When I moved to the greater Chicago area I was kind of lost. Not physically but in pretty much every other sense. It was definitely a culture shock. I’m from the country – where there are fields and woods for miles. I’m also from the quasi-south so while it gets chilly during the winter it’s rare to see 30 degree weather and below.
Chicago on the other hand – brrrr! What I’m really looking forward to is the snow. I’ve heard stories about Chicago snowfall and I’m excited, terrified, and nervous all at the same time. I’m not really sure what to expect but I do know I’ll be seeing way more snow than I ever did in Virginia or Carolina.
The thing with snow though is it melts. Not only does it melt but it leaves puddles and you know what puddles lead to – wet feet. I don’t place a lot of stock in Old Wive’s Tales and I know there’s a lot of controversy on the correlation between wet feet and getting sick but I’d rather be safe than sorry. That’s why I’m super excited to have a secret weapon in my fashion arsenal.
These weatherproof boots from dav
As you can see these aren’t your typical, ho-hum rainboots (I received these boots for review purposes.) They’re incredibly cute and ohmygosh comfortable. I’m patiently waiting for a flood so I can really test them out! In the meantime I’m settling for wearing them around town because they go with all of my night-out outfits!
I’m sure you’re wanting more details on these boots so here’s the skinny:
- The boot has a soft fabric lining and cushioned insole for all day comfort.
- They are waterproof to the top of the boot and the soft fabric lining wicks away moisture – no wet feet for you!
- They are lightweight and able to roll up to fit in your carry on luggage.
- They feature a textured rubber outsole for good traction, reducing the chance you’ll slip and/or fall.
The only downside I’ve seen to these boots is that they tend to run small. I went a half-size up (I wear a 9.5 usually so I went with a 10) and they fit perfectly! From reading reviews on various sites others have noticed the same thing so when you’re ordering your pair be sure to size up!
Speaking of ordering, you can shop directly from the dav website! If you’re looking for a different style to keep your piggies dry there are tons of fashion friendly options to choose from. Most boots are available in sizes (US) 5 – 11 and their fall line is full of winners.
