superdumb supervillain: Fancy Rubbers!

Fancy Rubbers!

winner: nanja






In junior high, I remember thinking it was weird that people would talk about rubbers so much in old books and movies. Oh, that's not what they meant. Never mind. The only kind of rubber footwear you see in Hawaii is zori, aside from the brief wave of jelly sandals in the '80s. There wasn't much call for dress shoes or rain shoes in my youth. When I came across a pair of rubber booties at my grandparents' house on the mainland, I had no idea what they were. They weren't pretty, though, I'll tell you that much…



Shuella is a modern interpretation of your grandmother's galoshes, literally a "shoe umbrella" to protect your delicate footwear from the rain. They can be worn over any heel height, from ballet flats to skyscraper heels, and feature a non-slip sole. Shuella is available in three bright candy colors (hot pink, buttercup yellow and apple green) and classic black. Each pair comes in its own zippered pouch, complete with a towel to wipe them off when you reach your destination. Because you're a classy lady, with places to go and people to see. And be seen by!



To enter and win your own pair of Shuella booties, please comment on this post with your favorite color or a color you would like to see offered in the future.


Entries will be accepted through November 26th and I'll pick two winners using Random.org. US/International readers are eligible. Only one entry/comment per person, please.


For an additional entry, post my button on your blog, fave me on Technorati or subscribe via email or subscribe via reader and leave an extra comment letting me know. You may also leave an extra comment with your favorite non-Tea Party post from any of my co-hosts' blogs!

  1. Oh They are darling! Of course, the Pink is what I'd choose. I like the black also but I'll step out of my safe zone on these.
    How cute. It would be nice to always have a pair handy that are not old lady style!

  2. I'm So boring I'd pick black. But the other colors are great too!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Ooh fun! I love the brights, but others may be interested in seeing other neutrals like chocolate or navy.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I guess I would pick yellow. Why not, you know? Live life out loud!
    These are great; please stop calling them rubbers though. That is like when Aussies call "flip-flops" "thongs".

    ReplyDelete
  5. Those are so cool! I can't believe I'm writing that about galoshes, as I too remember my Grandma's which were U.G.L.Y.

    I love the green ones but hope they make a pair in sky blue, so there's a little blue sky outside on a rainy day.

  100. my fave post on fractured toy was when mannequin when on about how she does some things to prepare for thanksgiving and the holidays ahead of time. cutting up veggies and onions, and even buying some things a little pre-prepared so that she can enjoy that day as much as everyone else, but also cook a great meal for everyone. I thought I was great!

  110. I love the basic black. These remind me of the galoshes we wore as kids. We also called them "rubbers". For obvious reasons no one would call them that now LOL. These are really great and practical - much improved from the ones I wore in the 70's.
