Q. Are wellies good to hike in?

A. Wellies are ideal for rainy days but are not suitable for hiking, where hiking boots or shoes would be more appropriate. Wellingtons provide little ankle support when walking long distances and across rougher terrains. They can be heavier than walking boots and, as they are not as snug to your foot, could give you blisters if walking in for a long period of time. You are also more at risk of slipping or tripping in wellington boots.
