Hunter Rain Boots Starcloud Wellies in Neptune Glitter Review

Hunter Rain Boots Original Tall Starcloud Wellies in Neptune

Ok, so I don’t even know where to begin with these, but I will try! Have you ever dreamed up your favourite pair of shoes or a bag that you wished would be released as it was your ultimate, must have piece? Then you got annoyed trying to find something that comes close to your vision and it just doesn’t exist? Well that’s kind of what happens to me. I always want something that doesn’t exist and then not long after, it becomes a trend and is available (much like my love of velvet, basket bags and coral). Talk about Truman Show, right? Well my dream rain boots had always been a sapphire shade with glitter! In fact, it was only a couple of months ago that I was talking to my friend about my dream pair of Hunter wellies and they were a sapphire gloss blue, filled with glitter, so they reminded me of the galaxy, but subtle enough to be worn without being flashy…

The Starcloud Collection

About 2 weeks ago, I was on the Hunter Boots website and what was brand new in? These! I did a double take on them thinking they surely couldn’t have read my mind and released wellies that I had been dreaming of? But they did! Hunter brought out a galaxy inspired collection called Starcloud and they actually have 3 different colours available (see below) and a style with buckles! I saw this particular rain boot first, the Original Tall Starcloud in Neptune, but I was also gravitating towards the green as they looked so pretty. I would probably say I was mesmerised by all of them.

The Price

The price was a bit steep though, that’s one thing that did put me off. Hunter rain boots often cost a lot, but if you want wellies with glitter, you have to pay a lot more, and for a pair of rubber boots, I wasn’t really feeling that so I didn’t get them right away. I managed to find a 10% off discount code, which took them down to ยฃ99 instead of ยฃ110, which was a bit better. Then, one of my close friends gave me a voucher for Hunter as a gift, which I was overwhelmed by, and I put the rest myself. So, I was finally able to get my dream rain boots!

The Glitter & Colour

As soon as they arrived, I couldn’t wait to rip open the package and see what they looked like in real life, and I was not disappointed at all. The sapphire blue is gorgeous, it does actually look like a jewel tone, and the glitter inside the rubber is a mixture of silver and green (see the close up photo) which just reflects the light beautifully. They’re the glossiest and shiniest rain boots that I own! Hunter boots are always handcrafted from 28 parts of natural rubber, and this is the first time that I’ve ever tried out a different kind of style like this. I do have my Rockfish metallic pink wellies, but I’ve never had glitter. They’re genuinely a stunning deep blue which has a metallic depth to it and lots of glitz with subtle glitter inside the rubber. It’s not the type of glitter that’s on the outside and will fall off.

The Size

When it comes to ladies wellies, I think these are one of the fanciest that I have seen! A pair of Hunter wellies is something that everyone seems to own (I, myself have numerous colours) and jazzing it up a bit with glitter in this Neptune shade, why not? I took a size 40 or UK 7 in these as I want to be able to wear them all through winter without getting cold feet, so they do run true to size. I usually have a size UK 6 for summer with a thin sock, then I have a 7 for winter with thick socks. So depending on what season you want to wear yours and if you’re wanting thicker or thinner socks, choose the size that is suited to those requirements.

The Comfort & Versatility

In terms of comfort, these are really comfortable and easy to wear like Hunter is known for. The lining is fabric, not rubber, so they are softer on the inside. I do find that you need to wear socks though of some sort as if you don’t, they can cause blisters. But I know I would always wear them with mine. When it comes to the versatility of these Hunter rain boots though, I would say they are as easy to wear as the classic navy. From afar, these look like a gloss navy that shines nicely, so it’s only up close when you can see that the rain boots are glitter, so they really are easy to wear with anything, without looking to flashy or over the top. That’s what I love about the Starcloud collection even more! I know how special these women’s wellies are and other people do when they get up close. What more could you ask for in a pair of Hunter boots?

Overall Opinion

My overall opinion of the Hunter Boots Original Tall Starcloud in Neptune is one of excitement and happiness! I would probably give them 9.5 out of 10, and for a pair of wellies that I dreamed of first, then actually owned them in person, they’re perfect. I only don’t give them full marks purely because the price is very high and I have owned slightly more comfortable pairs (like Rockfish – those come out top in the comfort department), but in terms of the gloss, the sapphire blue, the glitter, and the ease of wearing them, Neptune come out top! Aren’t they just gorgeous?! You can also see a video of them on me in this slide show here, just click the right arrow on the image.

    Wow I love these wellies and they suit you perfectly Lorna! The sapphire blue shade is ideal for you, as is the glitter, as I know you’re also fascinated by space! The quality of the glitter looks really good too, I like the way it’s a part of the rubber and not just added on the outside. That way you know the glitter will stay put! It’s amazing how you dreamt up these boots, and they soon appeared, like magic! Maybe you should be a trend forecaster for Hunter wellies!

    Lots of love Saba xx

    How on Earth do you manage to make wellies sexy, Lorna…?

    • September 11, 2017 / 10:54 pm

      Ha ha, I’m not sure I do? But I’ve got another pair to share with you soon which I do actually think are quite sexy!

    I’ve never had much luck with wellies myself. Every time I wear them my foot goes extremely cold, poor circulation no doubt but despite the socks I never seems to be able to stay warm. That said, your new pair are gorgeous, I love the glitter! Also, love how you hunt down the discount codes like I do ๐Ÿ™‚

      I always do discount codes! All the time, ha ha ๐Ÿ˜€

      Have you tried the fabric lined wellies like Hunter and wearing them with the boot socks? That really helps! I do have a pair of fleece lined ones too, which are really warm!

      Thanks, Len!

    Very nice indeed! The price is a bit startling… but if you are going to get a lot of use from them then they pay for themselves before too long anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚ It still amuses me, with my farm background, that wellies have become such a fashion item. Gosh… when I think back to the days of just plain green or black wellies slightly caked in dried cow dung I see how far things have come. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    This might surprise you, maybe, but of all the variations in this collection I like the Comet Orange ones the best. ๐Ÿ˜€ But they’re all really nice.

    • September 11, 2017 / 11:02 pm

      The price is very startling indeed! And I know, they really have become much more trendy than their original use ๐Ÿ˜€ And that does surprise me, I was certain you would choose the green there!

    These Rain Boots in Neptune are really very fashionable and nice. Also the price is OK: But a women’s leg looks very attractive. Great product. Really.

    • September 11, 2017 / 11:03 pm

      I think they’re quite pricey, but so beautiful!

  7. September 12, 2017 / 1:31 pm

    they look lovely and very functional <3

    • September 12, 2017 / 4:55 pm

      Glad you like them!

  8. September 12, 2017 / 2:10 pm

    Oh they are beautiful! I love anything blue, blue and glitter is even better! ๐Ÿ™‚ While it’s not often rainboot weather here, I think that a pair like this to bring a little glitter to a dull rainy day is the way to go if it was! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you are having a lovely start to the week ๐Ÿ™‚

    Loved your Hunter boots, Lorna, how lovely they are with glitter! The colour is amazing! And that’s so good that you got a voucher from a friend and paid the other part, and that the price came down! This purchase was really so good and I want to have some glitter Hunter boots, too, for the new season! Hope you have a lovely week and that you are fine, with some energy!

    I love the glitter flecks they have in this style. I have a couple pairs of wellies and I could use a new pair. I will say that Hunters last awhile so it’s a great brand. Love these! <3 x/Madison

    Wow Lorna, the hunters look amazing. So good again to see you in hunters, although I can’t see your entire outfit. The glitters are so cool on them and your timing is perfect. It is such hunter-weather over here, I even found my navy hunters again so I can wear them outside. Stay sexy with your wellies Lorna.

    • September 14, 2017 / 12:29 pm

      Thanks! Yeah, it’s freezing cold now and wet frequently, so it’s definitely Hunter weather here now!

  15. September 18, 2017 / 12:27 am

    Awww these boots are so beautiful. I usually tend to take a back seat when it comes to wellies, and I think like you for lack of finding what I really want. I think it’s time to invest in one. These look amazing especially with the glitter on them

    • September 18, 2017 / 2:02 am

      They’re definitely worth it if it rains a lot where you are!

    Hi Lorna! OMG these willies are really beautiful and you look adorable as always wearing them. They really look great! I didn’t know about these new colours from Hunter but they made a great job. Did you get many compliments about your new willies?
