During a Snowpocalypse, it doesn't matter what you've got on your feet as long as your toes stay dry and warm. But what about all the other typical Northeast crappy weather days? When the clouds are lightly spitting on you or everything is wet from snow melt, you've still gotta go to work, meet with clients, go on dates, and all the other normal life stuff that doesn't match up with bundling your feet like an arctic explorer. Here are 3 waterproof shoes ranging from casual to dressy that will keep you dry and stylin no matter where you're going.
Completely Casual- To wear with jeans I love these casual high-tops from Tretorn, they come in black, brown, and bonus, a two-tone grey and olive. Perfect for any casual look, they have a relaxed feel yet still more sophisticated than a traditional wellington rubber boot.
Work to Weekend- This versatile, classically styled suede waterproof Stanton boot by Cole Haan will pair well with chinos, casual slacks, and jeans. That's right, the business casual Trifecta. Available in dark brown and black.
Suiting and Special Events- This is the trickiest weather proofing category. You've got a black tie or formal event that calls for your sharpest James Bond attire but the conditions call for a Gordon's Fisherman Slicker? Boss Black solves the problem handsomely with these high shine waterproof shoes in dark burgundy, a color that goes with any darker suiting or slacks.
Now get out in that rainstorm and put your best foot forward!
