As the weather gets colder, rainy days become harder to withstand. The winds are fiercer and normal rain boots are too thin to keep feet warm. To protect your toes under these conditions, there are waterproof boots complete with cozy features like fleece and fur lining for optimal toastiness. They also include anti-slip soles and dry-to-wet traction. We’ve rounded up some of those here to make your shopping a breeze. These trusted pairs from brands like Ugg and Sperry are also cushioned so you’ll stay comfortable.
