Manolo the Columnist: Ramona from Aquatalia by Marvin K

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,

I will soon be on my fabulous, romantic getaway in Italy. Yes, I’ll be there in the frigid and possibly wet days of February. Can you suggest an comfortable, stylish, and waterproof boot to keep my tootsies happy?

Corrine

Manolo says, how wonderful to be going to the Bella Italia in the depths of the American winter, which by the time the Manolo’s friend arrives in Europe will be into its seventeenth straight month of below-freezing, snow-covering, icy-sidewalk-slip-and-falling fury.

Thus, the comparative warmth of Roma, albeit with the occasional rains, will be the welcome change.

Of the course, it is never the bad time to visit Italy, especially if your mind is set on amor. It is the perfect place to go with the loved one, what with the wine, and the food, and the heady atmosphere of antiquity, art and style. So romantic!

And, if you do not have the loved one, what better place to find the temporary loved one than Roma, where every handsome Silvio, Leonardo, and Tony stands ready to flatter you shamelessly, put you on the back of his Vespa and speed you around the Colosseum as if you were the seventeen-year-old exchange student who has slipped away from her chaperones.

Here is the Romana from Aquatalia by Marvin . the super stylish, weatherproof boot that would keep your feets dry while you tread the Via Appia. And look! They are made in Italy, so it will be like the homecoming for feets!

    Those boots are hawt!

    Love, love, love the red boots! Add them to your virtual closet via http://www.fashion-ade.com/ to see other outfit options.




  3. Little Red Says:

    Wow, those are the sexiest rain boots I’ve ever seen!

    Those shoes are indeed lovely, but may I recommend you also take a flat shoe for all the walking you will be doing on cobbled streets and sidewalks? I wore my Polartec-lined Merrells, which are not as pretty as these beautiful boots but kept my feet warm and comfy.

    I would also suggest long underwear. We went to Paris in November and I misunderestimated the weather, believing the forecast of mid 40s. Ha. It was below freezing. Hard to enjoy the scenery when you are cold.

    Watch out for pickpockets!




  5. Nora Charles Says:

    Wonderful boots for the Wonder Woman too.
