London, Jan 9 (IANS) Shoe firm Jimmy Choo and British brand Hunter have collaborated with each other to create the most luxurious Wellington boots. The end result is a natural rubber boot embossed with the luxury label’s signature crocodile print and branded top bind, a gold buckle and rivet detailing, and leopard print lining, reports vogue.co.uk.

“I was inspired by images from the festivals of the hip Brit girls in their wellies. This led to our collaboration with Hunter to produce a sleek interpretation of the British classic,” Jimmy Choo’s president and founder, Tamara Mellon explained.

Hunter is well known for their Wellington boots that are basically waterproof gumboots.

“Both brands have a strong visual identity which has worked well together - the resulting boot has a unique DNA of luxurious practicality,” Hunter’s chairman Peter Mullen said.

The boots will be sold exclusively at jimmychoo.com from June and priced at 250 pounds.
