What is Neoprene?
Neoprene is a solid rubber material, which is used for wetsuits due to its highly insulating qualities. The neoprene fabric contains micro bubbles which prevent dissipation of heat and provides excellent thermal insulation, elasticity, and outstanding resilience. The qualities of neoprene make it the best material to line Wellington boots.
What are Neoprene Wellies?
Neoprene Wellington boots are perfect for optimum warmth and comfort during those colder months of the year, and they come in a thickness of 3mm or 5mm. Our specialist neoprene lining keeps feet warm and dry in temperatures as low as -15 degrees, and our boots are made from unique Chamolux rubber on the outside, making them 100% waterproof and comfortable to wear.
Each of our lined boots have been developed with a range of activities in mind, so whether you are after boots for the garden, fieldsports, a festival or country walks we have the right pair for you.
Let us talk you through our range of men’s neoprene wellies and lady’s neoprene wellies and help you choose which boots are suitable for you.
