Let’s consider rain boots a necessary fashion evil. You sort of don’t know what you’re missing until you invest in a proper pair of them and can actually traipse around in the rain, to and from class or dinner with your friends, and not have soggy socks or worse, wide-legged jean bottoms. But because they’re usually rubber and built to be pulled over bulky bottoms, they’re usually kind of ridiculous looking. Like, you need to bring a change of shoes for once you get inside ridiculous, which then creates the problem of how to carry your “inside” shoes, and on a rainy Monday morning, who has time for that? Entirely too much brain power is required for this sort of planning.

Are there bigger problems in the world than choosing a stylish pair of rain boots you won’t feel like a rubber ducky (or an 18th-century farmer) in? Of course. But listen, proper rain gear, especially in the depths of spring in most parts of the country is up there with some of the greater issues in the world. Fine, it’s not really, but it can feel like it sometimes, right? These rain boots are all fully functional and fashionable this season, so you never have to deal with this weighted rainy day quandary again.
