Hunter, creators of the iconic original green wellington boot have created a brand new boot for their popular Balmoral collection. The Balmoral Equestrian Neoprene Boot is available in sizes 3-9 and comes in a choice of two traditional colours, black and brown.
A spokesperson for Hunter explains: “When we started designing our Balmoral Equestrian Neoprene Boot, we knew that we had to create a product that would live up the demands of our equestrian customers. So, we created a boot that could not only be comfortable, waterproof and stylish but also well suited to the terrain that horse riders encounter day to day.”
Throughout the creation process, Hunter strived to create a pair of boots that adhere to all these qualities. The new Balmoral Equestrian Neoprene Boots promise three simple but vital features, which are:
Protection in the Yard
The breakthrough Equestrian boot is a Hunter first. Constructed from a new rubber compound developed by Hunter, it boasts unique protection from acids and alkalis found in animal waste that can ruin other footwear.
Comfort in the Field
These waterproof riding boots have a rubber foot and neoprene leg for protection and warmth, offering excellent foot support and ankle flexibility. Hand constructed from individual parts, the boots have a technical Airmesh® lining. Thousands of microscopic filaments enable air to flow continuously throughout its surface, to help keep the foot comfortable. Together with the neoprene upper, this technology ensures all season comfort.
Style in the Saddle
Constructed with classic Hunter design features, the riding sole has a metal shank for stability, reinforcement to the inside leg and an elasticated leg opening for a snug fit. A heel kick-spur allows easy removal and two durable reflectors on the back of the leg increase visibility in low light.
The spokesperson for Hunter continues: “We are absolutely delighted with our new equestrian boots, and because we've worked so hard to make them not only functional but also very fashionable, we believe that these boots will be an absolute must for all our horse riding customers.”
Available at stockists nationwide and www.hunter-boot.com from April 2012. Renowned for their fit, comfort, performance, and British design, Hunter Boot Ltd can trace its origins back to the setting up of the North British Rubber Company in Scotland in 1856. The Original wellington was first introduced in 1956 and the hand crafted process of manufacture from 28 individual parts has changed little since.
