With Glastonbury opening in full magnificent force this week, there will be a rush of festival-inspired fashion again.

And with the English countryside bound for the usual wet weather, we expect the denim cutoffs and the swishy skirts to once again be matched with the ultimate tough boots: the Wellington.

Based on the leather Hessian boots, which were standard issue military boots, the Wellington was made popular by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. It went on to become the go-to footwear for hunting and outdoor wear for the British aristocracy in the early 19th century.

Of course, now everybody wears them, and for a lot of things, too, whether you’re enjoying indie music in the muddy countryside or just doing errands around the city on a wet, rainy day.
