Regular readers will know that I posted this first back at the beginning of December as a Christmas present suggestion but, now that it is actually snowing outdoors, I thought a re-post was in order. I’m thrilled with my snow boots – both the moon version and the classic wellies that just happen to have a thermal neoprene lining & snow grips on the soles.


So if you’ve read me for a while, you’ll know that a) I am very attached to my Hunter Boots & that b) I was pretty excited when I was approached last spring to be asked to model the AW12 advertising campaign for Hunter, which appeared in Vogue, Elle, etc.

Anyway, that bit of disclosure over with, here’s the reason for the post. Hunter have launched Hunter Snow.


I have no obligation, contractual or otherwise to write about Hunter in any way, ever, but when the round robin press release dropped in my inbox, I hit the reply button like a whippet after a rabbit. “Please may I come into the showroom and do prancing about in those yeti boots for LLG?”, I asked. Because I just knew that certain of my readers would love these as much as I do. And also: perfect Christmas presents? I’m all about the practical this year. Ahem.


And I was right, because when I Tweeted & Instagrammed a little teaser of the padded yeti numbers (the Chatel snow boots) this morning, my feed went insane with wanting. Now, obviously I love my mud splattered Hunter wellies, but I would be lying if I said my toes didn’t get extremely cold in them when it snows. So all love to Hunter for making the padded Chatel snow boots the cosiest place to put your toes in this winter with their insulated lining & an elasticated cuff to stop snow seeping in. I’ve gone for navy in the big yeti numbers, which are £75

But I should also draw your attention to the upgraded-for-winter Hunter Boots from the Snow collection, which have a 4mm neoprene lining to keeps feet and legs warm and a tough Vibram® snowshoe outsole featuring Icetrek™ technology so you (hopefully) won’t go arse over tit when it freezes. These are £95.


There are also the Breckenridge ( in the middle photo), which I think are brilliant –  is a leather ankle boot for men and women with the Vibram® snowshoe outsole, a leather upper & a fabulous shearling lining. It can be folded over to form a shorter boot with a cuff, or left as a taller boot for harsher conditions.

Photo: Me in the white Hunter Chatel snow boots & my new Aritzia Le Fou silk dress. I’d like to point out that it’s actually a pretty foxy (& see through) dress when worn with high heeled ankle boots. With my snow boots, I’m afraid I look like I am wearing my nightie. I need to have a think about the correct sartorial choices when wearing GIANT snow boots on my feet.

I’m currently sat on the runway at Gatwick waiting for our very delayed flight to take off and fly us to Geneva so we can go skiing. My hunter snow boots that I found out about through LLG are in the hold and I can’t wait to wear them!


@annie: Ha! That’s what I like to hear! Someone taking my advice – most pleasing. I do hope you have a lovely holiday. LLGxx


Which ones have the thickest sole? My feet have to be far away from the concrete or snow.


@Catherine: I’m pretty sure that would be the moon boots, which have a super thick sole. LLGxx


Ha! I regret to inform you that there are no sartorial choices that work with snow boots, with the exception (perhaps) of skinny jeans (and whatever you want on top). I wear La Canadiennes – which come in many styles, many of them Montreal-snow-worthy – and my “snowboot” (a luxe shearling, rather more streamlined, if less fun, than those Hunters) still looks ridiculous with everything other than skinnies.


@K-Line: I wore my Hunters with thermal tights today with a woollen bell skirt, which looked quite nifty, but I think generalyl you are right: it has to be leggings or skinnies…LLGxx


They looks so lovely and warm 🙂


I’m super impressed with the price, I don’t know why I just assumed they’d be more!
Also re taking your advice – still loving the champenys face oil – my face is flaking after a lot of travel in the last 6 weeks – I’ve just put that on and already I feel less flaky and more human. Thank you!x


@Chooella: oh that’s great to hear! Thank you for letting me know. I was agreeably surprised by the price point of the boots too. I think they are great value. LLGxx


lovely! thanks for giving such great impressions 🙂
