This summer I have ruined two pairs of shoes when working in our garden. The first pair was my only pair of tennis shoes that I wore while we spread manure throughout our garden. My second pair was an old pair of slip-ons that are now a permanent shade of orange from Virginia red clay. We have several pairs of shoes stacked by our kitchen door with dried mud. So you can imagine my excitement when I received a pair of rain boots for a review!
I wore my new pair of Nomad Black Paisley Puddle Rainboots into the garden this afternoon. I will have no hesitation about going into the garden after it rains. Rather than tracking mud around our kitchen, I can just rinse them off with the hose before coming inside.
I normally avoid our yard in the morning because of the dew, but now I can walk around without the insides of my shoes getting wet. I love the convenience of being able to just put them on and go.
This is actually the first pair of rain boots that I’ve ever had. Several times I’ve been stuck at outdoor events or waiting for the bus in the rain. It’s certainly not fun to have your feet soaking wet for hours. I was expecting that they would be heavy and awkward to walk in, but they are actually flexible and lightweight.
I ordered a size that I felt would accommodate enough room for thick socks. Because the boots are not insulated, I wanted to make sure I had the option to keep my feet warm with winter socks. Although they are a little large, they still fit comfortably with regular socks. They sit a few inches below my knees and there’s enough room to tuck in my jeans. There is a strap on the side that can be adjusted for thicker pairs of jeans or for different calf sizes.
I love how my rain boots are unique! They have a lot of designs to pick from so you can find something that suits your personality and color preferences.
