It is so difficult choosing mens wellies indeed I would say it is near impossible with all the styles that are available
Your shoe size
I think probably the best advice that we can give you is to make sure that you know his correct shoe size so that whichever mens wellies that you order you can make sure is going to fit comfortably. We think the best guide that you can have when choosing mens wellies is if you have a pair of branded walking boots. You should order your shoe size in mens wellies if you walking boots do not have a Vibram sole. If they do have a Vibram sole then look at the EU shoe size and order your mens wellies one Eu shoe size smaller than the Vibram sole unless your mens wellies state that they have a Vibram sole in which case you would order the same size.
The next biggest problem is calf circumference. It would be a good idea to measure your calf prior to ordering your mens wellies. Measure round your calf with a tape measure in cm. You now know your calf circumference. When you have selected your mens wellies and prior to purchasing them you will see a tab in the product detail that states sizing. Click the tab and find your shoe size and check the calf circumference. Make sure your mens wellies are least 1.5cm larger than you calf so that the boot is comfortable when you put it on. If you choose a mens welly that has a stretchy neoprene to then any will fit providing your calf circumference is not more than 46 cm. If your calf is larger than this then you will need to contact us so that we can direct you to the correct product.
If you have any odd fittings, for example wide ankles or any other such problems then please email us explaining in as much detail so that we can physically measure the mens welly prior to purchase.
Providing you follow the guide above you should have no problem with the fitting of your mens wellies and now the main thing is to decide which mens wellies will fit you.
Which mens wellies should I buy
This does all depend on what you will be using your mens wellies for. We have listed below a few categories that we feel most men use their wellington boots.
Mens Wellies for Gardening
If you are going to use your mens wellies for gardening and in particular for digging then you should look at brands with strong soles and if possible reinforced in steps as digging is very hard on any wellington boot. Probably one of the best would be the Edgewater which is made by Muck Boots. The instep is very reinforced plus the tread is very open so that the mud fall out very easily unlike cleated soles
Mens Wellies for Working
Men working wellies need to ne a heavy boot and if on a site you should always look at buying the safety mens wellies which can be found in the safety section. If working with Dairy then look at the Bogs Ultra as this particular grip has been designed to give maximum grip on hard surfaces with animal waste on even liquid manure. As an alternative dairy farmers should look at the Aigle Parcours 2 as this again offer superb grip on many surfaces and can withstand the acid found in animal waste.
Mens walking wellies
Mens walking wellies need to be light, durable and comfortable. They should have a tighter bridge so that the heel of the welly comes up with the heel of your foot. This is almost impossible to do in a wellington however many brands do get quite close to this. The key brands that we feel are the best walking wellies are Aigle or Bogs. Both have a tighter heel and bridge with a narrow ankle however the Bogs will cater for wider ankles because of the extra neoprene that will compress when worn.
