I was browsing the new Anthropologie catalog, and the item I wanted most of all were these galoshes on the front cover. I like them. But they were not anywhere in the catalog to buy. So, I emailed the customer service email form and asked where I could get them and all they answered back was, "Unfortunately additional information is not available for this item. The item was purchased as a prop for our recent photo shoot. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause." I don't think that was an acceptable answer. The stylist who worked on that shoot knows where the boots came from. Ask them. I really have been wanting boots to wear in the rain for a while. I haven't bought any before because when I was younger, moving pipe on our farm, we had what we called "irrigation boots" that we wore to keep our pants dry. I had both knee-high and thigh-high boots, thank you very much, and they look basically just like the boots girls have been wearing around. I've been considering just buying some more knee-high boots from the local Cal Ranch to wear as galoshes. They can't be much different than the boots people are buying these days, except that they only come in black, no little cherry pattern option or anything like that.
