The local planet killer

Anywhere that trad Wellies are uncool is not a place for me.

God, I come from rural Texas, and I have them. All my kids have them in sizes up from toddler. It's about manure, people!


I heard that once upon a time rain boots were pragmatic wear for everyone. I'd like to keep my feet dry when it rains too but no one makes rain boots for men anymore. It's a shame that such a simple, pragmatic garment has been appropriated as yet another competitive consumption item by overprivileged females. As if they don't have enough already.

Queen of the Weezils

Sorry - when it rains and I still need to go outside for a long while, I wear my motorcycle boots. They're all-black leather with silver details. It's the tough girl version of rain boots. Yeah, jeans tucked inside (when it rains). I flat-out refuse to own more than a dozen pair of shoes, so there's no way I'm going to get something special for rainy days.

Forgot to add: I treat the leather so that it repels water. It's not waterproof like the rain boots, but good enough for me.


There is a car commercial my husband loves – a mom with a bunch of kids are running to a car on a rainy day and there is some upbeat song on. Anyway, we asked my son (11) who goes to school with snoberbites or is that snoberbians – what do you think about this commercial. He said that it was unrealistic – because all the kids had rain boots. He said maybe you will have 1 friend that is a momma’s boy and will be forced to wear rain boot but you would never have a whole group.

Hunters have become the rainy day version of Ugghs. I agree with Cavan that it's unfortunate this practical item the Brits (who know a thing or two about rain) have been wearing forever has become the most recent 'must have' designer label for snoburbanites (and their fashionable DCista counterparts).

Love my garden rain/boots and whichever pair I wear I always get lots of comments and compliments.

Men - look into the Irish or English brands, lots of macho versions out there. Start with

Got my boots from Costco and they are cute. Didn't cost an arm and a leg either. Oh--I live way north of Snoburbia, but my kids went to school in snoburbia. So there! :P

wellies boots

My daughter just loves this kind of boots and I just bought her 4 pairs of these things but I was just wondering why.
