calf-wellies.jpgWellies have been moving into the mainstream in recent years. While once upon a time it was rare to see them outside of the country, these days a selection of funky prints (plus increasingly wet weather) has made even city dwellers start to reach for something a little more practical. These calf-length wellies by Faith, though, represent a slightly new direction for the humble wellie. Designed to look a little like cowboy boots (although not many cowboys wear polka dots, it has to be said), they're less like the clumpy old rain boots of old, and more like a regular boot made of rubber - albeit with a loud pattern.

The question is, though: would you wear them, or do you prefer to stick to something more traditional when you're out in the rain?
