Shoes in Germany

So I've been thinking about getting some rain boots.

Saying (aka typing) this out loud (on my bloggy boo) makes me shudder. Seriously- rain boots. I'm not 4 years old. And, they shouldn't be bright yellow, right?

Well here's the logic: In Germany there's a lot of rain, and sleet and snow ect... The main thing we need in our shoes is water resistancy. I learned this the hard way. I had my (cough cough) knock-off UGGs (cough cough) when we first arrived and assumed I was on the right page... they're warm. Nope. That won't do. Those bitches just absorb every.thing. And I felt like my feet were going to fall off-- you know, from the COLD! So here's where we are: Water resistant and warm.
I was considering a pair of riding boots.

They're nice right. BUT, unfortunately peeps built like me I feel should not wear skinny jeans* and just folding up my jeans and stuffing them into the boot isn't pretty. So help me.

Yey or ney on the rain boots???

*this is my personal opinion, no offense intended!!

I wish it would let me link you directly, but look into the Tsunami rainboots that steve madden has. They are rainboots but look like riding boots.

I do say no on the yellow boots though. :)

I LOVE my teal Hunter rain boots! It's fashionable these days. I've had a pair of traditional yellow ones, too. I think Hunters are the best... comfy, warm, and the leg opening is just right. Expensive but worth it. They'll be your best friend.

Rain boots!!! I LOVE welly's and I want a pair myself. You can also buy fleece socks made especially for them that are almost like a liner.

I am not a fan of the riding boots, they are cute, but as a rider myself, I just don't get the fashion statement. My calves are also way to big to wear them and I am not a fan of those spandex jeans...


MISS YOU!!

Yay. Germany totally justifies rain boots. I've always wanted rain boots but have never lived in an area where it rains that much. I guess I shouldn't complain about that!

I have a hot pink pair of rain boots and I wear them ALL the time. You'd be surprised how often they come in handy. I'd definitely invest.

I just got a pair of Hunter rain boots for Christmas, and I must say, I LOVE THEM! I actually wish for rain so I can wear them more! Definitely worth the investment!
