You know those memes of toilet cubicles where the stall door has been placed so high that anyone entering the bathroom can see the actual toilet seat? Or where a supermarket shelf of spaghetti has been labelled ‘shoelaces’? Or where the 2 halves of a billboard have been switched so the recumbent model’s head is jutting into her cut-off waist? You know, the memes emblazoned with ‘You had one job!‘?
These Hunter “wellies” (and I’m doing air-quotes in the most sarcastic slo-mo) are an embodiment of that.
Hunter heeled wellingtons. Mind-bogglingly, £135. Even more mind-bogglingly, sold out online.
They fail on their very raison d’être, which is to equip the wearer for rain-slicked streets and muddy fields. They look like they’re appropriate for catfishing in the sense of sitting at a computer/being a weirdo shut-in and wheedling people into fake Internet relationships (other appropriate garb would include the Snuggie and maybe a fedora). But inappropriate for catfishing in the sense of fishing for catfish. Outdoors.
Honestly, it’s as bad as when they started lining Crocs with fleece, which defeated their sole advantage; of being dishwasher-safe.
