behold, the kitten heel rain boot, which i assumed was an urban myth, having only seen them in colorful neglected heaps in filene's basement. but no, i saw a pair ON A PERSON yesterday, along with other various incarnations of heeled and wedged rain boots, which all, as far as i could tell, caused their owners to shuffle uncomfortably down the sidewalks with a familiar look on their faces: please don't let me fall, please don't let me fall.
i am all for making concessions for fashion, but in my opinion, if there is ANY shoe you should buy for function, it is a rain boot. take this pair for example:the hunter rain boot: my perfect inclement weather boot. they come all the way up to the knee, come in lots of fun colors (check them out at zappos), and you can tell they have a WICKED tread, to prevent unfortunate incidents like what happened to my roommate two days ago.
plus, you can buy matching (or contrasting, whichever your aesthetic preference) wellie socks!
how cool is that? not that i would buy them because they're $40 and i rock my own knee socks from sock dreams, but i support the concept nevertheless.
p.s. that color combination could totally be rocked at work because it matches our logo:
