A Find: Sashay through the Showers in these Stylish Rain Boots
October 27, 2006
In the past, when it rained, my feet got wet. I am vain. Therefore I refuse to succumb to saccharine cute rain boots or Wellingtons that make me look like an overgrown 5 year old. I want to look put together and keep my socks dry â€“ and I certainly donâ€™t want to drench my Jimmy Choos. Thankfully, Sweden based Tretorn saw a hole in the market and launched a new line of rubber boots that donâ€™t scream â€œIâ€™m only dressing this way because the weather sucks.â€ The Plask, with a 2-inch wedge heel and sexy slim profile is perfect for tucking those skinny jeans (bonus: no wet hems!). The boots drew envious glances from gals on the street as I stomped through puddles and indoors, as I made the trek from bar to bathroom.
Want a second opinion? Check-out this review from zappos.com â€œComfort AND Fashion in one boot! Not only do I get to wear heels in the rain, I don’t feel like I’m taking my life in my hands by doing it. These absolutely are waterproof, and the gummy heel and sole feel completely stable splashing through puddles. Elastic side panels make the fit forgiving.â€
