After at least nine years of faithful service, I had to retire my dear pink galoshes. They served me well at UCSB during many bike rides to and from campus in the pouring rain. They were invaluable on wet camping trips to the coast. They even helped my feet stay dry on a few visits to the snow.
Alas, they have a hole and can keep me dry no longer.
It's okay though, because I just bought these.
They're not pink, but they are covered in elephants.
