In Russian, the word for “galoshes” is (roughly) pronounced “galosha” – true fact.
1.) When dirty, they hose off for easy cleaning.
2.) They come in fun colors and designs – I currently have pirates and polka dots. (I walk a lot and walk through the bottoms of my galoshes. Holey galoshes are not good galoshes, so I like to be prepared.)
3.) They keep my feet dry and HAPPY.
4.) I rarely, if ever, have to worry about laces.
5.) PUDDLE STOMPING!
