It rains way too often up here at school. Rain boots therefore are a requirement. Hunters are the boots of choice for many girls, those or some Burberry's. I try to always be a bit different, cheesy I know. Anyway I've tried multiple boots only to be disappointed. I just purchased these in black from DSW. For the low price of $40 I couldn't complain. I'll be sure to let you know how they work out for me. You can check them out for yourself here.
