i was looking around youtube again. not sure exactly what for, just random thoughts too explore for and i found this b/w clip on how to wear over-boots. curiously they don't stop at the ankle, the go up to the knee and cling pretty tightly to the women's calf.
here's another video of pretty fetishistic wellingtons / rain boots from about the same time as the above. also in black and white.
which reminds me of a new product which is really just the same thing - and in color too. Shuella's are essentially the same thing a wrap on entry and a more clunky heel.
personally i think the vintage ones were much more classy which leads me to another thought i had for awhile which was if time travel was really working, what it would be used for is shopping. ;-)
