Outfit of the Day—Thursday, April 9, 2015:

My dad always said that there’s 24 usable hours in every day.

-Corey Mason (Empire Records, 1995)

It’s true. No matter the weather – if its rains or shines – everyday is an opportunity to look your best. Today, my look is inspired by Liv Tyler’s character Corey Mason in Empire Records, which is my all time favorite pick for teen flick.

Looking for Ilse Jacobsen boots? You can find them at Amé Amé.

Ilse Jacobsen Rub 1 for High Arches

A few weeks ago a woman came into Amé Amé and said she never owned rainboots before because she had a tough time getting into boots because of her high arches.

I suggested she try on our tall lace up Ilse Jacobsen Rub 1 rubber rainboots in Army Green and of course she found them to be perfect

Pink Maniera Rainboots & Anne Koplik Religious Necklaces

When caught in a storm, it’s nice to be reminded there’s a God.

(In real life the color of these boots is a bit lighter looking with some lavender understone.)

These pink boots are made in Europe by a company called Maniera.

What’s nice about these boots is that they have soles with very good traction and they’re made of natural rubber.  There are a number of rainboots made by good brands whose traction can wear out quite quickly and then the boots become rather unsafe when sidewalks are icey.

Made with super-stretchy, waterproof fabric, these shoe covers shield any type of shoe from inclement weather. They were made for walking, with traction-focused rubber outsoles, and easily zip on and off.

Although ingenious, Grace certainly did not sacrifice style for function. The covers come in two flavors: a chic black and a daring leopard print.

Grace Carter has a cover to accommodate any kind of shoe. There are different shapes matching the silhouettes of your favorite flats or heels. The small fits shoe sizes 5 and 6, medium fits shoe sizes 7 and 8, and large fits shoe sizes 9 and 10.

Reasons you will love Grace Carter zip up boots:

  • Covers can easily fold up to fit conveniently in a small purse
  • Completely weather resistant
  • Excellent traction sole to keep you from slipping

 

Bootights By Leg Up

When facing cold weather, even on rainy or snowy days, for women I highly recommend wearing  knee high boots with thick tights and a wool shirt dress or skirt and sweater as opposed to pants.

The lycra dries much quicker and you stay just as warm if not warmer.

And now with our extra durable Bootights by Leg Up, which are tights with built in you can be a sustainable fashion-ista by not having to throw away tights as often.

One of the big reasons we think Bootights will last you longer is that they have a “performance sock” built right into the tights.  Thus you won’t quickly end up with holes near your big toe which often happens when you wear tights with boots.

Furthermore we’re excited to have Bootights at Amé Amé - the world’s only rain gear and candy specialty store – because a lot of women complain about cold feet as well as their feet aching in rain boots (and other boots or shoes with flat insoles and little arch support).

Bootights takes care of both these problems!

You’ll have more comfort than with ordinary tights by wearing  Bootights because built into the sock is arch support!  Plus the sock has moisture-wicking capabilities that help your toes stay drier and more toasty.

If you need a little more convincing before coming into our store or buying from us online, here’s what the people of Bootights have to say about the awesome sock

  1. moisture-wicking so feet are drier and warmer
  2. compression arch support so feet feel supported and energized all day long.
  3. top mesh so feet breath inside boots
  4. sculpted cushioning so heel and toe are protected and comfy in boots
  5. contoured fit of sock so boots fit amazing. no more slipping feet or bunching socks!

Come get a pair for yourself.

Amaort Rainboots

A rainboot from Japan that only seems to be found at the UK store Mr. Shoes and asked about by an Italian customer who came into Amé Amé - we’re intrigued!

We love the cheerful candy colors as well.

We just would love to give a try of the soles before we go carrying them.

The boots look very similar to the Japanese Da Ichi Fisherman boots which we have carried in the past.

We brought these boots in after discovering them at Loopy Mango, who took this great photo.

However we now have Aigle’s Rubber Pack Boots

Aigle boots have a firmer sole and I personally found that the Daichi boots became a little uncomfortable to wear a long time because they lacked very little arch support.

However, I have heard from others that they love their Dai Ichi boots, so I just might have odd feet and maybe the Amaorts will be the next set of folding rain boots we bring into our East Village rain gear and candy store.

50 Shades of Grey

Grey rainboots are a nice alternative to black and softening outfits.  I also like how a grey outfit can make a grey day feel special for being grey.
