They are Stylish

With a tall calf and an elegant buckle strap reminiscent of equestrian boots, the style is often compared to the Hunters Original brand. Sandringham fits snugly through the calf and ankle. Unlike less-fitted rain boots, these boots won’t flop around your calves and feet when you’re walk.

The fitted design allows them to stay secure while you are walking or working. The boots’ long shaft, stops just below the knee, which creates an elongated silhouette.

They are Functional

Despite its classic look, the Sandringham is also built for rugged use. The western style block heel offers the ability to grip a stirrup or keep your balance on a muddy slope or while cleaning out a farmyard pen.

Meanwhile, the thick soles and textured treads help grip and reduce slippage. Its sturdy sole makes it a good choice for icy weather conditions. The insole does not have a thick pad, this can easily be remedied by slipping in a thicker insole.

They are Comfortable

If you’re looking for a nice boot that keeps your legs and feet dry during a wet or muddy day, the Sandringham is a great choice. The boots are lined and padded for extra comfort. Though you probably wont want to wear them for extensive walking.

Crafted from a soft and flexible PVC material, the boot remains supple and adapts easily to your everyday lifestyle and needs.

They are Waterproof

When designing the Sandringham boot, the Cotswold brand had wet (100% waterproof), cold, and muddy weather in mind. This boot is made to withstand muddy fields, boggy marshes, animal pens, and dog walks.

They are Affordable

Unlike other brands that offer designer looks at designer prices, the Sandringham wellington delivers exceptional style at an affordable cost. The Sandringham boots are a great way to achieve the look that Hunters boots provide without the expensive price tag.

A Few Things to Consider 

The Sandringham boots are true to size, so order the boots in your normal shoes size. If the boot fits your foot with a little extra sliding room, you can always add a wellington boot sock for additional snugness and warmth or add an insole.

While many people find the material flexible, some might find the boot’s uppers a bit stiff at first. If this happens to you, a bit of gentle wear should help break them in quickly for a more flexible fit.

The narrow fit in the calf and ankle might require a bit of a tug to remove the boot. The boots have a kick spur on the heel to help with boot removal. The boots are not suitable for people with wide calves due to the narrow boot shaft. The boots do come with an adjustable side buckle, but this is only for decorative purposes, it won’t adjust the fit of the boot

The boots have a thin synthetic inner lining, which does not provide any insulation from the cold. This means that the boot can comfortably be worn in the summer and feet won’t get too hot and sweaty. In the colder months, thick socks will be required to keep feet warm.

Final Thoughts

If you’re in search of fully waterproof boots that combine fashion and quality with practicality and durability, then the Cotswold Sandringham wellington boots are a good option. The Sandringham boots are available at an affordable price from Amazon

Questions & Answers: Cotswold Sandringham Boots

How high are the Sandringham boots?

The approximate height of the size 6 boots is 41cm from the bottom of the sole to the top of the shaft. The top of the boots are called knee high boots, but they fit comfortably below the knee, so as not to rub when walking

Are the boots true to size?

Are boots suitable for wide calves?

No, the Cotswold Sandringham boots are not well suited for wide calves. The shaft is not particularly wide and there are no adjustments. A size 6 in the boots has a circumference of approximately 15.5 inches \ 40 cm at the opening of the boots.

Are the Sandringham wellies vegan?


Why are the Cotswold Sandringham boots so cheap compared to other similar boots?

The boots are made from PVC (plastic), more expensive boots are usually made from rubber. For example, the Hunter Orignal tall boots look very similar to the Sandringham boots but are made from natural rubber and cost about twice the price.

Is it easy to put the boots on and take them off?

If you have wide feet or wide calves, you may find the boots tricky to put on and take off as the shaft of the boots is quite slim. As the boots are made from PVC the boots will not stretch. There is not kick spur or pull tab to help take the boots off or pull them on

I've been working with rubber boots (aka rain boots, wellies) in one way or another, since 2009. So, i've seen a lot of wellington boots in my time. I create most of the content for the website, which i hope you find useful.
