I don't know about you, but I trip out when my leather boots get drenched from the rain. That's why rain boots, like the wide array from Chooka, are absolutely necessary, especially during torrential downpours. Plus, it's nice when they're stylish too. For a dash of sass, try these Dual Buckle Cheetah Boots ($60). For a subdued look, there are these Croco Riding Boots ($80). Both totally different, both traffic-stopping. There's lots more where that came from.
