So it has been a bit rainy and wet where I live (Boston) for a few days, and for the next few days looks like it will hold up. So I am thinking that I could use a nice set of boots for the rain. Ideally this would not exceed $300, but I could go up a little if I really like them. Cheaper is good too if the quality is not compromised. I’d consider shoes but those are harder to get a good fit for me, so they would need to be available locally or have a good return policy. My current collection of nice boots are all leather soled. So those are not good for rain. My old shoes, before I started getting nice ones are all wearing out. This sort of threw a wrench into my plans to branch out into nicer non-boots, ideally with a leather sole, but hopefully I can afford both if I stop buy scotch for a bit. Anyway we were having such a nice drought, I was hoping I would be able to wear the nice ones all month.
