RUBBER BOOTIES

Oh the joy of waterproof shoes!

(Although I have to confess, they are not the most comfortable ones. Totally ok for an hour or so, but not to walk in for hours. Ouch. But then again, few shoes are...)

I have tried my shoes once, and I noticed the same thing... But they look gorgeous, nothing else matters :)

These shoes have the most elegant shape I have ever seen !! They are close to perfection. I wanted to buy them, too, but they are in fact a little too high for me. For a long walk in the rain the heels should be about 5cm or so....this picture of you in the rain is adorable. Those shoes are definitely worth the pain....

Unfortunately pretty shoes and comfort very rarely go hand in hand but at least they are waterproof! Such a cute autumn photo.

Madeleine Miranda : yes, I love htat umbrella myslef too!

Ilona : yes you're right :)

Whitderr: thank you. Lately the credits for the pictures go to my boyfriend.

O's daydream : alright!

Frollein von Sofia : but it's amazing how some hoes stay comfy for hours even if the heel is higher! Not many though... but my Minna Parikka shoes are such a pair - the heel i steady enough and the sole rather thick.

Mrs Munster : and the first 30 minutes are totally comfy so in the end its more win than lose I guess :)

Wow, mega awesome! I love the picture, it is stunning!

Kitten said...

The shape of those shoes are just so *want*! Concerning comfort - have you tried those gel-thingies you can stick in the shoes, like a small insole? Could be worth a try maybe? :)

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Rosie : thanks! I like the picture too :)

Kitten : They usually work but in this case it's more the sides that are too... hard, or something. And they are a little bit loose around the heel. I'm just hoping they'll form after my foot but I'm not sure since they're rubber.

Anna Liljestrand said...

Riktigt riktigt fina ändå <3 Och som du säger, vilka klackar är bekväma i längden ;)

i'm glad you said they were uncomfortable... i almost bought them! they look great though!

Bucca said...

So cute - but I am not sure about rubber shoes it sounds really uncomfortable!

I love those boots – I am trying v hard not to buy three pairs of Melissas at the moment! (oh, how I love the blue ones with the red heart...!)
Water proof boots are, of course, a sensible investment!

I love the picture, too.

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Bucca : well in that case they're not that bad, the outside is flocked and loks liek velvet and the inner lining is canvas. Pretty much like regular rubber boots that just breathe a tittle bit more.

Esme : Oh I know I love the blue ones with a heart too!

I have thousands of Melissas. Living in Brazil makes buying them so much easy! I've been buying melissas for almost 10 years now. I can tell you one thing: they can be very tricky.. The thing is, if you use them rarely, they will hurt you everytime until the rubber stretches out. I have two or three pairs which i use almost everyday. The first 9 or 10 times I had to carry thousands of band-aids inside my purse.

Good luck with these ones!

This is a gorgeous photo.

fotot är helt underbart!

Heather said...

those are very pretty, very elegant, I need to find a pair, the only thing that I have now for the rain are a pair of rubber golashes, not very pretty, or comfy!

AMIT said...
