I did an interview today about rainboots and if it's a trend, details about it, etc.

Just wanted to see what people thought about them, if they're a trend, not, if you love it, hate it, etc

Rainboots are NOT a fad if you ask me. I walk 4 blocks to my office and when it rains I ALWAYS donmy Polo rainboots (Mine are fuchsia). They have saved many pairs of expensive shoes. I personally wear them with skirts and dresses mostly, but occasionally with slacks. I of course change into heels at the office.

Here are some suggestions.
1) Polo - about $69
2) Target - $25
3) Marc by Marc Jacobs - About $100

UGH, they've got all the knock off Pucci rainboots around here; f^cking knockoffs!!

i'm so glad i didn't spend $125 on a pair myself, now that every girl and her dog is going to have a pair of cheap $15 ones....

As you know I personally chose the polo rainboots (fuchsia) and I love them, but...I have recently seen a LOT of other very colorful rainboots (I may have to get yet ANOTHER pair....they are so much fun to wear!) SO...thanks for some of the suggestions other have made...but....here are a few more. (Saw them at Zappos)

so i was walking through Manhattan
and i saw this girl wearing her blue jeans tucked into a pair of really nice looking green color rain boots and i thought man i want a pair

she was on the other side of the street so didn't ask her
what brand they were but yeah it's raining right now
and i think a nice pair of rainboots would come in handy right about now.

They might have been the Hunter Wellingtons? I see girls wearing them with tights or tucked in pants all the time around New York. They are simple and sturdy, but pricey.

Is that what they call them in America, 'Rainboots'. I suppose that makes more sense than wellies, but still i was excepting some weird rainbow coloured boots
But they're not really comfortable to wear, at all
