The current wet weather may not be doing much for our spirits, but it is giving the imaginations of Wellington boot designers a workout, that's for sure. Never have we seen so many different styles of rain boot, with the latest offering being these rubber ankle boots by Vagabond. They're £34.99, and offer all the rain proofing of regular wellies, but without the height, which I guess will make them handy for city dwellers who want to keep their feet dry without wearing brightly coloured knee-highs.

These are still brightly coloured, of course, but they're also available in black, and you can find them at www.vagabond.com.
