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.
No one wants to ruin their favorite pair of shoes on a gloomy day! Protect your shoes with Grace Carter zip up boots or Gads to Go.

Reasons you will love Grace Carter zip up boots:
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.
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.
