Continuing with my rain blog from yesterday, I needed boots for all this rain. I got new boots and I'm pretty excited about it. Since we moved to California from Canada I lost my rubber boots somewhere. I hadn't replaced them because frankly it hardly ever rains here. But it's been raining more and I wanted to not have to do the tip toe thing around outside so we were off to find rain boots today. It wasn't easy, I don't know how many stores I went into only to find Large, x-large or above size 10 left. I take a 5.5 or 6 so obviously most of the kids around had scooped up my boots.
I finally found some at Greenthumb nursery where my hubby suggested we check out. I have to tell you that what I found I was very excited about. There they were, after umpteen trips in and out of stores with no boots in hand, I had found them. And not only had I found them but they had my name written all over them.
I got these Holey Coastal boots. They don't go up as high as a normal rubber boot but I'm not splashing around in deep puddles, just shallow ones. I love walking in the water and mud and not worrying about it. I hate it when I step in a puddle in my runners and it seeps through the sides slowly drenching my feet. These are sort of Crocish I guess you could say but man are they comfortable. And as soon as I saw them I thought about the walks I take in the early morning as well, returning with soaking feet.
These are very comfortable and have a great sole. Of course it was the paw prints that caught my eye. When we went into the store I saw them immediately. My husband said "hey Sher, check these out" but I already had a pair in my hands. Like I said they had my name written all over them. Dog walking shoes, how great.
I'm a utility gear gal, I love anything that makes my life outdoors or with dogs easier. And these fit that description to a T.
