About this deal

The company originally discovered a gap in the market for lighter, more durable and comfortable Non-Safety & Safety Wellingtons, before moving into garden/consumer outdoor wellington boots. Rot resistant: Seawater, oil, acid and alkali durable; antibacterial, safe, odorless and non-polluting. A new name in wellington boots is helping to drive year-round sales, whilst also showcasing new material innovation to mix up the gardener’s favourite footwear category. Introducing Leon Boots Co Ltd – the name behind the all-new ‘revolutionary’ ULTRALIGHT™ garden ankle boot, the lightest and most comfortable wellington boot to ever hit the UK market.

Drawing on over a decade of expertise within the outdoor footwear sector, Leon Boots Co. has brought to market a material which enables the company to create ULTRALIGHT™ wellington boots that are up to 65% lighter than traditional boots. Manufactured from award-winning, injection moulded EVA/TRC polymer, a pair of Leon Boots Co. boots can weigh as little as 219g – that’s the same weight as an adult hamster! One thing that surprised us both, is just how light these wellies are. Of course, they are going to be lighter as they aren’t full-length boots, but even so, when they were delivered we couldn’t quite believe there were two pairs of boots inside. As the name suggests, these boots are indeed super light! Leon Boots Co., has been created to shake up the wellington boot category, bringing new colours, designs and unique characteristics to help drive year-round sales and maximising vital gifting potential. To date, the Leon Boots Co. offering has found its home within forty UK garden centres, with further expansion earmarked following the launch of the new garden ankle boot collection. The brand was established in 2016 just outside Dublin and was first introduced in the UK two years later by UK Director Kevin Burgess and his son, Charlie Burgess.

Since its launch Leon Boots Co. has won a number of industry awards including Product of the Year at Four Oaks, an Innovation Award at Dairy-Tech, and most outstanding in Construction Footwear 2020.

Kevin Burgess, UK Director at Leon Boots Co., said: “We are an exceptionally proud family business that is passionate about bringing to market products that challenge the norm and delight consumers, and we truly believe that our new garden ankle boot will open up new sales opportunities for retailers. The price point – up to 60% cheaper than the leading brands – will make our range much more accessible to shoppers and will open up the gifting potential of this popular footwear style. More than this, retailers can also arm themselves with some great customer communication fodder. It’s not until you touch, feel and wear the boots that you really understand just how light they really are. This is something that retailers can generate conversation about, inviting customers to come try them for themselves. It’s a unique talking point, and one we know works. We’re excited for more garden centres to join in!” Tread of course is also important on wellies, no one wants to fall flat on their arse after slipping in mud or on wet grass, and whilst the tread isn’t super deep, we’ve both found it sufficient for our needs.
