When it comes to packing for a beach trip, a pair of wellies may not be your first thought when it comes to footwear but we firmly believe that these brilliant waterproof boots can often save you from trouble.
They are especially handy for the trips to the beach during colder months and we always pop a pair in the bag before heading to the seaside. We asked our lovely Muddy Mums why they recommend wellies for beach walks – here are the top 5 reasons why.
1) The unpredictable British weather
We all know how surprising the British weather can be and it usually plays tricks on us when we’re happily roaming out and about. One moment we’re looking for shade from the sun, the next we’re back in wellies! A pair of good old wellies can be a lifesaver when you're caught out. They will keep out the wet and dirt whatever the weather. No one wants soaked and cold feet after all. They’re perfect for when we hit the beach during colder months too. Pack a pair of wellies before heading to the seaside and don’t let a sudden downpour spoil your little explorers’ outdoor fun!
2) Safety first
Holidays on the beach are wonderful but we always want to make sure our brave adventurers are safe and sound while running wild! Wellies are perfect for keeping those little feet safe from cuts and injuries. Broken glass or seashells can be hiding amongst the pebbles or in the sand so packing a pair of protective footwear seems like a great idea.
3) Comfy feet
Walking on pebbles in bare feet? No, thank you! Protect their little sensitive feet with a pair of sturdy wellies. They will also keep the sand and water out – perfect for when they jump in the waves. We believe that there is no bad weather, only the wrong kit and wellies are great for non-stop outdoor fun, come rain or shine.
4) Perfect for the little explorers
Wading through rock pools calls for a pair of wellies – their super-secure grippy soles will keep your brave explorers safe and comfy wherever they go, without slipping. If climbing and running wild is their second nature, the right protective footwear is essential. You don’t need to worry about their little feet getting hurt or sore – our super comfy PuddleStompers with soft padded insoles will keep them protected.
