SALE Supalite PU Wellington

Price: 50.00

Category: Boots, Chaps and Gaiters

Our wellies will perform better in almost every way than rubber wellies and the cost is significantly less.

Our favourite quote from a customer about her Supalite wellingtons: "I've been out with the dogs today, in long wet grass... and I felt like I was walking in my slippers!"

What is a "PU wellington" and why is it different?

It's all about the material - Polyurethane (PU). PU is a polymer material that has been described as having the elasticity of rubber and the durability of metal. PU offers a number of advantages to footwear:

It is a lightweight material. In fact, around 35-40% lighter than rubber.

PU is full of tiny air bubbles - air is a great insulator against heat and cold. PU boots will perform well in keeping your feet warm in cold conditions (and cooler in hot conditions!).

The tiny air bubbles also perfom a terrific job in shock absorption. With each step you take, the air bubbles expand and contract to give you better comfort and protection against muscle fatigue.

Flex life - PU can be expected to outlast other elastomer materials. Abrasion and tear resistance that is greater than rubber, which should allow the boots to last longer.

Excellent resistance to attacks by fertilizer, fuel oil, solvents and other common chemicals.

All together, PU is a great material for making wellington boots - it's lightweight, flexible, tough and comfortable.

So, why aren't all wellingtons made from PU? Simply because the technology and investment required to make wellingtons with PU creates a barrier of entry for the vast majority of factories - these Kanyon Supalite wellingtons really are pretty cool if you are a manufacturing geek!!

Is this a revolution against heavy and expensive rubber wellies? It should be...
