Rain boots make me dream

I don’t know about you, but rain boots somehow (re-)connect me to fun childhood memories and happy feelings. When my siblings and I wore them, we were allowed to walk thru puddles. Loved that at that time, but I loved the occasional colorful rainbows even more. We also wore the rubber boots when collecting coal in one of the mining waste dumps. After the barrel was full, we were allowed to jump for the edges of the dump whole into the sand. My siblings were always looking forward to that. What I loved most about collecting coal was finding (searching) the imprints of ancient vegetation. I collected them.

Rubber boots were also a must-pack for every vacation. Still today I love walking along the beach in rubber boots on windy gray days when nobody is there. Listening to the sound of the waves and wind only interrupted once in a while from the chitchat of some seagulls sailing in the sky in circles wherever there is an upwind. The splashes of breaking waves leaving little droplets airborne. The colorful display on the drops’ surfaces when once in a while a sun ray makes it thru a gap between the gray water-loaded clouds.

It were these positive associations that made me want to try the glitter silver pair from DKSUKO.

Great design for safety

When I first hold them in my hands, I was really happy to see the anti-slip rubber sole that is designed as per tyre pattern. It gives super grip on wet surfaces. The rubber sole allows me to run to catch the campus shuttle even in heavy rain without fear of slipping. Who wants to slip and fall over 50?

I walked thru some puddles – I have to admit, I still love that – and yes, they are water-proof. While I expected that, I nevertheless had to test it. Once a scientist, always a scientist. 😉

Despite climatology says that the first flurries can fly in mid September here in the Interior, we haven’t had them yet this year. While I won’t complain about it, it means I couldn’t test the performance on snow (yet). But I can tell you that these tall stylish boots worked well on the slightly icy driveway yesterday morning. The driveway was wet from the rain in the evening and some remaining wetness had frozen over night.

DKSUKO women’s Wellie tall rain boot provide great comfort

The vulcanized natural rubber material provides the thermal insulation of shoes. Together with the soft sole these features make the pair also suitable for endured outdoor working and gardening even in fall. Here in the Interior the temperatures are already below the freezing point in the morning.

When putting them on I was really pleased with the toe-box. It complies with the human feet. It is also large enough not to squeeze your toes when you double your socks, have wide feet and/or bunions. The Wellies also permit adding a thin insole for additional insulation or comfort. Who likes cold feet?

Not being keen on cleaning I love that these Wellingtons have a dirt-resistant exterior. That makes me comfortable about wearing them in the yard for gardening and bird feeding as well. You know they drop always something 😉 .

DKSUKO silver glitter boots are easy to style

These rain boots are definitively a statement. Their fashionable appearance permits wearing them also just for fun. From far they look silver, but from close up you see silver glitter in all colors of the rainbow. A genius design idea! Silver is a neutral meaning they work with a lot of stylish clothes. I wore them for shopping (casual outfit in this post), to go work (outfit with the floral dress and cardigan), and even in the yard. Of course, they are also great for beach walks <3.

Great price-performance ratio

The boots are made from high quality natural rubber. This means they won’t crack when the material stretches. The toe box has a classic round-toe design – an eternal classic to wear for years to come. Given the quality and versatility to wear them plus their classic with an edge design, they are a great deal at only $32.99 plus free shipping.

No worry about sizing. You can return them and get a full refund: No shipping charges! <3 Plus my experience with their customer service was great! Very friendly.
