Consider rainshoes a great warm-weather alternative to more classic rainboots that climb up the knee. Since most city dwellers require waterproof footwear to help them navigate around puddles, tall boots are better left to those in the country trekking through the mud.
These lightweight alternatives to more traditional knee-high versions are easy to tote around, making it simple to pack a pair in a tote bag if the weather appears unpredictable. They’re also easy to store in a desk drawer so you are prepared for an unexpected shower.
Practical can also be fashionable. Rainshoes from brands including Chooka, Sloggers, Cougar and Original Muck Boot Co. come in a wide range of novelty prints that include colorful flowers and polka dots. Since trench coats continue to be a key spring outerwear trend, match a pair of rainshoes to your favorite color raincoat.
Plus, rainshoes don’t have to break the bank — there are lots of options under $100. Click through the gallery to see more.
