Save for the once-in-a-blue-moon apocalyptic thunderstorm, epic snowfall, or random hurricane (remember that, NYC folks?), we don't really have occasion to pull out the big guns, when it comes to rain boots. And really, even in those cases, there's always someone willing to deliver us some food to tide us over until the sun comes out again.
So, what we're saying is this: We like to keep our tootsies dry, but since we're not really slopping through mud or fording streams on our way to work, we're much more partial to a lower-profile boot that doesn't get in the way of our day-to-day job. Enter, Hunter's Chelsea boot. We already know that the Wellie brand has the grit to get us through the wettest of days, and its newest boot offering is just the ticket for us city-slicker gals.
With a stretchy elastic side panel for easy slip-on access and an ankle boot shape, these babies offer the style of our favorite fall booties and the durability of a rain boot — something that promises to make dreary winter days all the more bearable.
Hunter Bradwell Boot, $115, available at Hunter.
