Found the perfect rain boots to replace my Hunters
My Hunter rain boots have seen better days and with the record breaking rainfall we had in May, it's no wonder they're on their last legs. Living in raincouver, they've stuck by me through 8 years of downpour so when they started to split, I couldn't bear the thought of not having them in my life. I was weary about finding another pair that I would love as much as my Hunters, but I did!
Quite unexpectedly too - Ingledew's shoe store is closing all its shops and a my co-worker had went during the week and found a pair of men's dress shoes at a great price. I needed a break from work and stepped out for half an hour yesterday and found the best pair of boots, EVER.
I love my Hunters and I love my UGGs but I've always wished I could cram the two together. These Stuart Weitzman rainboots are IT. They have the rubber boot base, and LINED interior THROUGHOUT the boot, as well as a cool buckle detailing; not to mention, the pebbled leather makes it easy to zip up my calf, which is a major problem area for me. Dare I say, they're even better than my Gucci rain boots, which look beautiful, but are quite stiff given they're just a slip on boot.
I actually cannot wait to have another downpour now haha.
Now that I've found these, I can properly say good-bye to my Hunters and bid them farewell. These will actually help me replace my Cole Haan Chelsea boots too when they're worn through since the pebbled leather makes it a bit less rain-bootey, and I can probably pass them as a more casual boot.
