Since it's been raining here again for the past couple of days I thought I would post shoes that I'd wear out. As much as I love suede boots I hardly wear them in fear of having them ruined, they only come out on the rare occasions we have sun with wind.
The first pair are my short black rubber boots. Do you remember when SJP had a reasonable price clothing line? At the time I bought these shoes and they ended up on the bottom of my closet for years. I recently rediscovered them and now they are my go-to on rainy days. I wear them with leggings, skirts, dresses- practically everything. They keep my feet dry as I stomp through puddles and with them being rubber they have good enough traction that I won't slip and fall.
My next short boot was only purchased for $15.00. There more or less my "throw a ways", not too precious and I don't care if they get jacked up or not. I did spray them with a rain protective because I knew I would wear them in a drizzle. Most of the time I use these shoes in long car rides. They are easy to slip on and off.
I was looking for a tall rubber boot and I'm glad that I didn't pay too much money for them. I should have bought them a size up, but even then it would be hard to drive with them on. They don't have enough flex for me. I tend to wear these with leggings or jeggings and a cocoon sweater. I do love the black with bright spring flowers on them. Um, style over comfort on this one.
My last boot you have seen before here. Since they are synthetic I don't treat them as well as I should since I wear them all the time. I should just clean them up and moisturize these, that way I can enjoy them for years to come.
Now which ones am I wearing today? It should be in the late 50's with afternoon rain of almost an inch. Well here's to the wonderful spring showers and the beautiful flowers to come.
