Well, this isn't really a new trend but Hunter Boots are experiencing a resurgence in popularity once again. Created by Henry Lee Norris, who in 1856 launched Hunter Boot Ltd. in Edinburgh, the boots were commissioned later by the War Office during World War I as the British military required a sturdy combat boot for the trenches. In 1986, Her Majesty honoured Hunter Boots with a Royal Warrant in recognition of their outstanding quality.
Asides from practicality and sturdiness, these boots are fashion now for both men and women and they look pretty much amazing with a slimmer-fit pair of jeans. Perfect for the long winter to come ahead. Sorry, friends in the warmer, drier parts of the world - none of this will make any sense to you, I'm sure! Wellies are where it's at this winter.
