Everyday Pioneers

Nothing says British heritage like Hunter's Original Wellington boots.
First launched over 50 years ago, this iconic style is now as much of a style essential as it is a country classic. Wear yours for weekends in the country, pavement-pounding in the city, or do like the style set and make them the focus of your festival look.



Hunter was born in an era of discovery, out of a passion to innovate. As we celebrate today's 'Everyday Pioneers', we want to hear from you on what makes a Pioneer. To be in with a chance of winning one of several pairs of Hunter Original or Balmoral Wellington boots, get involved via:


We take you behind the scenes on our recent campaign shoot for the Balmoral boot. The country agrees, as six of the UK's finest gamekeepers feature in the images shot against some of Scotland's most extraordinary landscape.

Hunter was born out of a passion to innovate and a thirst for discovery. We introduce a new series celebrating 'Everyday Pioneers'. From the Highlands to inner-city London, from Manhattan to rural Germany, we follow the journeys of today's adventurers.

Kicking off, we go back to basics with 7th Rise in Cornwall. Thom, a self-proclaimed 'man of the wild' is a modern day adventurer. He runs 7th Rise, offering epic adventures in the great outdoors - foraging, hunting and wild food cookery. A back to basics, no nonsense approach, celebrating the very best of the natural environment.

An interview with Steven Cree

What attracted you to this project?

The creative team behind the film were instrumental for me. It was great to work with a team from such diverse backgrounds and to work with James Cosmo.

Do you see yourself as a pioneer?

I've certainly ventured into territory unknown to me, but whether that makes me a pioneer or not is debatable.

What makes a modern pioneer?

Someone who pushes beyond the realms of conventionality and goes where no one has gone before in their chosen field. A great example is Pixar.

What inspires your sense of adventure?

Being a Kilmarnock Football club fan!

What's been your best personal adventure?

Walking down Sauciehall Street in Glasgow on a Saturday night. An experience in itself. Plus climbing a snow covered Buachaille Etive Mor, which is where we shot the film. Both scary and exhilarating.

What would be in your survival kit if you were lost in the wilderness?

Bear Grylls!

Do you have a favourite place to wander?

My mind. Otherwise, nothing quite beats the drama of the Scottish landscape. Particularly where we shot the film.

Do you see yourself as a city or country person?

Neither. I enjoy both equally. Growing up in Scotland gives you a taste for both.

When you are out in the field, you need comfortable, functionally excellent footwear and the Balmoral Collection from Hunter offers all this and more. Technically advanced linings, outsoles and construction provide extra support, warmth and comfort in all weathers and across a multitude of terrains.
