There's a shelf in my closet full of heels that only ever show up in a suitcase headed to somewhere where I don't travel from place to place primarily on foot—typically during a downpour. And here in Seattle, once the rain starts my footwear wardrobe becomes one thing and one thing only: boots. Tall boots, ankle boots, studded boots, desert boots. Anything to keep my feet dry.
So what's your take? Do you think the high-heeled rain boot is a stylish solution to this season?
Or are we Seattleites so committed to things being practical that it trumps being chic? Considering the massive popularity of the Isabela Marant hidden-wedge platform sneakers this year, are we all moving away from sky-high stilettos and into a world where function meets form in fashion?
