10 Easy Pieces: Boot Racks for Wellies

September 11, 2018

Get ready for muddy season in the garden. I grew up in Boston, where a number of British ways have managed to linger: We call our mothers Mum (and our bottoms bums), eat our share of fish-and-chips, and, at least in my house, refer to our rubber boots as Wellies (short for Wellingtons). But the boot rack, a simple, ingenious staple of British back entries and mudrooms, has mysteriously yet to be discovered in these parts. The time is right.

Here are 10 favorite boot racks for Wellies.

With its tapered pegs, the Henderson Oak Wellington Boot Stand also shown in the top photo is £70; from Cotswold Co., it has a Shaker-esque silhouette.

Wellies, by the way, get their name from the 1st Duke of Wellington, an early-19th-century style setter, who had his shoemaker model his footwear after Hessian soldiers’ boots.

Daughter- and mother-in-law duo Natalie Evans and Jacqueline Wilmington of Natajaq make racks in the Annie Sloan chalk paint colors of your choice. Their Two-Pair Welly Boot Rack, shown, is £55; and the Four-Pair Welly Boot Rack is £75.
