Are rain boots okay for men or should we stick to Duck boots?






Forgive the copypasta

If it's for functional purposes, why not? If it's a sunny, dry day like in the pics above, I don't see the point.

@jet - I mean, would anyone really wear rain boots when it's not raining? It's like wearing running shoes when you're not running. Good point though, it got me thinking.

I think the boots the gentlemen are wearing in the last picture look very nice, by the way.

I'd say go for it. When there is every a serious downpour stirring I go to mine as the main footwear choice. If you are in a office environment though galoshes would be a better pick.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
