The perfect rain boots do exist. These comfortable, stylish pairs will keep you dry on the wettest days.
A good rain boot should have plenty of tread to prevent slipping, comfortable cushioning to support your feet—but not so much that it's hard to wear a thick pair of socks with them—and most importantly, waterproof material to keep you snug and dry during a downpour. Below, we rounded up the best rain boots for women that are actually cute (read: you won't feel the need to change out of them the second you get to the office), including affordable pairs that won't break the bank.
Hunter Original Play Waterproof Rain Bootie
You can't go wrong with Hunter rain boots: From sleek Chelsea boots to high-gloss taller styles, the brand has no shortage of classic boots that you're guaranteed to wear for years to come. We particularly love these rain booties, which boast a trendy low wedge heel and a slew of fun colors, like candy floss (pictured).
Everlane The Rain Boot
Everlane's rain boot developed an instant cult following when it launched earlier this year. The custom-designed cushioned insole promises comfort with every step, and the colors are extremely versatile (from basic black to trendy toffee to the light pink hue that's pictured here).
Tretorn Women's Lina Winter Rain Boot
Like Hunter, Tretorn offers an impressive range of rain boots. This style is just right for those fall and winter days when you're likely to experience an unpleasant combination of rain, sleet, and snow. Plus, the shearling interior will keep feet cozy when temps drop.
