Squelch Wellies and Socks Review [AD]

[AD] Contains gifted products

There’s very little that’s more irritating than buying things for children for them to immediately change their mind about them. They choose their favourite colour and reassure you that they absolutely love it. Days later, it’s the wrong colour and there’s no way they’re wearing it. In a complete stroke of genius, Squelch Wellies have changed all that. These see-through wellies allow children to make them whatever colour they like. Simply put on your favourite socks under them and they’re immediately transformed. Squelch sell some rather wonderful socks too.

About Squelch Wellies

Unsurprisingly, Squelch Wellies were dreamed up by a mum with children who got bored of their wellies. Their boots are transparent with a lovely, thick sole and brilliant grip. Ideal for adventurous children who are happiest up a tree. Their socks are made from thick cotton to keep little feet nice and warm. Not only can children choose different patterns for their socks, there are seasonal options too. Want to wear Halloween or Christmas wellies? No problem, grab a pair of celebration socks.

Squelch Wellies is a lovely, ethical small brand. The boots arrive in a sweet little reusable cotton bag instead of in a shoebox to reduce packaging and waste. As a company, they donate 10% of net profit from online sales to the Trussell Trust whose food banks help people in need across the UK. Customers can also enter the name of their child’s school at the checkout for a further 10% of the brand’s net profit to be donated to the school.

Squelch Wellies and socks

Squelch wellies are available in children’s sizes from 5 to 11.5. The sizes come up quite large, my two both wear size 11 to 12 and the 11.5 fits nicely with some growing room. The socks come in two sizes – Tots Squelch socks for 1-2 years and Minis Squelch socks for 3-6 years. That said, Libby is nearly 8 and the largest size of wellies and socks both fit her fine. She does have quite small feet for her age. The wellies themselves seem to be lovely quality and Libby was particularly gushing about the grip. For an adventurous child, this is all important.

There are some lovely socks available in various different colours and patterns. We chose some rainbow socks and some colouring socks. The girls loved colouring in the stars on their colouring socks. Washable fabric pens are included with these ones.

Socks for adults and sparkly wellies for kids

My only complaint about Squelch Wellies is that their boots only go up to a children’s size 11.5. As well as the clear wellies in this size, they now also make sparkly boots in the same sizes. I’d love to see both larger children’s boots and adult ones. I would definitely wear them.

I’d be even more inclined to wear see-through boots now that Squelch make beautiful welly socks for adults. The knee-length socks come in various patterns including rainbows, flowers, birds and dragonflies.
