multicoloured/printed wellies?
Should they be accepted in rural society or should the green Wellington live on without competition?

Tricky one this. I certainly think the style of the green welly should be retained at all costs (heavy sole, nice little buckle round the top), although having seen LBBs Thomas The Tank Engine wellies I think there is room for improvement in adult wellies.
I did look into this at one point, lusting after some green wellies with frog-eyes in the toes, and the pair I found would have set me back £150. Totally unnacceptable.

However, I draw the line at poncy little half-mast wellies with snowdrops on. They are for ladies of a certain age who are almost certainly on the parish council and secretly fancy the vicar.

All this talk about green wellies :shock:

Everyone knows proper "working" wellies should be black :!: :wink: :lol:

Wellies should be green and mudsplattered... any other sort should be burnt (although obviously somewhere very remote due to the whole burning rubber thing...)

It's clearly evolution at work here. The green welly (or goloshus naturalis as it is properly known) is the original breed of welly, it's green skin hiding it in the meadow grass of its natural habitat. During the industrial revolution the countryside was effected by pollution and the welly had to adapt to survive predation and thus the black welly (goloshus workmanis) was first observed. Recently, as urban sprawl increases, wellies have been forced to adapt to the urban environment by adopting the bright colours and patterns of the city, hence multicoloured (goloshus technicolourdreamcoatis) and painted (goloshus vangoghis) wellies have been observed.

Hope that helps.

A brilliant description from Mr Barrel Scrapper.....I'm afraid I quite like the patterned wellies for a bit of variety though. But you can't beat a pair of nice green wellies with fluffy insoles!

I think multi-coloured wellies should be ritually burned along with all sets of the Floral Dance. So there. :) :lol:

Mine have got splits in so need to get new ones - not v nice trying to wade thru mud on ur heels! - but think possibly might be sticking with green ones (or or maybe black) as thats what Cornwall Farmers sells! Although bright pink ones could be fun, think might scare the cows!

Absolutely! Trasnfer them to the old 78rpms first, though (after all, wax burns easier.....)
