And in case you're wondering, the Wellington boot (or more commonly shortened to wellie) was invented by the Duke of Wellington. In the 18th century he instructed his shoemaker, Hoby of St. James's Street, London, to modify the Hessian boot.
The new boot was around mid-calf length and had low cut heels. Made of soft calfskin leather it was cut to fit more closely around the leg and was hard-wearing for riding, but smart enough for informal evening wear. Dubbed the Wellington boot, the name has stuck ever since.
Legend has it that the Wellington boot gave the British the edge in defeating Napoleon Boneparte in the Battle of Waterloo.
