Do ya’ll see this weather report on the left? It is definitely a rainy spring here in Texas! I’m not complaining…come June, we’ll be begging for some rain. When 5 out of 9 days thunderstorms are predicted, it can definitely put a damper on the footwear situation. There is nothing worse than putting on a favorite pair of shoes and on the trek to or from work they end up getting saturated with water; uncomfortable and I’m sorry, but they are never the same again! I have been keeping an eye out for a fantastic pair of rain boots since last year and I was ecstatic to find Roma Boots. And then even more thrilled when we decided to partner up and I am now able to share Roma Boots with all of you wonderful people! Roma Boots is a socially conscious ‘buy one give one’ boot company that merges fashion with philanthropy to help impoverished children around the world. It was founded in by Romanian-born Samuel Bistrian. Giving poverty the boot by bringing street children and orphans hope, love and lasting change in the most sustainable and practical way.
For every pair of Roma Boots sold, a brand new pair stuffed with educational supplies is donated to a child in need. Roma’s ultimate goal is not only to provide aid, but to educate. Ten percent of all sales proceeds go to the Roma For All Foundation to help these impoverished children break out of their cycle of poverty and despair. By doing so we will empower them to contribute their gifts & talents to society, eradicate poverty as a condition and a state of mind to make this world a better place. I was generously sent a beautiful pair Emma Short Boots in red from Roma Boots. Oh my goodness, when they arrived I had to immediately try them on and parade around the house in them! They slide off and on easily and are really a comfortable fit! I have worn them to work on multiple rainy occasions with the intention of changing into “work shoes”, but have ended up leaving them on because they are so comfortable.
And the kids at school think they are awesome. What teacher doesn’t love her 4th grade students thinking she’s cool? Also, I think it is important for me to point out that when I wear these boots in the rain, they are keeping my feet dry. Sounds silly to point out, but I have had multiple pairs of rain boots in the past that are not totally “waterproof.” I would step in a puddle and there must have been a leak someplace in the sole because water would leak in; resulting in wet feet and an unhappy Amanda. As I said, Roma Boots offers styles for women and even kids in a variety of colors and styles! Something for everyone! I have been eyeing the Epaga rain boot and it might need to be the next in my collection, along with a pair for each of my kiddos. You also know when you buy a pair of Roma Boots that they are stuffing a pair of boots with educational supplies and delivering it to a chid in need somewhere in this world. I would love these boots anyway, but that fact right there, will lead me to purchase my rain boots only from Roma Boots.
