I'd like to avoid the rain boot booties/sneakers look and find something more in the "jelly flats" category, but that are made for rainy weather. I usually wear a steady size 9, but might wear these with socks so 9.5 would probably do, too. I'd like to find a pair in black, but a fun solid color (who doesn't love yellow rainboots?) would be great. I'll be visiting San Francisco next weekend and would like to find some by then, but since it's super short notice, I'd appreciate your help to add these to my wardrobe for next time as well. My budget is around $50, but it's flexible for the right flat. ;) Thanks so much! -Chelsea
