OK, these might just be the best Wellington boots ever. Ever
Well, OK, these and the Louis Vuitton heeled rain boots I wrote about last year, and would still totally buy if they miraculously went on sale for, like, £50, as opposed to however-many-hundred they actually cost.
And, look, I know: a lot of you think that high-heeled Wellies are just the last word in ridiculous. Who on earth would be vain enough to want high heeled rain boots, you wonder, when rain boots are designed for purely practical purposes? Well, I’ll tell you who would want them: this girl would. I don’t wear rubber boots to muck out cattle or plod through the countryside up to my ears in mud, you see. I wear them to walk in the rain. On pavements. These ones are the perfect shade of Shoeperhero red: they have a high heel, a fabulous shape, and they’re completely waterproof, so they won’t get ruined in the rain. They don’t even look like Wellington boots, actually, so my main problem would be trying to stop myself wearing them when it was totally dry out.
Actually, I lie. My main problem would be justifying spending £688 on wellies. And you know what? I just couldn’t do it. Not even for the best Wellington boots ever. I can justify a high heel on a rain boot, you see, but not an almost £700 price tag.
I do want them, though.
