Julie wrote, "While on a daily stroll through the mall, I notice a pair of boot. From afar the looked glorious. Close up I was in wow. Finally, I said to myself, a pair of gumboots that dont look absolutely hideous! Gumboots with a small heel. Now I can't find the exact pair (they're in the chinook centre mall in Calgary, Alberta) but I did look up a few pairs for you."
Here's a sample of what strikes Julie's fancy: Vallarta Boots ($91)
First things first, Julie. We'd like to thank you for teaching us Yanks that "gumboots" are rain boots, and secondly, we'd like to thank you for allowing us to help you find some cute ones. Who knew there were so many cool styles out there? Take a look at these babies and see what you think. They all fall well within your very reasonable budget.

P.S. You may have noticed we did two personal shoppers for Miss Julie the Canadian. Why? It's cold out, and it got us thinking about boots, which always make us drool from sheer fashion glee. The word gumboot, however, makes us practically froth at the mouth. We just couldn't contain ourselves!
