It's crappy out--what shoes? - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Some things about dressing, you learn at a young age. So when sloppy weather brings salt, slush and even heavy rain to NYC, I wear my galoshes, overshoes, rubbers or whatever you call them. I keep one pair at the office, one at home. Don't think there is a lot of choice in these, so I've been wearing the Tingley ones, the storm model since as long as I can remember. Found them a bit difficult to track down when I needed to replace my last pair, but the web provided multiple vendors. (Mine actually came from Walgreens) I also found a pair of "vintage" B.F Goodrich pair that look like brown dressy wingtips when cleaning out an uncle's home upstate. I'm afraid they'll rip so wear them sparingly.

When I know it is going to rain, I would wear the old rubber-soled shoes (worn by the personnel of the Singapore Armed Forces.), but only after it has seen a lot of usage, wear and tear. Unfortunately, most of the time the rain descends without me knowing it would rain, so, I end up (sometimes) wearing better shoes, and some with really slippery leather soles, although, fortunately, I did not experience the embarrassing situation of slipping.

Tingley or slip-on version of the LL Bean Maine Shoe. If the latter, than a pair suitable shoes are at my destination. I have a pair too of old Timberland rubber soled waterproof wingtips.

My Tingleys arrived today. They seem nice. I look forward to trying them out. The box was prominently marked in several places as being from "Tingley Rubber Corporation." I'm not sure what the delivery man thought...

It's raining in DC today, and I'm wearing my Tingleys.  Best $25 I ever spent.

Yuck. Just stepped out for my Starbucks fix and saw the mess here in NYC. I think ambulance chaser hit the nail on the head. Breakout the galoshes.
