My main interest in this stems from a Glamour story on the best looks of the Marc by Marc Jacobs line over the years. It includes this shot of the “must-have wellies” from fall 2004.
I was excited to see this because I knew I got my Marc boots before 2005, but I never looked up the exact season. It’s interesting to know!
These are so filthy! Soap and water don’t help. But I don’t care that much, because if it’s raining hard enough to wear these, no one is stopping on the street to stare at my feet. It has to be raining really, really hard to justify wearing these boots out because they are easy to get on but very difficult to get off. I swear, I once fought them for 20 minutes! I save them for occasions when I need to be out in a deluge for hours at a time, like the Madonna concert at Yankee Stadium I went to in 2012.
I believe these boots are the only Marc by Marc Jacobs design I own, but I’ve certainly gotten good use out of them!
