I'll admit it - I procrastinated on this post. It just seemed so cruel, so callous, so utterly HEARTLESS to luxuriate poolside and casually type out a blog about "Cool Boots for Warm Weather" when so many of you, our faithful readers, have "wintry mix" in the forecast today...
... but we're on a crusade of sorts here at SHADBELLY, championing for functional, fashionable, and yes, "appropriate" equestrian footwear. So even if you're not headed south this season, take a break from your barn chores, tuck your half-frozen fingers into the ingenious high neck of your horse's warm, dry and ever-so-stylish Horseware Rambo Wug, close your eyes ... and THINK OF SPRING.
A warm breeze blows through your hair, birds sing, the first foal of the year (by Totilas - why not) frolics in the field ... What? It's raining? No problem, because you're wearing your Iceni Boots from www.gumleafUSA.com.
That's right. A little rain and a pair of Iceni rain boots are just what you need to look puddle-jumpingly proper at the barn ... without trying too hard.
Gumleaf has a boot for every season, but the Gumleaf ICENI boots we're featuring here are designed for warmer weather. They're cotton-lined, so the Iceni's are ideal for the rainy days of spring, and even the inevitable showers that pop up all year round in Florida.
Gumleaf offers the Iceni rain boots in two different fits, a regular Iceni style for ladies who like a slimmer calf (retail for $125.00), or the Iceni Vent for those who prefer a wider calf boot (retail for $135.00). Both styles come in your choice of Blue, Black or Red. Best of all, Gumleaf boots are designed and hand made exclusively in Europe - these are REAL wellies.
Not sure about style or fit? Shoot a email to peggy@gumleafUSA.com because NOBODY knows wellies like Peggy and her husband, Jack. They discovered Gumleaf boots in the UK and loved them so much, they decided to bring the brand to the USA. We're thrilled they did.
Rainy day happiness? Absolutely.
