The Wellington boot, also known as a wellie, a topboot, a gumboot, or a rubber boot, is a type of boot based upon Hessian boots. It was worn and popularised by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington and fashionable among the British aristocracy in the early 19th century.

Though most commonly called gumboots, an alternative name "Blucher Boot" is occasionally heard there, used by some older Australians. Gummies is also a nickname used.
