where to get the rain boots?

Hi All,

Walking around in Oslo with soggy jeans is not too fun after a few days. Anyone have any suggestions for where to go in Oslo to get some basic rubber boots to keep one's feet dry?

Tusen takk!

Try one of the sports shops - G-Sport, XXL. Sportshuset.

Already in town, Sunshine?

Hope you are doing well.

You can also try shoe shops or shops for work clothes (fisherman style, solid boots).

1) XXL - just outside Kirkeristen tram stop (downtown)

2) G-sport - several places in town - see www.g-sport.no (choose "Butikker" and then "Oslo")

3) Sportshuset www.gresvig.no/asa/templates/Artikkel.aspx…

Cheaper options could be Europris or Coop Obs (actually I'm not too much into boot prices)!

Some places in Oslo is nice, but the most beautiful parts of Norway is the coast line between Bergen and Ålesund and the Nordland coast line in Northern Norway - so you have to take some trips during your time in Oslo.

If you have more questions about Oslo and Norway don't hesitate to ask...

Thank you so much, Karsten, for the good advice and travel tips. I did find a pair of hopefully good basic rain boots in Majorstua. This will surely help around town and possibly even with those excursions you suggested!

Tusen takk everyone!
