i have been searching in vain for years for a good pair of rain boots. My ideal would be like those yellow boots we got as kids (back in the 1950's). In goes the foot, the rest of the boot is just straight up to your shin. Easy on, easy off. Seems that all the boots i find now curve in at the ankle. And, it may sound strange, but it gives my foot claustrophobia. Plus, it's a struggle to get them on and off. i've looked in Walmart, Target, Kmart, feed stores, sporting goods stores - no luck. Although, i did find a nice inexpensive rain jacket at Kmart in the sporting goods section. Anyhow, if anyone has any suggestions or leads, it would be most appreciated. The crocs i've been wearing out in the pens don't quite cut it in the pouring rain.
