Rain Boots That Can Reduce To 20% Their Original Size

(via) After getting caught in two of today’s three torrential downpours wearing the same pair of slip on Vans, we’re liking the idea of Sardines. Not the fish, mind. It’s the name of these Wellington-style boots made of “injection moulded thermoplastic polyurethane” (ie. plastic). They reduce to one fifth their original size, which is an improvement on the original considering a standard pair of Hunter Wellies take up as much closet space as a Boeing 747. Imagined and developed Spanish designer Estel Alcaraz, these puppies are pretty much perfect for Vancouverites. Bonus: canary yellow FTW.
