Why Welly Boots Are a Must Have For Glastonbury Festival 2008

Apr 19, 2008
We pray for of sunny weather to bless us at this years festivals but as we all know, particularly with the Glastonbury Festival, rain always seems to be there. So, it's best to have some forethought if you want a special look this year, no matter the weather. Of course, there are those who will always decide that flip flops are a more suitable footwear choice than the good old welly for the festivals. But you can count on the fact that they'll be the ones standing in that long queue to buy some emergency wellies, when their feet start to suffer in the mud and damp weather, or they end up with a broken toe because someone stepped on them.

So, do you head off to the Glastonbury Festival all glamorous and sexy praying that some hunk of a musician spots you in the audience and jets you away to his playboy mansion or do you dress down for the event? My thoughts, (if you want to be comfortable, and not ruin your designer gear in a mud bath) to stick with the more sensible items of attire. Don't worry, practical doesn't always have to be boring, and it's almost certain that after 24 hours jumping around to the music that everyone will look the same anyway, bedraggled, wet and dirty!

The key to festival fashion would be to stay loose. Always have an emergency outfit that you keep dry and clean, which will come in useful for your journey home. Pack some warm clothes like jumpers and vests too as it always gets cold at night, and for the day time, look at packing sarongs, shorts and vest tops. Not forgetting to drop that sunblock in your bag of course.

Practical footwear is of course essential, and you will be kicking yourself, if you opt for stiletto's or sandals. A decent pair of boots is fine and might just manage to survive the mud of Glastonbury Festival but for real comfort and style it has to be wellies that are number one. Worry not, welly boots can be stylish..i promise.

Wearing wellies at the Glastonbury Festival this year will leave you free to enjoy the excitement you honestly went there for in the first place, instead of having to watch where you walk all the time. Of course, there was a time, when welly boots were not the coolest footwear to be seen in, but all that is changing and fast, and now, no excuses, you can give it some proper welly at the festivals this year. You may even wish for rain when you see the choice of funky wellies on offer today.

Every possible colour, shape, design and size of welly is available for the Glastonbury festival fan to find that is cool and suits their charcter. There are cheap wellies, which are great for those on a budget, but be well advised that a lot of them don't do the job they're meant for, and will let in the water and cold quicker than your flip flops. Then there are the slightly dearer kind, which usually have a neoprene lining to give you that extra support, are natural rubber, cushioned and warm to wear, which allows your feet to breathe.

Wellies are fast becoming the new cool with the likes of Ashley Olsen, Mary Kate and Kate Moss, showing off in theirs. So, do yourself a favour and take a little time to look at what there is on offer for your welly boot fashion. The boring green farmer/fisherman style will probably make you look a nerd, so it's well worth making the right choice to get the look you're after in funky wellies. Spending a little money by investing in a good pair and looking after them correctly will keep you warm for a good few years of Glastonbury style..happy days.

A great trend in wellies that was instigated at the Glastonbury festival 2007 is the personalised welly boots. Dame Shirley Bassey wowed the media and crowds with her diamant pair of wellies last year and these are now the latest trend for Glastonbury 2008. With the design option of choosing your own words, i believe the fields of Glastonbury this year won't just be covered with mud, but also glittering diamant.
