How to keep your feet dry without looking like you’re ready to work a cranberry bog.
This article originally appeared on TravelandLeisure.com.
Nothing puts a (quite literal) damper on a day out in a new city quite like a pair of soggy sneakers. Sure, we’re all about cute, comfortable footwear, but when a downpour is in your future, nothing suits better than a solid pair of rain boots—and contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to sacrifice style for dry socks.
Our favorites have distinct personalities and a suite of decorative features, from florals to fringe to leopard prints. They come tall and short, fun and sophisticated, tied and buckled.
Below, find our favorite goulashes for your travels—puddle jumping optional.
