In the spring and rainy climates, it makes a modicum of sense to have enormous, clunky rain boots. I do see the appeal, particularly since I did NOT have them in college and became acutely aware that there is no worse first world feeling than sopping wet jeans clinging to my ankles.
But like so many other things, you have to think about how you’re wearing them, otherwise the heaviness and the location of a strong line across your calves can really visually drag you down. I would also suggest that unless it is actively raining or there are huge puddles to be found, maybe the giant wellies are unnecessary.
