Closed – Congrats to the winner, sweetsue!
What kind of kicks do you wear when it rains? Usually I forget about trying to look good, and just wear a pair of old shoes that I don’t care about. But if it happens to be a day when I can’t get away with dressing in yoga pants and sneakers – like when I have to work or attend a fancy event – I have very few options. This is the reason why I’ve ruined countless pairs of shoes by walking in the rain and dashing through the sometimes unavoidable rain puddles. It’s all downhill once the water gets inside your shoes.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could morph high fashion footwear with the rain boot? Well you don’t have to, because däv has already done it. The company is based in southern Calfornia, where the luxurious made-for-rain footwear is designed, produced and sold. There are all kinds of styles offered; from flats to dress shoes boots. It’s practical footwear in disguise.
I haven’t worn rain boots since I was a kid. From what I remember, they looked a lot more like galoshes than fine footwear. Perhaps that’s why I never wore them past grade three. They certainly never alookednything even close to the däv equestrian boots I was sent. I love the classic riding style of these boots, they’re fashionable while being waterproof. They also feature a fleece lining to keep your legs and calves warm and dry. This is excellent for rain on a cold fall or winter day. They’re so warm,you could even make them work for snowy weather.
There is a stretch panel for a fit that is close to the leg, as well as a spur holder at the back. Where’s my horse? Seriously though, these boots are great because they don’t look like rain boots. If I wore them on a sunny day, no one would even notice that they were any different.
Personally, I found the stretch panel to be slightly tight on my calves. Unfortunately, my legs are not small there. I think if I give them time to break in, they’ll fit more comfortably. Otherwise they feel great, even without wearing socks because of the comfy fleece lining.
Rain boots have certainly come a long way since my childhood.
