Hunter can trace its origins back to the setting up of the North British Rubber Company in 1856, when Henry Lee Norris, and American entrepreneur landed in Scotland to find a home for his boot making company. The Hunter Original wellington was first introduced in 1956 and has become recognised the world over as the iconic rubber boot for men, women and children. Renowned for comfort and performance, the Hunter Original is created on an orthopaedic last for the best fit possible, and is hand-made from twenty eight parts. Hunter’s collections include accessories, rubber footwear, technical boots for fieldsports and recently launched outerwear and leather footwear collections.
