Hunter can trace its origins back to the setting up of the North British Rubber Company in 1856 when Henry Lee Norris, an 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. Each pair of the iconic Original boots is handcrafted from twenty eight parts. Hunter recently appointed a new Creative Director, Alasdhair Willis. A new category, Hunter Original, was launched with a show at London Fashion Week in February. Hunter Field will launch in late 2014 and will deliver technical products born out of functionality and innovation. Hunter is proud to be an official partner of The BNY Mellon Boat Race.
