Red Rain Boots
Red rain boots make wet days—or gardening days—all the more cheerful.
Giving poverty the boot: That’s the mission of Roma Boots, who donates a pair of rain boots to a child in need – particularly those living in cold or wet climates – for every pair sold. Plus, 10% of all sales proceeds goes to the Roma for All Foundation, which helps educate children in impoverished communities. Roma’s boots for kids and adults are made of natural rubber and feature a quick-dry cotton lining and a three-layer insole for comfort.
Traditional Home With Smart Storage Under the Stairs
Adding cubbies, shelving or hanging space under a staircase provides storage in an otherwise unused space, and creates a designated spot for rain boots, backpacks and sports equipment.
A throwback to the 1930s, this mudroom features floor-to-ceiling wood paneling. A long bench provides a seat for removing and storing rain boots and snow shoes, while shelves above ensure that this classic space stays as organized as possible.
