This is the first pair of rain boots I have bought during my adult life. Seriously. The last pair I owned were probably a pair of ducky rain boots in yellow or red. For some reason or another, I've always been petrified of them. As a 5'6 girl with size 8.5-9 feet and the ankles of a small boy, I've felt that my feet were too large for my body. My mom, who is relatively the same height and size as me, has perfect size 7 feet and I was always so envious of her well proportioned-ness! Where did my fear of rain boots come into play? I thought they would make my feet look even larger. Skip to me in the downtown Town Shoes location, hearing hallelujah in my head, as I slipped my size 8.5 feet into a size 7 rain boot. Oh, yes indeedy.
The moral of the story? These boots make my feet look smaller than they actually are. I guess rain boots are normally slightly over sized, which thrills me to no end. I still have a little wiggle room, and plenty of space to wear a thick sock, and am feeling overjoyed in my size 7 pair of waterproofed luxury boots from Däv. If you're thinking of checking them out, I encourage you to look at this pair and this pair, as they're also next on my list!
