About Us


Founded in Scotland in 1856, by Henry Lee Norris, the North British Rubber Co., later to become known as Hunter Boot Ltd. made rubber boots, as well as other durable rubber products. The boots quickly became the most popular and profitable category.  The North British Rubber Co. began to expand the offering to create boots suited for everyone, from dairy farms to field boots. Hunter became known for its practical and knack for creative forward-thinking designs, a legacy that continues today.

At the heart of the brand lies the Original Wellington Boot. First introduced in 1956, the globally recognized boot stands as a testament to our commitment to excellence.

Hunter has built on its heritage, expanding the footwear collection to outerwear, bags and accessories. Embracing both rural and urban settings, our function-driven pieces are meticulously designed for outside performance, always seamlessly blending function with style.
