These Brands Will Change the Way You See Rain Boots

Rainy days are fun, but often only as long as you're safely indoors—preferably while you're lounging in the comfort of your own home with a tea in hand and a good book nearby. However, if you absolutely need to brave this tricky weather, your shoe choice might be your biggest concern. Rain boots are of course key, but they don't always earn high marks for both style and protection.

The brands ahead are the exceptions. They create rain boots that are not only highly practical but also downright chic, so the next time your weather app shows you clouds and rain, you'll be more than ready. Okay, now let's shop.
