Rain boots are like sports gear to me. I might not necessarily wish to be engaged in the action they were made for, but I love wearing them nonetheless. Other examples include tennis skirts, riding breeches and–truth–cycling jackets. Hell, I’d wear my golf shoes every day if they didn’t have metal cleats on their soles.
As we wait for the rain to leave, I’ve rounded up some covetable waterproofers.
