Rain Shoes

The other day when it was absolutely POURING, my mom lent me her "rain shoes" to work. And they were marvellous! It was good in the rain and it looked incredible. Here are her criterias:
  1. Made in a waterproof material- preferably in black pantent. My mom is CRAZY about it. She even made me buy school shoes in that material when I was a kid when they were so NOT the thing.
  2. They should be in a classic style, for the obvious reason that it should last you through the test of time.
  3. It should also have just a bit of height so your feet don't get drenched. (Thats why I prefer these rain shoes over flips flops, because getting dirty water from the pavement all over ones feet is just not fun)
  4. Lastly, they should be relatively cheap. After all, they are for the rain.

Now I am very inspired to get my own pair of "rain shoes," good thing patent is all over the place.

These are not exactly the classic style or anything but the platforms look GORGEOUS. And I love the color. These two are from Nine West and Marc by MJ (I know, not exactly cheap..).

Then there are these stylish wedges. With these sturdy wedge heels from Nine West and Urban Outfitters, you won't even have to worry about slipping!
I LOVE these chunky black heels from Marc by MJ and Naturalizer. They look fabulous AND they are comfortable to walk in.
Then there are the sexy classic pointy black heels. These two are from Aldo and Nine West.
For something a little bit lower, there are these cute black patent kitten heels from Moschino Cheap n Chic and Steve Madden.

Going even lower, we have these black patent flats from Sigerson Morrison and Urban Outfitters, and since your whole feet is covered in this case criteria #4 is still satisfied!

Stay stylish in the rain everyone!

What a smart idea!!! I think you would need to get closed in toe's though - otherwise water will slide under your toes (which we've all had before!!) Oh and a good non slippery sole!!

when i saw the title, i thought you were going to write about galoshes and i slightly groaned until i scrolled down =P i would think a peep toe would allow water into your foot as well...i REALLY like those marc jacob chunky heels...hmmmmmmm...i feel a slurge coming on, hehe.

Hi! I was wondering if you could do a special post on "The Devil Wears Prada". She wore so many amazing outfits in there (the clothes in there makes 50% of the movie) so I was thinking maybe you could do a close up of sorts on them. I for one would love a post on something like that.

Yay, I've been eyeing those MJ platforms. I don't even like platforns, but those, yes. It's raining right now as I post lol, very appropriate.

i too have "rain shoes" (ie. my Maud Frizon boots - its winter here now and it rains every second day!) although i really dont mind spending more on them ehehee. i too had done a post on the topic last month ( http://sofysophia.blogspot.com/2006/07/bootylicious.html) - for winter though cos its freezing cold here in sydney right now :S

well im still on the quest for the perfect pair of classic pumps. i adore those from manolo blahnik so i totally have to check them out when next time i go overseas where they actually have a manolo store!

im so with you barneys girl. my mom too made me buy those oh-so-unfashionable patent shoes for school when i was a kid! mwahaha! but now i just cant get enough of them how funny is that

also, i once read this in Vogue maybe a couple of years ago: your "rain wardrobe" should consists of patent shoes, trenchcoat and a skirt. i cannot agree enough! :)

I love every pair here that is shown! Something about patent leather that screams "Fun!" It just reminds me of the days when I was a little girl wearing my patent-leather Mary Jane's.

Oh! I apologize for not seeing that post! The movie is a must see! I haven't read the book, but my friend says the movie is actually better than the book, which is rare.

Yes, like a follow up! The clothes in there are stunning! Not just like, one shirt or one coat, but how they are put together. :D

What a cute idea - I just found some of the most killer black patent vintage spiky heels last weekend, for $10! And in pristine condition. I think they're a bit too high for rain shoes though...

you are so clever... or fashionable! I like the patent shoes but I am just afraid it wont look right with my professional wear. I guess I'll give it a try. Especially for rain, it's perfect.

I reaaly i like the first shoes with the peep toe. I can still be chic in the rain.

btw, I agree wih pearl... i would love to see your post on the devil wears prada ;-)
