These boots are made for walking and that's just what they'll do. New rain boots was on my Fall Bucket list, so I went to Academy and bought these black rain boots for $20.00 dollars. I could have bought some of the women's fashion boots but then what would I do??? I am hooked on refashioning! I punched 6 hole in the boots 3" apart, cut 52" of red ribbon and tied em up and put No-fray on the edges. Aren't they just too cute? Good thing I got them yesterday, we've had almost 2" of rain this morning. Bring it on, I'm ready!
