Nokia is best known for its cell phones, IT products, and telecommunication services but in the 1960's, one of its signature products was rubber boots. The acceptance of rubber boots as a fashion staple is as inexplicable as Nokia's ascension from rubber manufacturer to global consumer IT product giant. Regardless, I am thankful that rubber boots now come in all styles and sizes because they are an indispensable part of my winter uniform. Do you own rain boots? Do you find them to be as functional as I do?
