16 Stylish Waterproof Shoes For Wearing Year-Round
Wet feet squishing around in soggy shoes are a top-five fear of mine. But when spring and summer rains hit, the last thing I want to wear is a pair of rain boots, so I did my due diligence to find the most stylish waterproof shoes for wearing year-round. As an adult woman, galoshes can make me feel a little childish. Cute rain boots exist — don’t get me wrong — I just prefer a chic bootie. So, when I want to wear waterproof boots, I go with this pair of rubber pair of leopard printed Chelsea booties. Not only do they keep my feet dry, they also look pretty badass with a pair of black skinnies.
When I feel like taking a classic approach to rainy day style, I grab a pair of flats. The only issue is that my regular pair of ballet flats has zero protection against deep, dirty New York puddles. Enter adorable waterproof flats — some even have bow and jeweled details! And the best part is that they’re versatile enough to wear with your favorite dress. Since they’re so stylish, no one would even suspect that they’re not your regular pair of flats.
