Rain Boots That Don't Look Like Rain Boots
October 9, 2008
It’s that time of year… the air is chilly, the leaves are turning and while snow is (hopefully!) still a few months away, the rain will arrive very soon. And if you’re like me, crossing the street on a drizzly day poses a major hazard to my cute fall shooties. For better or worse, funky rain boots have reappeared this season: metallics, stripes, and bright colors galore. But for those of us who don't want to look like we stole our kid sister's galoshes as we ran out the the door, there are plenty of waterproof pairs that are disguised as stylish go-to boots.
Here are a few of my favorites:
This pair of Sperry Top Sider Low Boots ($65) hits on the sock bootie trend we told you about earlier this week. Also totally waterproof and lined with fleece, they're much cuter than other casual rain boot alternatives. And the low anke boot style means they can be worn with most anything.
And my favorite, the Avery by Aquatalia by Marvin K ($425). Stylish and funky, they’d look perfect with tight jeans as I dash through the puddles. Gotta love the faux fur and side toggles that make these some grown-up rain boots!
Which ones would you get? Tell us in the comment section below… because I think you already know which ones I’ll be ordering!
