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+.
