Sunday Style: Chic Rainboots

Although the Bay Area is known for fabulous weather, San Francisco has a mind of its own. One day it’ll be glorious– bright blue skies, warm sun, and not a care in the world. The next day, it’s foggy, gray, and storming like the world’s ending.

So it makes sense that us San Franciscans usually have a pair of rain boots. Back in the day, I used to have a pair of $20 American Eagle rain boots that were really quite precious, but horribly uncomfortable. They were stiff, restrictive, and bulky. Needless to say, they didn’t hang around long.

I was pretty excited. Light, simple, and black, they should match with everything, right? Wrong. In the end, I looked like I was Robin Hood. They made me look like I had elf feet. While I still have these boots (4 years later), I only wear them rarely. Surprisingly, elf feet are not my thang.

Now, I’ve fallen in lust again, with a new pair of rain boots. I believe that this pair merges the good of the two pairs mentioned above, and they’re foldable to boot (pun intended)!
