To most people, "glam" and "wellies" are two words that don't belong in the same sentence, unless the sentence is "She looked glam, but then she put on her wellies." Hunter boots is doing its best to challenge the conventional wisdom by pairing up with Jimmy Choo on the fanciest rain boots ever to see the inside of a puddle. They're embossed with a crocodile print (which sort of makes sense in that crocodiles spend a lot of time in the water) and they're lined with leopard print (which makes less sense, unless you consider that the lining, like the leopard, is meant to stay dry.) For $395, you can snap up a pair when they become available in June.
