Celebrating Gumboot Friday

To celebrate Gumboot Friday 2023, Merry People are donating 10% of all gumboot sales in Australia and New Zealand to the Gumboot Friday Foundation.

Gumboot Friday is a bi-annual event in New Zealand that raises funds to provide free counselling for kids in need. Every year on the  3rd of November, people all across New Zealand are encouraged to slip on their gumboots to start the conversation about young people’s mental health. 

So good news, if you’re in Australia or New Zealand and you’ve been eyeing a pair of Merry People gumboots, now is the perfect time to treat yourself and give back to a great cause at the same time.

Check out some of the best options from Merry People:


The Sunshine and Orange Tully Ankle Boot is a vibrant and fun burst of colour. With a nod to early 1990s fashion, the chunky sole and wraparound neoprene cuff makes for the ultimate boot, practical for anything.

Made from 100 percent waterproof rubber, arch support, and 100 percent vegan, the Sunshine and Orange Tully Ankle Boot is the perfect addition to any wardrobe.



The Teal and Green Tully Ankle Boot is a soft and elegant boot with a comfortable style, shape, and practicality for any activity.

The flexible neoprene lining makes the Teal and Green Tully Ankle Boot comfortable for day-to-day use, and due to it being 100 percent Water Proof, makes for the perfect footwear on rainy days.
