I am sorely in need of some rain boots. Although I have been cursing myself all week for not already owning a pair, I am hoping to snag an end of the season deal. With my luck, a purchase will signal the end of the wet weather and the beginning of spring. Wait! Who am I kidding? That's a win, win either way!
I have had my eye on the original - Hunter Wellies - for a couple of seasons now.
They are perfect, in my opinion, except for the price. I can't seem the find them for cheaper than about $125.00 except for on ebay, where all of the new boots have what's called "blooming," meaning they look like they have a white circular film on them. Not nearly the deal I was hoping to snag.
I found this pair on Piperlime as well.
I am loving the herringbone and buckle details, the charcoal color, and the price: $59.99 plus free shipping. The silhouette does not seem as flattering around the ankle as the Hunter boot, but it's hard to tell without seeing them on someone.
Target has a Hunter knockoff for $24.99, but it's not getting the best reviews; there are multiple mentions of soaking wet feet, and if that is the case, then it is not really a deal.
I ran into these Tory Burch boots in the latest issue of InStyle magazine, and I am loving their playful, retro vibe:
Unfortunately, even on ebay they are more than the Hunter boots I adore, so I think they are out.
The Chooka herringbone boots might be the winner here, but I need to sleep on it. What are you wearing on your tootsies these days in this wet weather? Any recommendations for me?
