These past weeks, with all the rain pouring in, I always go home from work with the skin on my feet all pruny.

On really bad days, I had to walk through 3 blocks of mid-calf-deep flood just to get home.  I’m not complaining.  On the contrary, I am thankful because flood water never entered our home, we had food and water, and we’re safe.

With a new storm coming, I decided to get a pair of rain boots.  Initially, I wanted to get something from ReadyforRain.com but I couldn’t justify spending more than Php 2,000 on rain boots.

A friend told me that Tomato sells printed rain boots for 4x cheaper.  I was going to get a pair of the black and red plaid ones but the branch I went to doesn’t have it in my size.

I got these instead:

Rainboots from Tomato

It is by no means as pretty-looking as Plueys and probably not as comfortable but I’m ok with it being at least better-looking than those rubber tire-like black ones that look so gloomy.

I’m happy I now get home with dry feet.  I like it.

UPDATE – June 18, 2013: These boots are not for long walks. It hurt my feet. But for emergency rain and ankle-deep flood, I make do with it.

  1. So cute! 

    Ah, I really need to go back to the tropics. I miss the rain. I need an excuse to buy something like this. :)

  2. cool rainboots! I've always wondered why rainboots never became a trend.. they're sooo convenient and i don't think it's hard to come up with designs to prettify them.

  3. good grief, I am not really a rain boots lover but because of our sucky weather, I am forced to buy one too. =_=
