Do you wear wellies in the city when it's pouring?

Because I do but no one else seems to - they are all getting wet shoes. I do look a bit silly though, especially as the wellies have butterflies on.

noobie I have never associated wellies with sweat!

I do have a good pair of waterproof winter boots, but they're fur lined and far too warm for a rainy summer's day. Naoko my wellies are not even slightly uncomfortable. I think I just secretly like wearing wellies and being able to splash through puddles grin

I've seen lots of very smart women wearing wellies in central London- but they are the shiny black patent type a bit like Hunters, but not IYSWIM.

Do their feet go 'squelch' as they walk?

My feet don't get squelchy or sweaty after a couple of hours in wellies noobie - do yours? I know they're not breathable like leather but they're fine for a while...

Yes I do, when I am headed to work and it is rele wet I dont want my socks getting soaked. I then change into a pair of flats when I get there.
