Puddle Jumpers

Yesterday at lunchtime, I overheard some coworkers discussing the impending rain and realized I was screwed in suede boots. So I gambled with Mother Nature and ran to Macy's Herald Square in suede, hoping to return in waterproof rubber. Macy's, I figured, would not let me down. And I was right.

Get down there quick (women's shoes, 5th floor, full of rain boot shoppers) to pick up these CougarSport yellow Flyers, for $30 (50% off). They also come in a pretty matte red, but not in size 9. I was reluctant to buy yellow, that traditional grade-school color, but once on my feet I fell for them like a 5-year old; I was even disappointed it wasn't raining when I woke up this morning.

Thanks to a removable arch support, these rain boots are so comfortable you won't want to take them off. The wedge heel is chic enough to set you apart from that kindergartner splashing in puddles, but not so high you'll teeter. Black buckles, too, are a nice touch.
