You may be surprised to hear, but I've never owned a pair of traditional rain boots. Yes, I'm from the Pacific Northwest and yes it rains here, but funny enough I don't own any. I'm also the girl who has way too many coats without hoods. It's just my way.
If you're looking for an alternative to rain boots, I have the shoes for you.
You don't have to buy these shoes, but if you fall in love with a pair of patent leather boots just remember they keep you stylish in the rain too.
