Foul Weather Wear, New York

It was almost 70 degrees last Wednesday and then snowed on Thursday and Friday! Saturday and Sunday New York was like a giant 7-11 Slushy.

The one thing I kept seeing over and over this weekend were these colorful rubber boots.

I’m guessing they are Marc by Marc Jacobs because he was selling them for $35 and this photo was taken just down the street from his Bleecker Street store.

    They are! I borrowed my boyfriend’s pair, they’re great. Marc jacobs has the best eye for color.

    A giant slushie is well put and also extremely visual. Gross. What I hate is all the salt which then transfers onto you and leaves oh so unattractive stains on your trousers/jeans/shoes.

    Well, this is a relief to see that even NY women (they of short coats, black tights and teering heels) wear sensible (albeit stylish) footwear on slushy city streets…

    being from california, i don’t understand how these work (although i wish i had a reason to use them.) Do you just bring an extra pair of shoes to wear once you’re indoors? this seems obvious… but it doesn’t look like any of those women are carrying an extra pair of shoes.

    sorry, pardon my californian ignorance. :)

    A few responses. Crocs are never cute–they’re gimmicks. On wearing Wellies…people just wear them around in my office.

    Second post. I’d buy a pair of wellies. But, I’m looking for the perfect pair with a print on them. Sofar, J.Crew has won my heart over.. Although, Marc for that price??

    I wear mine to work, and I keep a pair of flats at the office so I can change into them. My wellies are great at keeping out snow but they are rather heavy to spend a day walking in them.

    Wow! Iwish i had a pair of these-although in Greece, it is a rare occasion one has to wear wellies.

    I got a pair of these on vacation in January and brought them home to Seattle. They are perfect for the rainy winter (and spring, and fall…), plus at $35 how can you resist?!?

    What a deal! I am stopping by there tomorrow to see if I can catch a pair. Nice.

    I love the color matchs. Personally, I don’t like pattered rainboots, so solid colors are great.

    I love this picture, Sart! I love wearing my Wellingtons too but as a Brit maybe it’s unavoidable. I’ve had a pair on hand ever since I can remember.

    They may not be Marc but has anyone else seen the $20 wellies online at Target? They seem to have a slew of fun colors and prints (seriously, like 60 different ones) that are tempting me to get a new pair. All this color suddenly makes my traditional green wellies seem so somber.

    The gray one is awesome! I wished I had one of those nice looking wellies cos back in Malaysia, there’re rainy season and thunderstorm, which will wet my shoes and I HATE it! Btw I thk we couldn’t get $35 for a pair Marc here. Sounds.. ridiculous :p
