Hunter’s Wellington-style rain boot has long been a year-round closet staple here in NYC, what with the sporadic rainfall and never-ending spring showers. They look endlessly chic when paired with a flowy summer dress and a fall cardigan, but they’re not exactly as tote-able as a pair of flats, so carrying them around on a day when the weather goes from rain to shine is nothing short of annoying. Traveling ladies, rejoice: Hunter Boots heard your cry and has designed a fully collapsable travel boot that transforms from a knee-high wellie to a rolled up flat, clearing up a serious about of real estate in your handbag or suitcase.
The boots, priced at $135 a pair, will come in purple, green, yellow (my fave!), red, navy and black and they’ll be available in high-end department stores like Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Lord & Taylor come December, just in time for the holiday season! Now only if they’d make a smoking slipper equipped to handle hurricanes! Oh, wait.
