Rockfish Samba Red Gloss Rain Boots Outfit + WIN A PAIR!

Rockfish Original Tall Gloss Samba Red Wellies Outfit

How amazing are these rain boots? It’s literally no secret that I adore wellies. Living in England means I’m reaching for them on a weekly basis, if not daily sometimes! One pair that I never had though was bright red, and despite numerous people telling me I needed them, they still hadn’t made it to my collection, until now!

These are the Rockfish Original Tall Gloss Samba Red Wellies and they’re stunning! I’ve owned a pair of Rockfish wellies before in the metallic fuchsia pink (see here), and I knew how comfortable they were, so when I needed to get a staple and classic like primary red, I just knew it was going to be these instead of Hunter. As much as I love Hunter, I find their prices are just a little too steep and the comfort isn’t even on par with Rockfish. These feel like walking on sponge – they’re so soft and snug, they’re actually a joy to wear and don’t feel cumbersome.

As soon as these rain boots arrived, I knew I wanted to take them out for a spin, so on the weekend Adam and I went for a little country walk down to the stream. You might remember me splashing in this stream from before (see here) as it’s one of my favourite places to go. I decided to keep my outfit simple with some black skinny jeans and a striped jumper from Joules, as well as a matching red rain coat, also from Joules, so I was all uniform. There’s nothing more fun than matching your rain coat to your wellies, ha ha!

These wellies definitely lived up to their expectations of being comfortable. They are hand made after all, so a lot of extra care and attention is given to them to make them better than the factory made pairs, so if you are looking for ultimate comfort in a pair of rain boots, definitely check out Rockfish and if you want to get 20% off all non sale items, use the code ROCK17 at the checkout! The red on these is simply stunning though, it reminds me of a bright post box red or a primary red that you’d find in a felt tip pen box.

The gloss is also incredible, they’re one of the shiniest pairs that I own actually, especially compare to my Hunter coloured wellies (not the glitter). They also use a glue that contains no animal products so they’re vegan friendly (find out more about how they make them here). I did take them in my usual size of a UK 6, so they do run very similar in sizing, but overall, these are much easier to wear. I’m beginning to wonder why I don’t have more Rockfish in my collection! Even my mum has a pair now since I got them for her for Mother’s Day! Have any of you tried them yet? And what do you think of my outfit? Don’t forget to read the text below as well to find out how you can win your own pair!

    A great look Lorna , nice to see you having fun in the stream , I have hunters but no rockfish yet . take care Ian

    • October 7, 2017 / 3:15 pm

      Thanks, Ian! Glad you liked the photos! Maybe it’s time to invest in Rockfish too?

  2. October 7, 2017 / 2:58 pm

    Wow, Lorna, amazing wellies.
    The colour is anazing and you look stunning in them.
    You look so happy and you even look rejuvenated, the hapiness sparkles in your eyes.

    What a pity I don’t have facebook or twitter, so I won’t be able to wnter the contest.
    However, I am thinking of ordeting a pair with the discount. Do you know if the sizing is similar to hunter boots?

    • October 7, 2017 / 3:16 pm

      Hi! That’s a shame you can’t enter, but definitely take advantage of the discount code! I have found that Rockfish for me run the same as Hunter do, pretty much exactly the same. I’m not sure on the men’s though obviously, but the women’s are the same. They are getting new stock soon, mid October I think!

      • October 7, 2017 / 8:59 pm

        Thanks, I will probably wait unitl the restocking. Now the only wellies my size or the black ones. How long will the discount be valid?

        • October 7, 2017 / 9:02 pm

          I think it should be valid until the end of the month! If not, I’m sure I can get it extended for the restock!

    GORGEOUS, Lorna! Red is definitely the best colour for wellies! And it’s lots of fun to paddle in the water in them, as well as squelching around in the mud!

    Wellies are my favourite clothes, definitely – so useful for every situation!

    • October 7, 2017 / 5:27 pm

      Glad you like them!

        I adore ’em. Though I fear if I won them they wouldn’t keep their red colour for too long… XD

        • October 7, 2017 / 9:42 pm

          Ha ha, maybe keep them out of the mud!

          • Barbara Grace
            October 7, 2017 / 9:46 pm

            Haha, but wellies and mud go together so well…

            • October 8, 2017 / 2:23 am

              They definitely are useful for that!

      Thank you and good luck!

  6. October 8, 2017 / 1:13 pm

    Oh I love how you matched the coat and boots together! So nice with the black and white. These sound and look like lovely boots too, shame I’m not in the UK to take advantage of the giveaway! Although to be fair it’s rarely rainy long enough here to make rainboots a necessity!

    Hope you are having a great weekend 🙂

      Good luck!

  16. October 12, 2017 / 8:54 pm

    They are such a vibrant and striking colour. It’s a really cheerful looking bright red – I wonder if splashing in the puddles and streams is extra satisfying when done in bright footwear? It certainly look so from your photos. 😀

    I also like how prettily the boots are reflected in the water too. 🙂

    • October 13, 2017 / 2:17 am

      You know I didn’t even notice the reflection! It is more cheery and fun though when you’re in bright colours!

      Thank you!

  21. October 24, 2017 / 1:17 am

    Lorna, I love the wellies… they look so amazing on you… I always wanted a tall pair of rain boots so that I could splash around in puddles but I have one calf that is a lot larger than the other due to the fire I was in… I used to buy all kinds of rain boots for both my girls and I encouraged them to jump and splash in puddles, they had so much fun xox

    • October 24, 2017 / 11:24 am

      That sounds like you’re making some lovely memories for your kids! Rockfish do adjustable calf ones, so you could make one side smaller and one side bigger!

      • October 25, 2017 / 4:08 am

        Lorna, you have peaked my interest… I didn’t know they were adjustable… I am going to look into them and see if I could possibly get them here in Canada. Even if they cost a little more, my foot wear lasts for years and I would totally enjoy them… thank you for letting me know xox

        • October 25, 2017 / 12:55 pm

          Yeah the adjustable ones have a extra folding flap on them and a buckle, my mum has them. You can tighten them or loosen them. Just measure your biggest calf and see if it fits with the adjustable measurement. I believe they ship internationally though!

Thanks for your comments =) I read & reply every one =)
