Fashion Math: Are $100 Rain Boots Worth The Splurge?

January 12, 2010 by Jeanine Edwards

We’ll be the first to admit rain boots are not the sexiest shoes to wear. They’re big, bulky and hide all the results of those intense leg workouts you do at the gym everyday. But like them or not, waterproof rain boots serve a very practical purpose: keeping feet dry in nasty, wet conditions. Invest in a good pair whose soles have traction and they’ll help prevent falls, too. Hunter is pretty much the best you can get. The brand has been around since the 19th century and for good reason—their boots not only keep moisture out, but also last a really long time. We love them for the quality, but also for all the pretty colors they come in like purple, pink and silver. The original tall boot retails for $115, which wouldn’t be that bad if this were a shoe you could wear every day, but they make quite a splash.

Behold our Fashion Math equation:

According to the MyForecast.com Almanac, states in the Northeast get around 10 days of precipitation each month. Wear these rain boots every time it rains or snow for one year-that’s about 120 times-and you’ll be paying less than one dollar every time you pull them on. That’s cheaper than a lotto ticket, and you’re guaranteed to get something every time-dry feet!
