About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 12 Mar 2015

These are the original “Wellington boots”, designed by the Duke of Wellington to be both practical and fashionable. After the Duke’s victory at Waterloo, this style of boot spread through London society, eventually inspiring the modern, more humble “Welly”.
