JW Anderson Founder and Creative Director, Jonathan Anderson took to Instagram yesterday to tease a new collaboration between his eponymous label and the heritage rainboots brand Wellipets. He posted a photo of the frog-faced clogs on his private instagram account with a simple caption reading “Milan @jw_anderson @wellipets”, as well as the video on the brand’s official account with no caption.
The UK-founded rain boots brand Wellipets is known for their mix of the traditional Wellington rain boot with the frog face. The brand came into the spotlight in the ’80s when Princess Diana dressed Prince William and Harry in the frog boots.

The designer took the popular boot design and chopped it down to the ankles while keeping the signature frog-faced toe section. The fans of the brand seems to love it, including the singer Sam Smith, Erykah Badu and Tommy Dorfman who all commented on the Instagram post.
As one of the comments reads “I’m kinda tired of stylish things. These are the ridiculous things I want right now” and we totally agree. The teaser comes just before the brand’s upcoming show at Milan Men’s Fashion Week on January 15th and we can’t wait to see the cloggs on the runway!
