Leave the Boots at Home!The Japanese brand ONFAdd created "rain socks" — a solution that will allow you to wear your favourite shoes outside in a variety of weather conditions. Since the rain socks are made of a natural rubber material called Elastic Latex, they will not tear even when worn repeatedly. ONFAdd aimed to raise $10,000 US dollars on Kickstarter to initiate production, and they surpassed that mark. Expect to see them soon.
