Just in time for the rainy season (and for any more snow that Mother Nature has in store for us), the perfect rain boot has arrived at Chameleon Clothing (130 N. Oak Park Avenue).

If you’ve been searching for an affordable, high-quality pair of rain boots, look no further. Tretorns can finally be found right here in town. The Swedish company has been making stylish and functional footwear for 120 years, so you can expect a durable and resilient boot perfect for urban or rural landscapes.

Chameleon Clothing brings us two classic styles for men and women. Here are the stats:

The Tretorn Emelie, for women, is inspired by traditional riding boots. This is a chic women's rubber boot perfect for the city and the barn. 100% waterproof natural rubber. PVC free with microfleece lining, textile sockliner, and a rubber outsole.

The Tretorn Stråla slip on men's ankle rubber boot is a modern and practical galosh. 100% waterproof natural rubber. PVC free with microfleece lining, textile sockliner, and rubber outsole. Reflective detail at back for visibility.

Soon, you'll be able to find the go-with-anything sneakers from Tretorn at Chameleon. For prices or more information, visit or shop online at

Stop back next Friday for another Fabulous Find or Style Inspiration post. See you around town and in the shops!
