While pricy Chausseurs are sold in up-market fly-fishing and hunting boutiques, lesser but equally chic Le Chameau boots can be found at shops that cater to the hip urban gardener.

"We find a lot of people like the taller boot for real, wet, springtime gardening or walking the dog when it's muddy out. But then there are customers who don't garden at all -- they're buying them for a fun city boot to wear with jeans on rainy days as a fashion statement."

How you wear the boots is up to you. At the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2004 New York Fashion Week runway show , rubber wellingtons in hues of blue or yellow were worn paired with tucked-in, slim-fitting tweed trousers. For spring, one could tuck one's cotton or denim pants into tall wellies of any colour. Cohen also suggests pairing rain boots with brightly coloured tights and a skirt.
"I wear mine with tucked-in jeans," says Vicky Shaughnessy, a 23-year-old Toronto-based graphic designer. To keep her look playful-yet-polished, Shaughnessy pairs her lime-green Urban Outfitters wellies with a denim trench or a tailored-looking raincoat.
Dr. Scott Schumacher, a podiatrist in Surry, B.C., suggests rubber lovers exercise common sense when jumping aboard this trend: "These boots can trap moisture and predispose your foot to a fungal infection if worn too long," he says, suggesting a change of shoes once indoors.
If you must wear boots for an extended stretch , bring a change of socks or wear moisture-wicking hiking socks, and always let boot interiors dry completely between wearings to inhibit bacteria growth. These foot-
