There are countless good reasons to wear rainbows but sadly only one real excuse to wear rain boots. I’ll be wishing extra-hard for rain this Pride Month (hello, June!), because I want to splash around in my new rain boots as much as possible.
Honestly, I'll probably be stomping around in them anyway. They're so comfy and cute that I wore them on the driest day in May, just 'cause. That's normal, right?
As a shopping editor, an LGBTQ ally and an ankle-boot fanatic, I was thrilled to find these high-quality, rainbow-kissed London Fog Women's Piccadilly Rain Boots on sale at Amazon, starting at $40, down from $80! I mean, London Fog, people. At these prices?
The rainbow gusset pops against the classic matte black of the boot without shouting at you. As in, it doesn't look like I'm trying to out-cute my 8-year-old. It just looks awesome. Plus, these boots are magically squeak-free.
They're crazy comfortable too — moreso than any rain boot I've ever worn. No wonder they're so popular! More than 2,400 five-star reviewers are with me on this choice. Which reminds me...I need to add my five stars.
Everyone gets free shipping on these boots, because they're over $25 (Amazon policy). But as an Amazon Prime member, I got mine fast. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.
I was first drawn to these boots by the graphic elastic rainbow gusset at the inner and outer ankle. But when I received them, I was even more impressed by the quality! The insole is nice 'n' cushy while the rubber outsole is sturdy, with good traction. The toe bed is roomy enough to accommodate my wider foot.
The bottom of the heel has a narrow, teensy lift, which felt a tad awkward at first, but I don't even notice it now. They're just comfy. The unsupported arch feels fine for regular wear, but for extended hikes, I might want to add orthotics.
Now, if you want a truly informed reference on how these bear out when it comes to long walks, here's a doozy from Amazon: "Great choice!! I like this boot — very comfortable. I’m a mail carrier, so that’s important." When a mail carrier vouches for comfort, that's worth something.
Others agree! One five-star fan wrote: "Perfect. These are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever had on my feet. They fit like a glove!...They also aren’t hot like some rubber boots...my feet didn’t sweat."
Another chimed in: "Sooo comfortable. Has a squishy feeling almost when you walk, not memory foam that compresses and does not keep form, whatever this is keeps its form and sorta springs when you walk — and its easy to slip on and off. I got them to work in the garden and as rain boots because our yard gets very swampy when it rains. I will definitely be recommending to anyone needing a good rain/work boot."
No superhero story is complete without a supervillain — in Batman’s case, there is a galaxy of some of the best ever created in comic books. From psychopaths to those who turned to a life of crime because of a cruel twist of fate, the best Batman villains of all time include all those who throw a formidable challenge to the Dark Knight’s quest to keep Gotham City safe. Since the debut in DC comics and over the decades, Batman has become one of the greatest superheroes in history. The depiction o
If five-star luxury accommodation options are way too mainstream for you, consider this zero star hotel instead. Created by Swiss concept artists Frank and Patrik Riklin, the hotel is essentially just an open-air room where sleep might be impossible. According to the artists, who are twin brothers, it’s meant to be a unique way for people to ponder about the problems plaguing the world, and take action accordingly. The new project is described by the brothers as an “anti-idyllic version” of thei
Gotham City is the centre of the action in DC Comics featuring Batman. Over the decades since Batman made his debut, exploring Gotham City has become relatively easy because of the details in the DC comics, films, television shows and video games on the Dark Knight. Any guide to Gotham City will therefore include its own landmarks — the famous skyscrapers, huge gardens, a reservoir, seafront, bridges and rivers. The Batman (2022), a film starring Robert Pattinson as the superhero, added the late

After an intense and overwhelming new moon that took us to murky depths, perhaps even triggering dark nights of the soul for many of us, the Moon has begun to increase it’s light, and it waxes it’s way to end the week with a conjunction with it’s South Node (Ketu), where it’s opening powerful psychic channels of awareness. This is aided by the fact that Mercury unites with the Sun in a powerful conjunction, bringing us flashes of divine inspiration. The stars have beautiful messages for us that
There’s nothing more relaxing than watching the world pass from the comforts of the night trains in Europe. The sound of revving engines, meeting new people from around the world, luxurious amenities and tasting some of the best in-house meals are some of the memorable takeaways you can expect if you travel Europe by sleeper trains. European sleeper trains are highly regarded for their long routes, comfortable compartments and stylish cabins that make the journey enjoyable if you are travelling
A video of a giant aircraft powered by nuclear engines, comprising state-of-the-art infrastructure and amenities was recently released on YouTube. Dubbed the Sky Cruise, this flying hotel is supposedly one ‘that never lands’ while cruising above the clouds without any pilots. It is not a futuristic airliner straight out of a sci-fi film but will soon exist in reality. Based on a design concept by Tony Holmsten which is reimagined and animated by Hashem Al-Ghali, the detailed CGI video was releas
