Full Review

At the time of writing, these Dunlops had 73 reviews on and an excellent user rating of 4.6 out of a possible 5. These Men’s Dunlop Wellies are a classic, designed with a thick lugged rubber outsole for grip and traction, along with a heavy duty rubber upper to keep you clean and dry amidst the muck and mud. As they are designed as wide calf boots, they should fit over trousers easily. The inner lining is a thin polyester which doesn’t provide much warmth or cushioning. However, this feature also allows plenty of air ventilation (depending upon your leg size). With this in mind, we’d certainly recommend thick socks otherwise they may rub and leave you with cold, and potentially blistered feet. These are functional and practical boots and feature textured rubber to the toe and heel for durability, complete with the Dunlop logo to the sides.

As the Dunlop sales literature provocatively suggests: “Whatever you’re doing, do it in Dunlop®” (steady there missus!). These wellies are comfortable for general work and walking, but they do become uncomfortable after a few hours unlike more expensive boots on the market. Competitively priced for a footwear item that you can rely on despite the worst of the weather, the snow, the mud and the rest of the British summertime. We’d certainly recommend these Dunlops as an excellent choice for the best waterproof boots under £20. They are practical, durable, and offer great value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab Wellies
My wife (as the ladies sizes had run out) and I both had a pair of these, and found them generous in fit, could accommodate thick socks, and soles have very good grip. Also, sturdy, and look like they will last years. Very easy to pull on and off. My wife thinks they are fab, and stylish! Different to usual black wellingtons.
