Shmooz proudly presents a brand which oozes British heritage with their iconic Original Boot holding two Royal Warrants of Appointment to HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. Hunter are known worldwide for their classic, high quality wellington boots such as the Original Tall and the Original Short Gloss.
Founded in 1856 Hunter is a British footwear brand with a rich history, founded by Henry Lee Norris when we arrived in Scotland from America. The brand started off as the North British Rubber Company and produced boots and other effective industrial items. Production of boots rose massively during World War I in 1914 as soldier’s required high quality, functional boots and over 1 million boots were produced during this time. In 1956 the Original Wellington was created and is still an iconic, desired style now which is still handcrafted from 28 parts.
Renowned worldwide for their high quality, Hunter was awarded a Royal Warrant by Appointment to HRH Duke of Edinburgh and 1977 and later to HM The Queen in 1986 which verified their quality. Hunter is now an instantly recognisable brand; we stock the Hunter classics from the Original Tall Gloss wellington to the Original Short Gloss Wellington boot which are available in a range of colours.
