LBC Boots expands range with new colours


It’s been yet another busy year for LBC Boots and Autumn will no doubt be even bigger for the UK’s lightest weight wellies! LBC Boots have expanded their most popular Lightweight Ankle Boot range with the launch of their new Autumn colours, Berry and Purple, allowing retailers more choice of Ultra-comfortable footwear.


The LBC Ultralight Ankle Boots, with an RRP of only £39.99, have been a huge success with garden centres and customers since their launch in 2021. Following the great feedback at Glee 2023 across the whole range, these new colours are set to make LBC Boots a customer favourite no matter what colour they LOVE to wear! Whether it be the more traditional green, black, and navy or the more stand out colours of yellow, fuchsia or red, the Ultralight Ankle Boots offer something for everyone.


LBC Boots love to take customer feedback on board and by popular demand have also added the addition of a men’s range to their Lightweight Ankle Boots, with an RRP of £44.99, to complement their Women’s and Kids ranges. The kids range also comes in a variety of colourful options and the lightweight material makes it perfect for kids who love to be outdoors come rain or shine. Don’t just take their word for it, here is 4-year-old Elsie who came back to see them for the second year at Gardeners World Autumn Fair, to replace her ‘favourite’ wellies she had outgrown!



The three reasons why we know you’ll love LBC Boots…


1) Ultra-lightweight: weighing only 219g, the LBC ankle boots really are the lightest wellington boot on the market today! Each boot is made from a more sustainable EVA

polymer material making it suitable for any everyday activity, from gardening to horse riding, and from walking to climbing.


2) Ultra-durable: the injection moulded design alleviates the common wear and tear issues that so often plight rubber boots made from multiple components. Polymer is 100% waterproof, split and crack resistant, making for a boot built to last. Forget the notion that heavy wellies equal quality.


3) Ultra-comfortable: the lightweight material makes them more comfortable than standard heavy wellies. They also come paired with a warm and washable liner, providing insulation up to temperatures of -30c. The socks can be removed for use in warmer weather and additional socks are available to buy separately.


Ready boxed in their 100% recyclable branded boxes, LBC Boots are the perfect go-to solution and when paired with the wide range of FREE POS showcasing their unique benefits, they are sure to be selling themselves during key gifting periods.
