Skellerup Pink Band gumboots

Pink Band gumboots return for 2022!

After a very successful launch in 2021, Skellerup Industries Ltd  are once again supporting Breast Cancer Foundation NZ (BCFNZ) by donating five dollars from every pair of gumboots and $1 from every pair of socks to BCFNZ. Made in exactly the same way as traditional Red Bands, the gumboots feature a pink trim and the BCFNZ logo on the side. The socks are also made from the same merino blend as our traditional gumboot socks, with pink detailing. These special edition gumboots and socks will only be available while stocks last. 

Why we’re supporting Breast Cancer Foundation NZ

Nine New Zealanders are diagnosed with breast cancer each day, a third of which live outside the main centres. In rural communities it’s more complicated to access treatment and take time off farm which is why Skellerup is supporting BCFNZ to help raise awareness of the disease.

The impact of breast screening being paused during Covid-19 lockdowns means rural women may find it harder to access life-saving mammograms. Patients in rural communities are more likely to choose radical surgical options (i.e. mastectomy rather than breast-conserving surgery), generally because radiation therapy is largely available in the main centres and for most patients requires daily treatment for at least three weeks. The realities of farm life mean it’s not always possible for rural patients to take weeks (or months) off to receive treatment.

Where can I buy Pink Band gumboots?

They are available from Monday 2nd May 2022, exclusively from Farmlands, Farm Source and PGG Wrightson but only while stocks last. Find your nearest store on our Where to Buy page.

If they sell out will you make more?

Unfortunately, no. Pink Band gumboots are not a new product, they are special edition product to help raise awareness of breast cancer in rural communities.
