Loeffler Randall Rain Boots

Loeffler Randall Rain Boots
After a few false starts with Hunter Wellies (What color to get? Are they too tall? Too clunky?), I finally settled on the Loeffler Randall Rain Boots. The boot has the same cut as the LR Matilde boots, and are far sleeker and chicer than a Hunter could ever hope to be, even a Jimmy Choo version.

Hope asked why I want rain boots so desperately and if they're warm enough. Anyone who has been in NYC during a sudden downpour or after a thaw knows how treacherous the puddles that collect on the street corners can be. Their depth is deceiving--you could think you're stepping in a centimeter deep pool, only to find yourself ankle-deep in icy sludge. As for warmth, just wear a thick sock and you'll be fine. With these babies, I can splash through puddles and still look cute--make that stylish.

True confession: while I do adore the zippered version of the Loeffler Randall Rain Boots that are new for 2010, I did order last year's off eBay and saved $100+.

I'm not a fan of this style unless you have long legs and thin calves. They're a bit too chunky and shapeless for most women to pull off successfully, but hey, if you have the height to rock them... do so!

They are nice.
Have to pointout though that Hunter comes in more than two styles.
Check out Verbier, regent and Melrose.
Other brands ar to be found too:
Tretorn Plask and Nöje(plesure).
Aigle Bergen
Jeffrey Campbell
Mark Jacobs
Patric Cox
And my favorite: Kristine Vikse

Be brave and choos something off the mainstream:
