Rain boots have been a necessity for their practical use from the beginning, but just recently did they become a trendy fashion statement. Rain boots can be found at any departments store, shoe store, Walmart/Target or small boutique. Whether its plaid or polka dots, cheetah print or zebra, or even a solid color, all you have to do is name it and somewhere probably has it. They can cost anywhere from $11 all the way up to $200. They are sturdy and can be used in weather like rain, snow, mud, sleet, etc. You have to really do some damage to destroy them. If you have to wear them multiple times in a week, why not have them in a pattern you love?

Spotted: Dsquared2’s spring 2012 takes common rain boots to a whole new level by adding heels to them and even puts them to use on a muddy runway.
