My preferred foot wear is a pair of black rubber boots. I paid $14.00 for them at the Walmart. I wear them all the time. Anytime I go out to water plants, play with the dog, get the mail, I'm wearing those boots. Even if I am in a baby doll dress or overalls, they seem to be my first choice. They are functional.
I am guilty also of wearing them to go to visit relatives. It wasn't a slight I just forgot I had them on when we left the house. The women in my family were mortified for me. They drove me home to get "real" shoes on. I have only done that once.
One rainy day we had epic rainfall. Water was sheeting across the lawn 6 inches deep and seeping into the house. I went out to clear the clogged swales and help the flood waters move more easily away from the house. This was fairly easy for me to do with a shovel and of course my trusty boots. Hubby had only flip flops and tennis shoes. Neither of which is flood worthy footwear.
He was so jealous he bought a pair the very next day. Together when we both wear or boots and tuck our pant legs in the tops we look like outtakes from a Godzilla movie. You know the ones. The movie extras that are all fleeing Godzilla as he attacks their factory. They all wear matching boots, white ones usually.
I'm not anti fashion or anything. I have girly shoes too. I also love to see people in beautiful footwear. There is nothing hotter than a well dressed man in gorgeous and stylish shoes. It is just that when I am home and I feel unguarded and relaxed those rubber boots suit me. They are a part of me too. Durable, inexpensive, practical, wash and wear shit kickers are just the thing for me in my happy place.
