So the weather around here has been craptastic lately. I don’t have a pair of snow/rain boots, so I decided to go in search of some. My shopping buddy, Cher, was back home in Chicago at the time, so I sent her photos of the boots I was trying on (these were taken with my cell phone, so ignore the poor quality):
It took me a while to decide. Mostly because the moto-style black wellies reminded me of the boots the old guy wears in Home Alone. You know what I’m talking about. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find a picture 😦
Anyway, it came down to the shiny quilted black pair and the dull moto-style boots. I ended up choosing the moto-style pair, mostly because they looked like rain boots to me. I was afraid the quilted pair would look stupid in the spring.
They’re really cool- they’ve got a red inside, which I like, plus they fit my jeans, if I need to tuck them in.
