Ever since the 1st Duke of Wellington commissioned his London shoe smith to make the first Wellington boot, Wellingtons have been the practical boot of choice. Today most Wellington boots are made from rubber. Whilst rubber is extremely practical it can also be uncomfortable. That's where the David James Wellington Boot Sock come in. The Wellington boot socks are made with careful blends of advanced fibres. These blends, together with modern day knitting techniques, ensure high levels of comfort, durability and a superb fit. All of this makes them the perfect accompaniment when wearing Wellington boots. Comfort grip top - For all day comfort and no nasty ring marks. Calf length - Long enough to reach the top of your Wellingtons. Full cushioning - Full terry towel cushioning aids comfort and protection. Soft touch - Specially blended fibres give a super soft feel.
