Our Verdict

+ Includes fake fur lining for warmth Inner lining prone to slipping
+ Surprisingly comfortable– Fit not true to size. Customer reports of being to large
+ Removable lining 
Very quick & easy to put on 
+ Stylish boots 

Let’s be honest — finding the perfect pair of rain boots can be tricky. For starters, they need to be comfortable while also providing protection and warmth. If you care about style, things become even more difficult, as many manufacturers go with boring designs.

However, with its Wellibobs collection, Joules is looking to redefine boots and bring its own unique touch to the industry. But did Joules manage to do that, or is its offer just another addition to an already overcrowded market? Our Joules Wellibobs review is here to help you decide whether you should give them a try.

Wellibobs Features

  • Short Ankle boots
  • Inside material: Faux-fur lining (removable)
  • Outside material: Natural rubber
  • 100% Waterproof
  • Pull tab & elastic side
  • 1 inch high heel
  • Many different colours, patterns and prints
  • Sizes: Women UK3 to UK9  

So, what are Wellibobs? According to Joules’, Wellibobs are a unique take on the classic Wellington boots. They are made of the same material, natural rubber, but are shaped into the fashionable bootie cut. As a result, they are much shorter than Wellington boots, yet they still provide protection and comfort.

Wellibobs have a removable faux fur insole that adds an extra layer of warmth for those cold winter days. The boots also have an elasticated gusset and pull tab at the back of the boot which allows for easy on and off.

So, on paper, the Joules Wellibobs boots are a must-have, especially if you enjoy fashionable boots. But let’s take a closer look and see if they manage to impress us.

Our Impressions of Joules Wellibobs

We can’t deny that the Joules Wellibobs stunned us as soon as we opened the package. Their unique design and low profile are what make them stand out from any other wellington boots we have ever tried. In fact, we were very excited about giving them a try and seeing how they compare to similar short boots.

It’s also worth noting that the build quality is really impressive, giving off a high-end vibe that most short wellie boots fail to provide. We were a bit concerned about the insole and elasticated gusset quality, they look sturdy and durable enough, but only time will tell. All in all, the Joules Wellibobs boots look promising!

Welliebobs: Style

As previously mentioned, the Joules Wellibobs boots have a unique style and design. We aren’t only talking about their shape, but also the patterns. With more than 20 prints and patterns available, you can surely find one that fits your style.

For our Wellibobs review, we went for a simple yet interesting design, a blue boot, yellow sole and features dog prints. The print quality is impressive and wouldn’t fade anytime soon, even when exposed to rain and sunlight. So, if you want a fashionable pair of boots, Joules has got you covered!


When it comes to comfort, we can happily say that the Joules Wellibobs boots don’t disappoint. Thanks to their fur insole and interior lining, our feet felt comfortable all throughout the day. If you aren’t excited about the fur insoles, you can always replace them with an after market option for additional comfort or use socks.

It’s also worth mentioning that, while some short heeled wellie boots tend to become uncomfortable over a period of time, the Wellibobs didn’t cause any fatigue or pain.

But what’s truly special about Wellibobs is their ease of wearing. The elasticated gusset and looped pull tabs allowed us to put the boots on and take them off without any hassle.

Weather Protection

Just like any Wellington boots, the Wellibobs protect against rain, snow, and other weather conditions. In fact, all pairs are 100% waterproof, meaning that you don’t have to worry about water infiltration. Thanks to its high-quality rubber, we are almost certain that you won’t have to deal with holes or ruptures from general wear and tear.

Due to the Wellibobs boot’s short ankle design, some raindrops do slip down the top and they’re not going to cope with deep puddles and streams.


The faux fur lining of the Joules Wellibobs is very soft and provides enough warmth for low temperatures. And if you want even more heat retention, you can change the insole with thicker material such as wool.

However, the lining wasn’t as effective when the temperatures dropped closer to the freezing point. So keep that in mind if you plan on using the Joules Wellibobs during the harsh winter days.

Joules Wellibobs Review: Final Thoughts

Overall, it’s easy to see why the Joules Wellibobs are some of the most exciting and unique short boots on the market. Not only are they comfortable, but they also provide enough protection against weather conditions. Furthermore, thanks to their stylish prints and patterns, the Wellibobs boots are also fashionable.

So if you want a nice-looking and reliable pair of short boots, you can’t go far wrong with a pair Joules Wellibobs short wellington boots
