Sporting Hares-Ascot

The Brand:

Sporting Hares is a quintessential country brand based in Wales. Renowned for their preppy sunglasses, they now make hardwearing wellingtons and clothing. Their Field Sport boot is a previous Wellington Challenge favourite-read the review here.

The Boots:

The Ascot wellington is an eye-catching high gloss boot with a classic design. It comes in three colours; Electric Blue, Apple Green and Cherry Red. £40.

Initial Thoughts:

The packaging is gorgeous for Sporting Hares boots, the boots themselves are a very high gloss finish, so ideal for a country fair, festival or walks to the local pub. You will definitely stand out in these! The design is really classic which I loved, making the colour the only “different” element. The supportive ankle and fit makes them comfortable to wear.

The Wellington Test-Pros/Cons:

  • +Very comfortable-easy to put on and feel secure.
  • +A high quality weighty feel and quality finish.
  • +A decent grip, suitable for moderate conditions.
  • +Good ankle support
  • -Only a high gloss finish and three colours-would be great to have more options.
  • +A good length.
  • -Unsuitable for practical country activities, in my opinion, due to high gloss and bright colours.
  • +Waterproof.
  • +Excellent value for money
  • +Good standard sizing. I took my normal size.

Terriers & Tweeds Wellington Challenge Rating Sporting Hares Ascot=8/10

Conclusion: If your looking for a fashionable wellington that retains a classic appearance then these boots would make a great choice. A wonderful present due to the great packaging. A fun, pretty boot with tons of practical details and very comfy. Great value.
