Rain boots are a highly practical necessity for your wardrobe. Especially If you live somewhere with a lot of rain or snow. But did you also know that they can make your outfit? Hey, maybe there are even some things you didn’t know about rain boots!
Here are a couple of things you may not have known or even thought about.
You’re probably thinking of rain boots as the only shoes you need on a rainy day, but they also work great in the snow. Snow can seep into your normal shoes and make it that much harder to get around without getting soaked through by slush or puddles.
Your rain boots are waterproof, so your feet stay dry even when trudging through the snow.
Rain boots are usually only available in shades of yellow, green, or red. However, there is a whole rainbow of colors you can choose from today! Boots are made to match the latest fashion fads and provide more options for people who want to stay on-trend.
Rain boots are perfect for people who want to keep it casual but don’t want to wear just plain sneakers or flats on a rainy day. Not only will rain boots match practically any style of shoe, but they come in many colors and patterns as well. Doesn’t matter if you prefer flats, sandals, wedges, or heels: rain boots can be worn with it all.
You don’t have to worry about wearing uncomfortable shoes when you want to stay dry and trendy on a rainy day. Unlike many other types of footwear, such as high heels, rain boots do not force you to walk or stand in an uncomfortable way that’s not good for your feet. This is because rain boots are designed with a flat sole inside, to allow you to walk naturally without forcing your body into strange positions.
Rain boots are like any other shoe or garment that you may own – they need to be taken care of properly in order for them to last.
To keep your waterproof, rubber footwear looking new and chic, clean them regularly with a damp cloth and let them dry before putting them away. In addition, protect the soles from wearing out by using some sandpaper to remove the worn parts of the rubber.
A new pair of well-fitting rain boots should feel like socks when you first try them on because they will stretch over time as you wear them more often
When rain boots stretch out, you need to purchase a new pair. This is because the boots cannot stretch back into shape and you can cause serious damage to your feet if you wear them when they’ve stretched out too much.
These super practical boots are actually named Wellington boots, and they were invented in the 1800s. The word ‘Wellington’ is actually the name of the Duke of Wellington, the name ‘Wellington’ came from the duke himself. The Duke was known for wearing boots to attend battle, and his emblem became the symbol of these weatherproof boots.
In The United Kingdom, they have shortened it to ‘Welly Boots’ to give it a local touch.
Rain boots are also sometimes referred to as galoshes. This is because they were first patented under the name galoshes by a man named Charles Goodyear Jr.
However, rain boots don’t just refer to boots at all, they actually refer to rubber boots that you wear over your shoes and lower pant leg to protect them from water and other elements.
Most people just call them rain boots nowadays because it’s easier.
Not only are these little foot angels extremely useful, practical, and fashionable; but they also have a significant cultural history behind them. I mean, who doesn’t love a good pair of rain boots?
Rain boots have been around for a long time and although they have never been extremely popular, they have been making their mark on history ever since the 1800s.
The first style of rubber boot was given to Queen Victoria in 1886 by Sir Harry Linder for her to wear while on a rainy day.
So next time you get caught in the rain and want to be dry, don’t forget that little angel who is making sure your feet stay dry.
