I + Hunter Boots

I've got a thing for Hunter Boots. I honestly think they are the best made rain boot around. And I should know, I once bought a cute little pair made by Sperry (of deck shoe fame) and on one wet walk into work, they split and my feet and socks were soaked. Luckily Nordstrom's return policy saved me. But after that I bought my first pair of Hunters and haven't looked back since.

It was raining like crazy this morning in Chicago. I woke up to the sound of pouring rain at 5:30 this morning and it didn't let up until around 10. In light of that, I thought I'd share a few Hunters I'm lusting after right now...

If you're just getting into Hunters, may I suggest the Classic tall boot? :) I have these in black and they haven't let me down yet. For city living, it's not just for rainy days, these get me through the winter. Instead of thick snow we tend to get all the wet slush and messy, messy sidewalks. Uggs or something like that just won't cut it. Wellies are perfect in my opinion!

I think a short pair would be cute and they come in all sorts of colors. I'm liking the green.

Sometimes the finish on the classic gets a waxy look to it. This is normal and they sell a spray to help with that, but I like the newer Gloss boots they sell, very nice and shiny! I really want the graphite color. But the bright orange or green are really fun too. And, the green are on sale. That never happens!

And now, for the grand finale. The Regent collection. I love the higher angled side. Looks like a real riding boot to me. I wish they offered the plain regent in more colors, but I've only seen black and brown for now.

And the quilted. Be still my heart. If I have one splurge coming up this fall -- these may be it.

OK, I've gone on long enough with my boot ramblings. I'll settle down now -- and maybe head to just take a peek at the rain boot section in Nordstrom.... :)


  1. I've always wanted a pair but maybe with a cute pattern or something. Then I realized that they probably suit a city girl that does a bit more walking in the rain than I do. When I run from my house 3 feet to the car, it's hard to justify rain boots! Someone's gotta buy them though so it might as well be you!

  2. I absolutely love them! Especially the quilted. Makes me want the fall to be here even more so.


Comments make me feel special. Leave a little something!
