6 Waterproof Shoes to Shop That Are Comfortable All Day Long

No need to step into a pair of heavy rain boots to keep feet dry these days. Increasingly, footwear companies are offering innovative waterproof alternatives that include easy-to-wear clogs for women or classic oxfords for men.

One important thing to remember when shopping for waterproof shoes: Don’t confuse the term with water-resistant. While many shoes are seam-sealed to keep out water, others simply feature materials that repel water and are more suited for wear in a light rain.

You can get the most bang for your buck by reading any hangtags carefully that offer details about a shoe’s construction and waterproofing features. A more expensive shoe will likely have more elevated features.

Here, FN has selected a range of styles that will keep you fashionably dry.
