Joules wellies

Be prepared for holidays, getaways and every rainy day in-between.

When planning your UK holiday, especially outside the summer months, we recommend you pack prepared and take along a pair of wellies. Our friends at Joules have kindly curated a guide to help you find the right wellies for you, perfect for wet weather, walking, and completing (almost) any outfit.

Everyone needs a trusty pair of wellies. To say they are a wardrobe staple in Great Britain is something of an understatement. Whether you’re planning a long walk with the dog or just getting out for some fresh air, whatever the weather, no feet should be without a pair.

Family in wellies

Joules has been making wellies for the whole family for over 25 years. In that time the brand has built a collection that has the rainy-day needs, from the smallest to the tallest member of the family covered.

Adorned with eye-catching colours and hand-drawn prints (thanks to Joules’ in-house print team) each is more than just a pretty face; all the soles on the wellies are designed using car tyre tread technology that provides better grip and water dispersal. Handmade on a traditional last (a last is a foot-shaped wooden mould around which footwear is built), they're also covered by a One Year Welly Guarantee.

To help you choose your new wellies so you can enjoy winter to its fullest, here’s a guide to the many styles Joules offers. We’re certain there’s a pair to suit everyone.

Wellies for women

Ladies wellies

We speak with confidence when we say that Joules has a welly for every woman.


If you like a classic height welly then you’ll love Joules’ Printed Wellies that showcase some of the brand’s best-loved prints. The Classic Printed Wellies come with an adjustable back gusset for ultimate comfort, a printed lining, and (as mentioned above) a flexible sole that’s made for dealing with slippery surfaces. Joules' new Collette Wellies offer something a little different as they come with a side zip fastening with interchangeable tassels.


Mid-height wellies are perfect for all sizes of calves and are better for shorter legs – many women under 5’3 find classic tall wellies a bit too tall. Check out the Mid Height Molly Welly that features some of Joules’ best-loved prints.


Reaching to the ankle or just below, these are Joules' easiest ‘pop-on’ wellies, perfect for anything from dashes into the garden to dog walking. Naturally, they are available in a whole host of prints. Try the best-selling Wellibob - there are plenty of prints to choose from. Even shorter are the Pop On Welly Clogs complete with a woven heel pull to keep them secure. For a classic Chelsea-boot style take a look at the Ashby Rubber Lace Up Chelsea Boots.

Wellies for men

Men's wellies

For a classic look, Joules offers heritage-inspired Fieldmoore Wellies with a neoprene lining for extra warmth. Perfect for early dog walks and weekend country jaunts, these wellies will see you through many a season.

Wellies for children and babies

Children's wellies

Joules’ children’s wellies for boys and girls are always a hit with little ones who want to get outdoors and into any nearby puddles, and who can blame them? The Printed Wellies show off hand-drawn prints perfectly while the Roll Up Flexible Printed Wellies are a great option if you’re always on the move. And if you’re after more of a casual option that your little ones can wear every day, Joules’ short-height wellies tick all the boxes.

A little welly wisdom…

Joules wellies

Once you’ve chosen the style that’s right for you, keeping your wellies in tip-top condition is as easy as 1,2,3.

  1. Keep them clean. Wellies are made for mud, but they do need to be washed. Use warm soapy water and let them dry naturally.
  2. Store them in a cool, dry place. Better still, keep them in a purpose-made welly bag.
  3. Protect your wellies with a product such as our Buffer Up Welly Spray, which is designed to restore shine and keep the rubber supple.
