Waterproof boots are made from corn

January 22nd, 2018 / By: / Out There

Your new rain boots could offer something quite distinctive; the smell of popcorn while doing chores or stomping through puddles. These nature-inspired, waterproof boots are made from rubber and recycled non-food-grade corn. They’re designed by Sebastian Thies and manufactured by the German company nat-2™ in Italy.

Besides the distinct smell of popcorn, the semi-transparent boots give off a certain glow and have a vintage look, the designer says. They’ll also keep feet dry and comfortable, just as a good “Wellie” should. The boots are manufactured in Italy.
