Fern recently moved to Germany, and having always lived in the dry environs of New Mexico, she wasn’t fully prepared for these rainier climes. She’s gradually acquired umbrellas, raincoats, and hats for her head, but the last piece of the puzzle was missing. If she was going to have rubbery shoes to slog around in, she wanted them to be bright. She wanted them to be cheeky. She didn’t want them to feature patriotic insignia or drawings of butterflies. Butterflies are for flying, not jumping in puddles.

A pair of rainboots in red or yellow were really the only ones that would suffice, and lucky for our picky Fern, some red ones crossed her path. Today is their debut.

Fern, like many young women of her ilk, has been on a many-years search for the Right Boots. The ones that would be classic and versatile and supportive in the arch. When Fern spotted these particular boots, she didn’t hesitate to purchase them. She knew they were Right. Here’s my debit card, Mr. Cashier. Bag them up and be quick about it!

She even found herself enamored with the boots’ chocolatey shade of brown, a shade so much darker than she thought her Right Boots would have. That’s how love is, I suppose — always looking a little different than you expected, but feeling just how you hoped.

(And a humorous side note: according to the internet, the maker of these boots — Sudini — is Italian, and it has a scandalous tagline. “Shoes that Make Love to Your Feet.” Well well. It looks like Fern’s feet might get more love than they bargained for.)
