Hunter boots have a long history dating back to the 19th century. Originally designed by Henry Lee Norris in Scotland in 1856, they were initially intended to meet the needs of people working in the Scottish countryside. Over time, Hunter boots became well-known for their sturdy construction and their ability to withstand the tough Scottish climate. During World War I, Hunter boots were used by British soldiers to cope with the harsh conditions in the trenches. Their popularity further increased when they became part of the official uniform of the British Army during World War II.
