  1. Hi all,

    So I have a pair of Hunter Wellies, I believe they are the tall gloss boot in black. I purchased them in 2011 at Harrods while I was on a school trip to London. Since then, they've braved the massive snowstorms that I'm always subject to living in Chicago and NYC. Somewhere along the way (not quite sure when but I believe it was earlier this winter) I noticed that one of the buckles broke off. It's not completely off, it's still attached on one side, but as a result it flops against the top of my boot every time I walk. it's not a HUGE deal, but I'm usually a person who takes really good care of my things and I wish my Wellies reflected that. Anyway, my question is, does anyone know of a way I can get my boots fixed or replaced? Has this ever happened to anyone else? TIA :smile:
  2. some easily available rubber glue should do the trick, same glue you find for mending bike tyres or paddling pools
  3. I think you're not really supposed to wear your hunters in the cold. They are designed as rain boots, not snow boots. I think there is a temperature recommendation somewhere :smile:
  4. If you don't want to attempt the repair yourself, I'm sure a good cobbler can fix them for you! My "shoe guy" has performed a few miracles on some of my shoes!
