With all the rain pouring from Rome’s skies, rain boots have turned into a “must-have” for female students around the Hill. Say good-bye to the days when solid rain boots simply existed to “get the job done” and get use to seeing fashionable rainwear on campus. Students are seeing more and more unique rain boots in plaid, polka dots, flowers and just about any other pattern possible.
“I love my rain boots because I can look cute while it’s gloomy outside,” said Jade Colwell, sophomore psychology major. “It brings a little excitement for the rainy day.”
Colwell found her rain boots on Pinterest and recently received them as a Christmas surprise. Colwell is not the only one who prefers online rain boot shopping. Caitlyn Cook, sophomore nursing major, bought her fashionable rain boots online.
“I absolutely love them. I can jump in puddles, and my feet don’t get wet,” said Cook.
Rain boots are not just a fashion trend, but come in handy during the stormy seasons. Ladies around the Hill have found them to be a win-win siuation.
