Promising review: "Wow! Great rain shoes! Feet are dry and shockingly fit... looking at them they seem super narrow, but slip the foot in and it’s dry feet in the monsoon. I wear a size 8 and ordered the size 8, comfy to wear around town or in office. Too many compliments, will definitely be ordering more 😍." —Amazon Customer

2. Brights Crocs for a glimmer of cheer on gray, dreary days.

Promising review: "I was looking for something that was easy to slip on and off, not too high, and easy to rinse the cow poo and mud off that I have to drudge through on our farm. They are apparently slug-approved too, as I found one in each one morning... barefoot putting them on. They feel very sturdy and have a thin, cushy sole. They are just what I hoped for." —M.

3. Majestic knee-highs (available in soooo many colors and patterns) at such a criminally low price, you can get a pair for each day of the week. For three weeks.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I love how bright and cheery these boots are, and they seem to be well-constructed, so far. They also fit in the calf — YAY! — which is somewhat unusual for me, because I have sturdy calves (17"), and many women's rain boots bunch up on 'em. They are a good fit. I purchased one size larger than my normal, because I plan to wear these with fleece boot liners and heavy socks, for an upcoming trip to the Oregon coast. The tide pools are calling me, but I know they're going to be C-O-L-D. ;) Nice boots, nice price. I'm pretty darned pleased with these!" —H. K. Rodman

4. Striped sneaks to wear instead of actual rain boots, you're the type of person who'd typically rather walk around with soaked toes than wear boots. Isn't compromise lovely?!

Promising review: "I'm a groomer's apprentice and needed some new boots to keep my feet dry during work. I have huge calves so finding traditional rain boots that fit them while not being too huge on my feet is a challenge, plus I think the style of normal rain boots is hideous. While browsing Amazon I discovered these. I've owned Rocket Dog sneakers back in my high school days, so I decided to take a chance with these and see how they feel and hold up. They're comfortable and super 'bouncy' when you step, which is alright with me. My feet are a little on the wide size and these don't feel like they're too tight. I also have a problem with my legs and feet swelling so these are perfect because of the laces (I can loosen and tighten as needed)." —Adrianna MiccichePrice: $27.94+ Rating: 4.2/5 Sizes: 6–9 Colors: two stripe combos

5. Sturdy footwear that'll take you from porch to chicken coop to field to wherever your soggy day takes you.

Promising review: "I don't typically buy boots or shoes online but I gambled with these. Must say the color, style, and material quality was really good with these boots. I wear them with socks and feel comfortable. Can drive with them on. Wore at elementary school and worked just great, meaning my feet felt OK inside or for playground duty. Design is fun and the overall color is attractive." —knitter2Price: $33.83+ Rating: 4.8/5 Sizes: 6–11 Colors: eight patterns

7. Anti-slip booties that can more than pull their weight *and* your weight on slick sidewalks and tile floors.

Promising review: "I accidentally bought the gray boots because they were the default color, but I like them better than the black! It is a taupe-ish gray so they are really versatile and the elastic insert shows up more. They taper in/hug the arch of my foot, which means they don't let my foot slide around like boxy boots do. Nice fit, great for 'soccer mom' mornings." —Amazon CustomerPrice: $20.77+ Rating: 3.8/5 Sizes: 6–9.5 Colors: also in black

8. Fierce heels worthy of sunny days, too.

Promising review: "Exactly what I wanted. Tired of flat boots being my only option for weather boots and am used to heels and platforms. If you are used to that, then these are just right. If you don't wear heels, especially with platforms, you probably should pass on this style. I typically wear an 8.5 but my Sorels are all 9s. I bought a 9 in this and as usual, the 9 is best for me. There is enough room for socks that are not super thin. I wish the weather would change so I can wear them out instead of just walking around the house in them! Just because they have heels doesn't make them dressy boots but they look really good with skirts and dresses. Really happy with my choice. These are bitchin'!" —Nancy HolidayPrice: $69.98+ Rating: 4.1/5 Sizes: 7.5–11 Colors: two color combos

9. Floral ankle grazers as a cheerful option when you're feeling totally blah about peeling yourself out of bed.

Promising review: "Best purchase ever! I bought a pair for my mother-in-law and couldn't resist buying a pair for myself! I usually wear a 9.5–10 in normal shoes (a 9.5 in Nike runners) so I ordered a 9. They fit great for a rain boot. A little extra wiggle room, but was easily fixed by adding an extra insole. Really comfortable, spent the day shopping and my feet didn't even hurt. The colors and pattern were great quality. Absolutely love them and I will definitely be buying more!" —Rookie_cookiePrice: $29.23+ Rating: 4.3/5 Sizes: 5–10 Colors: 14 patterns

Promising review: "I love these shoes. They were perfect for what I needed for my cruise to Alaska. I was able to wear them around all day whether I was shopping or kayaking. Very well-rounded shoe.

12. Glossy Columbias with a riding boot-inspired silhouette nice enough to wear to the office — at least 'til you can change into dress shoes at your desk.

Promising review: "These are great rain boots! I wanted a pair of functional rain boots, not just something that looks cute. I spend a lot of time outside with my dog and in my garden, so I needed something that would withstand rain and snow, and also something with good sole traction to keep me from slipping and sliding around. These boots do both, and they are comfortable and fit really nice with enough room for my thick wool socks. If you are searching for a pair of tough, good quality rain boots, these are an awesome choice." —Amazon CustomerPrice: $39.93+ Rating: 4.4/5 Sizes: 5–12 Colors: 10

13. Floral stripes perfect for someone who isn't afraid of mixing and matching patterns — truly ones of life's underrated pleasures.

Promising review: "I've been longing for some brightly colored wellies awhile but didn't want to spend high-dollar prices on Hunter or other such brands. I didn't want a cheap looking slick/shiny pair. These have a matte finish and a nice little brand placard at the top front of each boot. They are so cute and I plan to use them in the winter also with inserts. Fit nicely, too!" —Earl Grey and YellowPrice: $16.70+ Rating: 4.2/5 Sizes: 5–10 Colors: 55 patterns and color combos

14. Olive laceups so you can pack light for your next adventure.

Promising review: "I really liked these a lot. I bought them for a backpacking trip through Europe in the spring because I expected lots of rain, but wanted to be able to use them as my tennis shoes, too. (Can't pack very many shoe options on these things!) They worked great and were super cute. Even trekking through cow fields in Ireland, they kept my feet clean and dry while everyone else left wet and stinky. The only downside was that I wore them with shorts/capris a couple days and where the rubber met my shin it would rub until a little raw and painful. So basically, wear with tall socks or jeans. Otherwise they were great." —Tara StoicescuPrice: $34.99+ Rating: 4.3/5 Sizes: 6, 11 Colors: also in black

Fit so comfy and I do have wider feet 😆 Definitely recommend for rain/snow boot! They are chunky but I do not mind. It fits my leg great (I've got some meat on my calves) only thing is if you don't like how chunky looks, this is not the boot for you." —Michelle MiraldoPrice: $74.23+ Rating: 4.4/5 Sizes: 5–12 Colors: eight

Promising review: "These boots are awesome! They are not only cute, but practical at the same time. I ordered fleece rain boot liners for them so I can wear them in the snow. Now my feet are warm and dry and I don't have to worry about the snow (which being in Illinois, there is a lot of!) ruining the boot. Love that I can wear these in all seasons. Unlike my Uggs, which I love and they are warm but snow and water are a no no with them. These are pretty narrow, though. My foot is not wide at all and they fit me pretty snug." —D.
