Retro Wednesday.....




About 5 years ago for Christmas, my kids asked me what I wanted. I remembered how much I loved my galoshes as a kid. They kept your feet dry, they kept the bottoms of your pants dry, and you could wear your regular comfortable shoes!
I hate big heavy cumbersome boots!
Anyway, these are made by the Lacrosse Co. They are not cheap, but they wear really well, and they are Top Notch! I decided to dig these out in preparation for Winters onset. Thanksgiving is a week from tomorrow after all.
Peace...!!!

LaCrosse is one of my clients. Glad you like their product. They also manufacture and market Danner boots. All great stuff. I still have rubbers for my dress shoes...to save my soul er, sole.

Is this what they meant when we were told to get our rubbers on when it was raining?

Lynn said...

Pretty cool. Nothing like that is ever for sale in the south since we have virtually no snow.

rock on. they loock like a good sturdy pair. i remember only one pair of galoshes when i was a kid btu my mom always made us wear those freakin' red rubbers over our shoes when it rained. to make matters worse she snet us to school with a clothes pin bearing our name so we could clip them together when we took them off. gees, i took so much flak as a kid for wearing rubbers to school. and yes, part of it was because in local parlance they were referred to as rubbers, which ya know, was also understood to be something else other people wore over somTHING else to prevent something other than wet shoes.

those boots bring back memories of a snowy and cold upstate New York.

Thanks (I think)
