The festival season is upon us. So, let the fun begin, and hopefully the sunshine will follow. Whether you are heading to a music festival, a food festival, or a family festival, it’s all about having a good time and making memories. That said, it’s still sensible to be prepared for unpredictable weather, we are in the UK after all. And if there’s one thing that can dampen the vibe, it is having cold, soggy feet. The solution? A great pair of wellies.

And who better to inspire us than Australian brand Merry People and its brilliantly beautiful boots?

Thanks to the team at Merry People, welly boots (or gumboots, as they call them) have had the ultimate glow-up. So, pull on a pair and get ready for the compliments.

Perfect day to night boot with a funky twist
“I love them. They are so versatile and comfortable. I have to restrain myself from buying a second colour. Perfect for festival season.” Reviewer

There are so many the reasons we love this festival ready footwear. First and foremost, they are made from thick natural rubber and are 100% waterproof, which may sound a bit boring, but you’ll appreciate having dry feet when you are dancing in those muddy festival fields.

These boots are also lovely and warm. So, as the sun goes down and the headline act appears, your tootsies will be toasty and snug. Lined with neoprene and tested for sub-zero temperatures, you can chill without feeling the chill.

If you are heading to one of the bigger events, you’re sure to be maxing out your daily steps getting from the campsite to the stage. So comfy boots are essential, and these have inbuilt arch support and a cushy neoprene lining, as well as enhanced traction grip, so you can throw all the shapes you like to the sound of your favourite artists – blister free.

Love ’em!
“Took my new boots to a folk festival where they got me through 6 days of heat, mud, torrential downpours, walking, dancing in comfort and style.”

Although wellies aren’t famous for being a stylish fashion choice, these are not your average wellies. Whatever look you’re planning to rock, there’s a tone and style to match, from neutrals and pastels to bright, bold colours. And there’s a great mix of styles too. We love the best-selling Bobbi ankle boot and the fashion-forward Tully boot with its platform-style sole. It you like a ‘proper welly’ you can opt for the taller mid-calf Darcy and knee-high Fergie boots.

Our favourite thing about these boots is that they are so versatile. Yes, they are perfect for festivals, but they were made for so much more. From pottering about in the garden to walking the dog, whether you’re on the farm or at the beach, these boots turn every day into a joyous adventure. With unisex styling everyone can fill their boots, there’s even a kids’ range. Imagine matching family wellies – too cute.

People all over the world love the brand and it has more than 15,000 five-star reviews to prove it. So, if you want to nail festival chic, we suggest you plump for a pair of Merry People boots.
