Thankfully, a lot has changed since. Gumboots are now part of every fashionista’s wardrobe (I, however, don’t claim to belong to the fashionable tribe) so, if you’re looking to up your fashion quotient, this just might be the season’s must-have.
If you’re looking for options, you need just walk down Linking Road for gumboots that are available in virtually every conceivable hue and design. They’re available off the roadside as well as the several shoe shops that dot this road. Go on, show your feet some TLC.
