Rain-NO, rain boots- YES! Nobody says rain boots should be worn exceptionally in rainy weather, they are also appropriate when you are walking in muddy place, or in a forest having a picnic or being by the lake- like I did. Doesn't it feels good to step wherever without thinking of ruining expensive shoes ? :)
Talking in particular about my pair- they came to me straight from Canada. Their advantage is that thankfully to inserted fabric(not fully made from rubber) they look more representative which makes them go good with a dress and other feminine stuff.
And also I must add, Burberry rain boots -this is classic! And a every season must have.
