We've always thought the croc-embossed rubber wellies by Jimmy Choo for Hunter were chic. But the $450 price tag made them a bit out of our league.
Enter Project Runway's biggest success story, Christian Siriano, and his latest design for Payless Shoes. Priced at a cool $49.99.
Without a doubt, the Hunter version is cuter. And we are the first to admit we aren't big fans of knock-offs. But when it comes to rubber rain boots that we wear only a handful of times per year, maybe we would make an exception... The Payless version isn't available online, but check out your local Payless store. I might be hunting down a pair in Charlotte today!
