THE WELLY WAREHOUSE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO WARM WINTER WELLIES
Designed to provide extra insulation and combat the cold, neoprene lined wellies are the warmest and most comfortable wellies on the market
Lots of people suffer from cold feet in their wellies, but the good news is, with our fantastic selection of insulated wellington boots there's now absolutely no need to. Tried and tested by members of the Welly Warehouse team, we have a variety of warm winter wellies to keep you comfortable, warm and dry throughout the very depths of winter, right down to subzero temperatures.
Neoprene is used extensively in wellies these days as an insulating material. The same material used to make wetsuits, neoprene is filled with millions of tiny air bubbles that trap a layer of warm air next to your skin, and therefore keep you warm. The thicker the neoprene inside your wellies, the more effective the insulation against the cold will be. It's also therefore vital that you select a boot that's going to fit you properly - if it's too wide around the top of the leg then all the warm air will escape and you'll feel none of the benefit.
There are two main options when it comes to neoprene wellies. Many brands produce traditional rubber boots incorporating a full neoprene lining, while others, such as Muck Boots, Grubs and Bogs, have created a new range of waterproof neoprene boots which as well as offering extra warmth, also offer the comfort and stretch of the neoprene upper. These styles are particularly useful for those with wider calves that sometimes find traditional wellingtons too restrictive, or simply can't find a wide enough boot to fit at all.

When the conditions turn really harsh, you need wellies to keep your feet warm and dry, and to keep you upright on your feet! Browse our range of specialist, technically advanced wellington boots designed for exactly this kind of use.
Some feature extra-thick neoprene, the rule of thumb being, the thicker the neoprene, the warmer the boot. And some combine this with an extra layer of fleece as well, providing warmth and comfort down to extreme temperatures as low as minus 60C.
Some lines also incorporate specially designed anti-slip soles for significantly advanced levels of traction on dry and wet ice.
