As the school year is slowly coming to an end, I am reminded of how trendy high schools are. Through the past few years, I learned that a young lady in high school needs only two pair of shoes: Rainbows and Uggs. If you are not already familiar with these two shoes, get comfy and I'll explain (with pictures).
Rainbows are flip-flops; however, they're not just any flip-flops, and you can't have just any type. You have to have the Rainbow Leathers. Also, it is important to know Rainbows are not just for the ladies; many of the gents sport Rainbows as well. At the top of The Girl's holiday list this past year was the coveted Rainbows. At $50 a pair, it's easy to see why I didn't run right out and get them for her! Luckily for her, her grandmother did!
I did try on The Girl's Rainbows after another mother told me she loved them. They are really comfy. I have since caved and purchased my own. The Boy wants them as well. None of us has the double stack ones, but the regular ones are plenty comfy.
The students wear their Rainbows nearly every day during the spring and fall. They even wear them in the winter, as long as it is not TOO cold. When it is too cold, they wear their Uggs. The Uggs are far more popular among the ladies than the gents; I am not certain I've ever seen a young man sporting Uggs.
Recently, I was in another part of the country and, while I noticed the prevalence of flip-flops, I also noticed the shoes of choice were not Rainbows. I began to wonder if this is not a local thing...
