Hunter Boot Ltd. is a major rubber wellington boot and footwear designer which has offices in London, Edinburgh and New York. Originally known as the North British Rubber Company, the company manufactured vulcanised rubber products for over 150 years. Besides rubber boots, the company also produces other products such as bags, socks and other related accessories, and historically has been involved in the manufacture of tyres, conveyor belts, combs, golf balls, hot water bottles and rubber flooring.

The Hunter Boot company was the oldest manufacturer of rubber boots in the UK. The ubiquitous Green Welly is its best known product, but the Argyll welly is probably its oldest. The Argyll pre-dates the war and the green welly. It has been the stalwart welly for farmers and country types for many years due to its comfort, ease of putting on and pulling off and hard wear. The Hunter green welly, now manufactured internationally, is favoured by the hunting, and has become a fashion item. The Argyll though is favoured by those who wear wellington boots day in and day out.
