Hunter was established in 1856 when an American entrepreneur arrived in Scotland to find a home for his boot making business. Upon this, he acquired a block of buildings in Edinburgh and has since become one of the most renowned footwear brands across the globe. Their company grew exponentially within the first few decades from just 4 members of staff to over 600 and the demand for Hunter boots soared.
Initially, the manufacturing of wellington boots was not one of their most reputable products until World War I. In this time, the company was asked to design a sturdy boot suitable for the conditions in the flooded trenches and they manufactured 1,185,036 pairs. Upon this, their ubiquitous and stylish footwear became a functional necessity. As they provided exceptionally well in the 1st World War – the second was just as busy as they were asked to create more war materials from wellington boots to life belts and gas masks.
Their ‘original Green wellington’ was their first orthopedic boot which is highly famous today and still in their popular range. Hunter wellington boots from Cross Country Style can either be worn when carrying out equestrian activities or simply strolling through the beautiful British countryside.
