    Check out our review of the water-resistant rubber chukka boots.

    Promising review: "These men's boots look rugged in a grungy street-style way — which is a way I like very much! I've even worn them with my Morticia-ish midi black dress with a lace-up V-neck (it's only medium scandalous) and they worked in a surprising way. The rubber tongue and waterproof sole make stomping through all kinds of murky puddles almost fun. Even the puddles that *look* like they're a few inches deep but then you step into them and they reach up past the sole of your boot. Sigh. I'm sure these are also excellent for things like actual hiking (which I don't do, sorry every dude on Bumble who read Into the Wild in middle school) or muddy music festivals (which I've avoided for the past few years in my old age). For now, these look pretty great and keep my feet dry and safe from putrid city puddles, which, tbh, are more terrifying than the huge rats." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get them from Amazon for $54.99 (available in men's sizes 3.5–12).

    20. Vibrant Sam Edelman open-toe mules with a short block heel to comfortably wear and add a little spice to a simple outfit.

    22. Lace-up wedge sneakers with a soft, comfortable heel that'll last and last.

    Promising review: "I love these boots so much. I wore them with my wedding gown and they were super comfortable. I was able to be on my feet all evening with no problems. I put a small bottle of whiskey in the hidden pocket and when it was time for me to say 'I do' I reached down and pulled out the bottle to take a sip before answering. It was perfect. I love that I can wear them all the time now as well. I received a ton of compliments on the boots. They are stylish as well as comfortable." —Austin Mom
