Here at Shoe Zone, we like to hear about the good work that others are doing for the less fortunate in other parts of the world and this particular story was especially interesting to us and reminded us that we should never take having access to footwear for granted.
Many children in Morocco are having to rely on used pairs of wellington boots in order to get to school everyday with dry feet. A charity named Baraka Community Partnerships, which is based in Shepperton (a village based in the town of Spelthorn, Surrey) has been relying on the help of a 47 year old local lady who goes by the name of Mrs Ridgeway to collect wellington boots on behalf of the charity. She recently visited one of the projects in Morocco with her husband and daughter and realised that the children had to walk miles to get to school and sometimes in torrential rain. She tries to do something every year for the charity and this year it was “welly collecting”. Let’s hope the Moroccan children get to use their brightly pattered and appropriately designed wellies that the children from the Littleton C of E School have kindly donated.
If you fancy keeping your feet dry and protected form the torrential English weather conditions this year, you are lucky enough to be able to take a trip to Shoe Zone in order to purchase your perfect pair of wellington boots. We have many different styles and designs of cheap wellies for women, men and older children in store and online which are suitable for all outdoor activities such as walking, gardening, playing and getting about in the snow and even for wearing en route to work, when the rain is pouring.
We think it is almost impossible for anyone to live without a good pair of wellies which is why we have made our prices so affordable. They start at around as little as £7.99 for a basic plain pair of boots and go up to a very reasonable £14.99 for our more luxurious and fancy pairs of boots.
The sizes of our wellies vary depending on the style that you choose: some of them start at a size 3 and others at a size 7 and one of the main attractions of Shoe Zone wellies for women all around the UK is the fact that we cater for bigger calf sizes.
