Step 1: What You'll Need

To repair your rain boots, first you will need a hot glue gun and some duct tape. And, of course, your rain boots with any rips and tears!

Step 2: Glue Down Any Holes

I recently found some rips in my rain boots, and so, the easiest way to repair them is with a generous amount of hot glue so it will stay in place. You can also, if it sounds easier for you, use E6000 adhesive, since both glues have a strong bond.

Step 3: Finish Off

Now, you can seal your newly fixed rain boots with a few small strips of duct tape.

Step 4: Good As New

Now, you're set to walk in the rain with your newly repaired wellies!

    Why don't you wear your leaky wellies during the warm period? I do so and believe me, it's so funny walking in squelchy boots. The noise from inside my wellies is great
