Hunter Rain Boots for the College Girl

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

Hello Manolo,

I’m a college student and in serious need of a pair of wellies…I had two pairs of J Crew rain boots (flamingos and anchors!) until they both cracked in the same month! I’m looking for a pair of rain boots that I can walk around campus all day and still look banging. I’m in love with the silver Hunter’s and have heard Hunter’s are the best quality rain boots. Do you know of any other brands, especially affordable ones, that won’t crack?

Can’t wait to go stylishly puddle stomping again!


Manolo says, the Manolo adores the Hunter rain boots, as does the Posse Manolo, at least one of whom has adopted the Hunter boots as part of her usual rainy day outfit. (This tall, elegant woman wears her Hunter Original boots with her designer jeans tucked into the tops, together with the Barbour coat, giving her the English country look that seems to impress the natives in the rainier parts of Southern California.)

And so, the Manolo says, although the Hunter rain boots are on the high side of affordable, they are none the less worth the price, as their durability is legendary.

The Hunter Original in the silver is some what difficult to come by, which is why one may wish to consider them in aubergine or the eponymous hunter green.

Indeed, the Hunter boots fall under the category of all-time classic.

Manolo says, Donatella in her own words.

“I don’t even know what my natural color is. Natural? What is natural? What is that? I do not believe in totally natural for women. For me, natural has something to do with vegetables.”

Hmm, speaking of words, what is that partial word in the background?
