the real deal/hunter boots

In a world of fast fashion it can be really easy to forgo quality in favor of quantity.  

I love switching it up every once in a while, especially in the case of trendier items (ahem), but that doesn't mean that there aren't certain items where you should just choose the original, quality option.   We're taking price out of it here, because when you take it down to things like value & cost per wear, these things don't really count as expensive anymore.  Hence the column title: 

"The Real Deal"

First up: Hunter Wellington Boots.  

I had a long fight with these things.  I even owned a pair of, admittedly, very pretty black Coach riding-style rain boots.  But they just weren't doing it for me!  I put it off, every year, seeing all the girls at Bonnaroo and Jazzfest rocking them on the rainier days while my feet stood in the puddles of water that had formed inside my cowboy boots.  

Finally, this year when my mother in law asked what I wanted for my birthday I broke down and just said "I really want some army green Hunter rain boots."  I felt weirdly spoiled asking for them - it isn't that $140 is such an insane amount of money.  I've certainly owned shoes that cost more.  I think it's the fact that they're made of RUBBER and rainboots seem to be available for cheaper just about everywhere else.  But those other versions don't cut it, and this is one of those occasions where you just have to go for the real deal.  

Go on, get them here, you'll thank me later. When it's raining, and you aren't only dry, but you look damn cute.
