Spring showers are a real kick with these colorful rain boots from Swims.
Dora boots, Swims ($95). INSET: Ikram Goldman
“Swims are my absolute favorite rubber boots, and they’re perfect for the weather we’ve had this year. I’ve literally gotten more than a dozen e-mails from clients saying, ‘Thank God for my Swims; they’ve come in so handy.’ They’re little booties made in all rubber, they come in the most fun colors—vibrant yellow, red, navy blue, lilac—and they’re super-comfortable. They are a hit and cannot miss. I discovered them while walking through a showroom a couple years ago, fell in love with them, and bought them instantly. They’re just so adorable; they blow away other rain boots.”
“What makes them stand out is that they look like a fashion boot. They have softer lines; they’re more fitted, like a glove on the foot as opposed to a big clunky rain boot or gardener’s boot. They’re lightweight, easy to pack, and easy to wear—a lifesaver in a muddy, rainy season like spring. In fact, a lot of my clients even wore them through the snow this winter. For us Chicagoans, they can be worn all season long, spring/summer into fall/ winter. The price is incredible as well. While most similar fashion shoes and boots go for $200–$1,500, these are really nicely priced at $95. We’ve sold a ton of them and keep having to reorder them. I wear them myself and I love them.” Ikram, 15 E. Huron St., 312-587-1000
