I was lucky enough to be sent a pair of Gumleaf Wellingtons following my outburst on twitter that my current pair had split. Much to my delight the company were keen to engage with their target audience and receive new enquiries and sales via word of mouth.
Gumleaf are only a small company, based on a farm in Norfolk. They have a good range of Wellingtons as well as some country clothing too. I like their traditional values as well as their personal and helpful approach which is very refreshing in this fast-paced world we now live in.
After perusing their website http://www.gumleaf.com I came across a pair which took my fancy – the Royal Zip Wellington. Within a few days the wellies arrived – it was like Christmas had come early! I don’t think I have ever had such a nice pair!
I tried then on and they fitted like a glove. They have a zip down the side and my first thoughts were that they were a lot more reasonable than a pair of Le Chameau Wellingtons.
The wellies retail at £165.00 which for me is still quite expensive however they are so well made and built to last. They blow my Countrywide basics out the water and with the amount I spend on cheap wellies I might as well invest in a pair that will last me a long time and be smart and comfortable too.
They sit slightly higher up my leg but feel more like shoes that boots as they mould to you. No longer do I feel that rubbing sensation when I realise I only put thin socks on that morning.
Whether they are used for your best wellingtons, for dog walking or farm work, I would recommend these boots, hands down. I know I am going to get a lot of wear out of them – one happy customers here – thank you Gumleaf Clothing!
