With the foot of snow on the ground and Fashion Week starting today, we made a mad dash yesterday to buy a pair of Hunter Wellies. For the uninitiated, Hunters are rubber boots that were originally designed for soldiers in World War I who were fighting in flooded trenches —and have become the fave boot of NYCers on rainy, slushy or snowy days. We're admittedly late to the Hunter party, which is probably why every website we checked was out sold out in our size. We couldn't even find a knock off to fit our size 7 foot.
Enter the Jimmy Choo Hunter Boot. At $395, it's close to four times the cost of the original, but with that crocodile print we would be sure to impress even the most discerning of door men or clip board Nazi. Plus, they have them in our size. Available at Jimmy Choo.com.
If you're in NYC tonight, catch Tamara Mellon at Saks from 5 to 6 pm.
