Another Kiwi icon

I don't think I've ever owned a pair of gum boots in my life. Not since childhood anyway. And even before that I can't remember ever having had one of these... Kiwis, however, grow up with them. Doesn't matter if you're living on a farm or in the city - every Kiwi owns at least one pair of gum boots.

In the past 4 years I have often been asked why I still don't have any and how on earth I could do without them. So yesterday I finally listened to my friends and colleagues and am now the proud owner of these - Made in New Zealand - gum boots :-)

Nothing flash, but they do the trick. Hopefully gone are now the days of me loosing my everyday shoes in the mud or getting stuck in the mud. We'll see...
