Earlier this week I wrote about anklington boots (that’s Wellingtons that are ankle length) and while lots of you LOVED them, there will be some of you out there that just don’t like Wellington boots. And I get that – there are certain occasions when a wellie just doesn’t feel appropriate. Luckily, to coincide with this thought, Converse has launched a range of rubber shoes that might just fit the bill.

We’ve all learnt the hard way that classic canvas Converse shoes are NOT waterproof.Β But that’s quite something isn’t it? We ALL know that fact. The number of people who have never owned a pair of Converse must be really small. So the number of people who will be really happy about these new rubber styles is likely to be…well, a lot!

Converse aren’t the only ones making cool rubber non-Wellington shoes. Hunter has been at it for a while, and I love the high-top trainers you can currently order on its website. There is also a range of rubber ballet pumps and I’m excited about next season’s offering of lace-up plimsol-style boots.

And how about this balmy hot wet weather we’re having at the moment? According to my fashion thermometer, 20 degrees -as it was in some parts of the UK yesterday – is plenty warm enough to still be wearing sandals. And how perfect are these from Ancient Greek Sandals? They’re also made of rubber, so you can make the most of the Indian summer without ruining your leather sandals in puddles.

  1. I love these shoes, in particular the rubber Converses! *she writes as the rain is pouring down outside* Do you know w if they also have changed the soles of the shoes? The regular Converse sole is lethal on wet metal… I want me some of the Ancient Greeks for the summer…
