Gucci has long been known for it’s luxury leather goods. However the venerable design house also has a tradition of experimenting with different types of materials besides it’s subtle leathers. One of its successes has been the rain boot. Accented with its signature green, red and green stripes and embossed with interlocking the G logo, this classic weather protector has become a staple in Gucci’s arsenal. Despite it’s good looks and styling, these boots are hardly appropriate paired with a business suit for a day on the town during inclement weather. Yet why ruin a good pair of your best leather shoes when the weather is so uncooperative? Let’s face it, how many of us really want to suffer the time to put on galoshes?
Never fear, Gucci has provided a solution to your weather conundrum. The rubber boot has been remade into the traditional classic moccasin complete with signature horse-bit detail. Rubber uppers complete with rubber sole make this the perfect shoe to battle the elements. While I’m especially fond of the black version with black sole, Gucci also offers these winners in blue and brown variations. The shoes can be purchased directly online at Gucci, Gucci boutiques and select retailers.
