THE TELL : We had a record snowfall yesterday – almost 30″(still can’t get out of our driveway!). So, when deciding what to post for SHOE AND TELL these fabulous Aquatalia waterproof, red patent leather boots with double side zippers immediately came to mind. I purchased these boots almost ten years ago for a trip to France, where it rains so often. I needed a pair of warm, comfortable, waterproof, and ofcourse stylish boots that I could walk in all day…
I came across the shoe company Aquatalia in my search for a qualilty boot and looked no further. Aquatalia, made in Italy, footwear is described as functional luxury. They were the first company to offer a waterproof boot that didn’t look like a waterproof boot. Today there are several companies that offer stylish waterproof footwear.
It can sometimes be tricky to look stylish while battling the weather elements, but today you don’t have to compromise between style and function – You can have it all in one shoe. These boots are definitely an investment piece, but well worth it. As you can see, mine still look new.
(Just a side note, there is a big difference between waterproof and water-resistant… Water-resistant footwear just repels the water, and so your feet often get wet and stay wet. Waterproof footwear is made of a material that does not allow water to sink into the fibers and so your feet stay cozy and dry.)
