How to Protect Yourself While Biking in The Rain

  1. 1. It was raining in New York today when I stepped from the Penn Station subway stop and that I instantly regretted the footwear that I picked out for now: ballet flats that let the freezing water from every puddle to slosh over the tops and to the shoe, soaking my socks and chilling my foot. Obviously every other individual I passed seemed to have been much more prepared (I was hoping to forget about the waterbed I had been walking on by imagining knocking them over to steal their boots I look more powerful than hershe probably wears my dimensions; this girl probably wouldn't even notice if I took her shoes while she's searching through her bags). Clearly the ideal choice for rain-wear is rubber rainboots or galoshes. They are waterproof (which can be the most important) and they generally reach until the knee so they're splash-proof too. And they're usually wide enough which you could tuck your jeans into them to keep them dry till you reach the office. I saw women in innumerable patterns and colors dashing across the sidewalks - emblem brands like Coach, cutsey prints such as tiny flamingos or cherries, patterns like plaids or spots and each color of the rainbow. The great thing about rubber rain boots is that now that there are many variants, you're almost guaranteed to never see your boot twin. And rain boots are under $50! I have a pair of Steve Madden rainboots who have miniature black and white skulls printed on them when you look at them from far they appear to be plain old checkerboard.

They're horizontal rubber shoes (sometimes with leather trimming ) that cover most of the surface of your foot. So they're not bulky like rubber rain boots could be but will still keep your feet warm (unlike my ballet flats). I'm grateful designers came up with this because these shoes are good if maybe it is just likely to drizzle for a portion of the day or when it is wet outside from the night before but not going to rain more. Definitely watch out. I saw an adorable pair which were brightly colored brightly yellow rubber using a tan coloured leather on the upper that tied with tassles - that they had been like preppy trendy but at a there is no way you could mistake me for a nerd kind of way. A Good Deal of people don't know These exist, and no, I do not mean just using a waterproofing spray on your existing boots. These boots are actually manufactured with a particular procedure to create them waterproof as rubber rain boots without looking any different from ordinary leather boots. This does cause the price to go up a bit, however, so don't expect to come across this type of boot for less than $200 unless there is a sale going on. The most frequent style I've noticed are riding boot shapes with a buckle across the top of the foot or around the calf. Normal leather boots are also worn in the rain and are probably more But be sure you do take special care of your leather boots if you intend to create them your lasting rain-wear. Weatherproofing sprays are good (make certain

Tired of when the rain turns to snow, however, stains out of the salt spread on sidewalks to melt the snow can completely wreck your fine leather boots. - almost any closed toe type will work as long as the stage extends from the toes to the heel and the stage is at least an inch at front, 1.5 to 2 inches will be greater. It is easy: platforms immediately make you farther away from the wet floor so the splashes need to achieve higher to get to your feet. This all means you're more inclined to remain dry. Look for rubber soles though, maybe with some grip, in case your walking anyplace that could be slippery (wet leaves onto the ground, etc). Falling on your face is bad, falling when you're wearing platforms is worse (farther to collapse, risk of a sprained ankle, etc) but falling from the rain while wearing platforms would be your worst (think moist clothing like a sign of shame after you have regained your composure). If you can't live without wearing your ballet flats after all this though, I know. Just be sure to bring some socks. If you are using a bike, bike, or walking to the bus or Then aside of umbrella and jacket, you may want to consider of getting a pair of rain boot covers. They cover your leg and sneakers so they'll dry as you walk or ride at the rainy day. shoe covers
