Journalist, stylist and wellbeing expert Rosie Green is OBSESSED with the WonderWelly. Find out why you will be too.

Anyone else have a disconnect between the life they buy clothes for and the life they actually have?

When I go shopping, I gravitate towards bejewelled party dresses, cashmere sweaters, frothy blouses and furry jackets. As if my life is one spent floating from city apartment to waiting car to corner office to cocktail party.

My real life is actually a haphazard mix of the glamorous (glitzy events, shoots, magazine meetings) and the domestic (sideline spectating, cooking dinner, trying to tame my very wild garden).

When I’m at home I am in the latter zone. And so, in autumn and winter, what I really need is a rainproof coat, warm gloves, draught-excluding scarves and cottage-proof thermals. And, of course, wellies…

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with wellies. I love what they stand for. For me they are forever imbued with a child-like magic, making you adventure-ready whatever the weather. Pull them on and you are free to jump in puddles, skip along the shore, and squelch in the mud.

I also love the way they look. Pictures of Kate Moss, Alexa Chung and co. wearing them with short shorts and a rock-chick attitude at Glastonbury are style moments seared into my mind. Wellies are a style classic.

However, I’ve always found them unpleasant to wear. Cold. Heavy. Clumpy. Unsupportive. After a longish walk I’d feel as though I were wearing lead boots. A riverside amble/dog walk/blackberry-picking expedition would leave my feet aching with displeasure.

BUT all this changed when I met FitFlop’s WonderWelly.

FitFlop are famous for taking traditionally uncomfortable shoes (think the flip-flop and the ballerina) and making them comfortable all day long, and better for your posture and feet.

They’ve done this brilliantly with the WonderWelly. My new wellies are super bouncy. Springboard ridges put a zip in my step and the honeycomb heel cushioning delivers yet more foot satisfaction. Then there’s the pressure-diffusing contouring, an impact-absorbing sole, and a comfortingly soft lining. Oh, and they are lightweight too.

The WonderWelly doesn’t drag me down or hold me back. In fact, wearing these wellies encourages me to get up and get out there more than ever.

Now do you think I can wear them to my next party…?
