We’ve all been there. Or perhaps you in particular haven’t been there, but for those of us that tend to veer on the unlucky side, we’ve definitely had at least one experience where we weren’t responsible enough to check the forecast for the day, and ended up in a situation where the rain ruined our previously in perfect condition outfits and shoes. You get home and desperately try to save the items that you invested quite a bit of money on, only to find that they can’t be saved because they aren’t made with waterproof material. Damn. Another bites the dust. It’s a tough lesson to learn, but problems like these can be easily avoided by first checking the weather to make sure you are prepared and dressed appropriately, and by also having a few waterproof selections in your closet in the case of a rainy day.
Sure you could go with rain boots because that’s an automatic, but rain boots don’t always work with everything style wise. Plus, they can be a little clunky, sometimes they’re uncomfortable if you have to walk for an extended period of time, and depending on where you’re going, you may have to end up pulling a shoe switcheroo. So why not consider sneakers? Most sneakers that are waterproof are also ones that meant for outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, etc., and not only are these shoes highly technical, but they’ve even gotten more “casual” in their design over the years so it doesn’t always look like you’re wearing a “hiking sneaker.”
As always, we’ve got you covered with our selections. Below is our roundup of the best waterproof sneakers for the spring and summer seasons.
