I hate rain boots. They’re clumsy, uncomfortable, and bulky monsters that take up too much space in my closet. And as useful as they are supposed to be, I never know when to wear them. It seems every time I put them on the rain stops an hour later and I’m the only doofus wearing rain boots on a sunny day. As much as I’d like to give up rain boots forever, I don’t really want to move to Arizona and I’m tired of coming home with waterlogged sneakers. This means finding a compromise: waterproof shoes that can be considered normal shoes.
But luckily I found these Sam Edelman boots on Amazon. Matte boots are subtle and can easily pass for normal shoes. They are comfortable and, above all, definitely waterproof. I have flat feet so there is a little extra space between my foot and the top of the boot, but it doesn’t make walking difficult or painful. They have small tabs on the heels, which makes it easier to put on and take off the boots. Finally, I can wake up on a rainy day and not have a minor breakdown trying to figure out what shoes to wear.
Get them on Amazon for $17.60+ (available in sizes 4-13 and 10 styles).
