Vintage Rain Boots

I had those little red boots on the far left when I was a kid. You pulled them on over your shoes, and there was an elastic loop and button at the top. But why doesn't anyone make nice looking women's rubber overshoes anymore? Like the ones in the center above from U.S. Gaytees?

Or the ones on the left here? Totes brand only makes men's overshoes. Why? And what about overboots? See the fur trimmed pair on the right above, and those by Red Ball below? The heels are hollow so you slip them on over your shoes. Aren't they cute?

Would you buy cute rain overshoes or boots like these if you could find them, instead of the big clunky rainboots available today? Judging by this current EBay auction, the answer is yes!

I remember those too! I had a pair that were clear-ish and went on over my shoes.

We don't get much rain here, but if I lived/worked in SF or NY I'd definitely buy them!

YES. I desperately wish that such a product existed today ... and wasn't going for a ton of dough on eBay.
