Mad About Rainboots

Rain boots, wellies, duckies... whatever you like to call them are a recent obsession of mine. Everyone seems to be wearing them lately, in bright colours and patterns, classic Hunters and Wal-Mart cheapies. Even the over 40's are getting in on the trend which I love, rain boots aren't just for the young girls anymore! The season for wellies is upon us, thanks to the above zero weather and all the melting snow, and wellies are a perfect option to save your winter boots from water damage. I personally favour the classic Hunter boots, they're timeless, comfortable, and made in tons of colours and styles, including short, tall and Hunteress for those girls who have bigger calves.

I also have a soft spot for Tretorn boots, which like Hunters come in tons of colours. Tretorns may be a shorter boot but many of them come already insulated, unlike Hunters, and have a fur or fleece lining, making them perfect for the slushy winters of Ottawa.
