I'm a big Hunter boots fan, but they don't love me back (too tall for a shortie like me). Plus I'm cheap and
Hunter boots are not. And living in a city, I have about this => <= many opportunities to actually wear rain boots. Because I am so not one of those people who can pull off wearing rain boots "just because."
So I have one pair of rain boots and they actually get worn more often as work boots on the farm - except then I get made fun of for wearing bright red boots instead of the standard big utilitarian black rubber boots. I really just get no love for red boots apparently.
But if red rain boots are good enough for Paddington, then they are good enough for me. And ones that fit me in the calves and aren't too tall for me (plus they're cheap) are even better. So on a dreary wet city day, I dare to go clopping around in red rubber and may have even found myself a few puddles.
