When the weather is wet, wearing clunky rain boots isn’t always ideal for every situation. Especially if you live somewhere that gets a lot of rain, slush or snow. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your sense of style for waterproof comfort.

We pulled our picks from respected outdoor brands like Keen, Sorel and Bogs. Each style is engineered to keep feet warm and dry without the bulkiness of rain boots.
