If you want boots that will absolutely keep water out but don't look like a clunky rain boot, these are your best bet. Style-wise, the chunky gold chain gives this pair an unexpected edge. Meanwhile, the mid heel can withstand the most torrential downpours and a molded tread offers solid traction so you're not slipping and sliding around all day.

These boots come in a variety of patterns and colors, from classy black-and-white houndstooth to a more nautical navy print. The fitted shaft won't make those with narrow feet feel like your feet are swimming in them, and the mid-calf height won't overwhelm short frames.

These sloggers are top-notch in comfortability, and over 7,000 Amazon reviewers seem to agree. They're made from completely recyclable materials that are 100 percent waterproof, but the best part is the insole that molds to your arches to cradle your feet while you walk. If they get dirty, simply take the insoles out and toss them into the dryer.
