    Promising review: "I work in a laboratory at a hospital and having a reliable waterproof shoe is a must. They’re super easy to clean, comfortable to wear all day, and stylish. I get compliments on them even after weeks of having them. I loved them so much that I actually ordered another pair! It’s so nice to have a shoe that doesn’t freeze your toes or get them wet in the winter, rainy days, or unpredictable environments." —Payton S

    Get them from Vessi for $135 (available in sizes 5–11 and five colors).

    Promising review: "I bought these for two trips, Ireland and Sweden. In Ireland, it rained every other day and in Sweden it rained 90% of the time. Usually, I would try to step around shallow puddles but inadvertently I would step in one or two. My feet were never wet. The shoes fit my normal size. They were fashionable (I don’t want to scream 'I’m a tourist'). They look like sweater material. I waited to write the review until I had tested them out. I had a couple days of steady rain with no wetness. The rest of the time it was drizzle but still, dry. Very happy with this purchase, great travel shoes for rainy environments." —Ultraapril

    Get them from Amazon for $79.90+ (available in sizes 5–12 and six colors).

    14. A pair of waterproof leather flip-flops that'll keep you stylish and supported whether you're braving the rainy weather on a quick trip to the deli, or out for a beach or boating day.

    15. Blondo waterproof ankle boots so you can throw on an all-black outfit to match the vibe of a rainy day, yet still make it to the art museum and give your look a pop of color in the process.

    16. Ankle-length rain boots with a slip-resistant tread that will hold up in the outdoors when it's raining and in the garden on mushy spring days like it's their job, because it is!
