Retail Gazette Loves: Hunter’s hot air boot

504

To celebrate its 162nd birthday in fitting style, iconic Wellington boot brand and retailer Hunter has built a giant boot-shaped hot air balloon.

The “Original Flying Boot” has now embarked on a world tour, which will see it fly over festivals and sporting events, sometimes announced, sometimes as a 120ft tall surprise.

Starting in its home country of Scotland, the 28-part flying boot, which closely resembles Hunter’s original design, will grace the UK, Spain, Italy and Belgium with its presence, before crossing the Atlantic and touring the US.

Anyone who spots the giant boot throughout the summer can post their snaps of it to #HunterOriginal for a chance to win a prize.
