Features to Look for in a Pair of Rain Boots
Here comes the rain again. Make sure your feet stay dry with these waterproof looks.
If raindrops keep falling on your head, buy an umbrella. If they keep falling on your legs and feet, get a pair of rain boots! Whether you want a short or tall shaft, something classic or sleek, there’s a wet-weather solution for you.
Duck boots are perfect for anyone with wide feet. As a general rule, rubber takes a long time to break in and can feel narrow. The leather-fleece-rubber combo of duck boots has more give and is roomier than Wellington or Chelsea boots.
When someone says “rain boots,” most people picture a rubber Wellington. Rubber is durable and flexible, and will stand up to mud, dirt and any other unwanted invaders. On the other hand, it won’t stretch, so it’s imperative to make sure your boots fit properly. Your toes should clear the top of the shoe comfortably when it’s on, and you should be able to lift your heel easily (but not too much). If you have to choose between sizing up and down, go up and wear an extra pair of socks, which will add comfort too.
If you’ll be running around and need to look presentable, consider a style that you don’t need to change out of. A classic black Chelsea rain boot is subdued and sleek enough to go from home to office to work drinks or dinners.
