Rainy season appears to be over, but the world's fanciest rain gear just hit the Internet. As of this morning, Net-a-Porter carries the croc-embossed wellingtons by Jimmy Choo and Hunter. Nylon explains the insidery reasons why the luxury site got first dibs on the shoes: It "still runs Jimmy Choo’s eCommerce store, owing to a longtime friendship between NAP’s fashion director, Natalie Manhasset, and JC’s empress, Tamara Mellon." Anyway! The boots go for $395. They did make a brief appearance at the Jimmy Choo on Fifth Avenue, but sold out immediately. Both that location and the one on Madison will get more sometime in October or November, but the waiting list is already staggeringly long at both stores.
