I'm so glad you asked that question, because I have the same question.

My fiance bought me two rainboots for the winter holidays.  One pair is gray with white skulls and black trim.

The other are solid green, somewhere between "avocado" and "spring" greens.  I felt so proud of myself when he said "you're so crafty, you can make those superrad!"

Yeah, if only I knew the best kind of paint.  I'm thinking maybe krylon's paint for plastics, or maybe their "latex" paint.

I've never actually tried it, but I'd guess acrylic. It seems to stick to just about everything and never come off. You might need to prepare the surface in some way before painting, though. I hear light sanding will do the trick.
Maybe do a bit of an experiment on some wee kid boots, cause they'd be loads cheaper?

Wow, it seems like everyone is wanting to revamp some gumboots! I have been yearning for some crazy gumboots to wear on those awesome rainy days...

Tell us how they turn out?
