Aquatalia Rhumba Review:
One of our readers, Bobbi Jo bought the Aquatalia Rhumba boots, after we posted about them on our Facebook page. Later, she left a comment and told us that she is “obsessed” with them now. She said:
“[I] love the boots! I’ve worn them the past two days and they’ve been very comfortable. I walk a lot at work and we get a ton of snow here. The suede does great with water. I’m usually a size 7.5 and I need a 7 with Aquatalia. But, that didn’t affect me this time because I had ordered the Aquatalia Rae booties before, as a close replacement for the Royal booties. I would definitely recommend their boots and booties”.
