I happen to love rain footwear.  Don’t ask me why, but I have a large collection of various rubber boots, tall and short, and some rain shoes.  Styles change and here are some of the current models. I may have to add to my collection.

The snappy Hunter rubber boots we’ve featured in previous articles have a new twist – a collapsible version!  This is great news for those of us who travel but try to pack lightly.  Those enormous Hunter boots never made the cut.  The collapsible version is made in a lightweight, flexible natural rubber.  Easy to roll up and pop into your carry-on.  $140.

These Ilse Jacobsen rubber rain boots have a great style as well as being practical.  They come in tall or short, and in eleven colors.  $169.  Shipping is free.


These rubber mocs by L.L. Bean come in 10 different colors and are a shoe version of their famous hunting boot.


These Native slip-ons are made from the same synthetic material that makes Crocs so light and comfortable.  They have a 1” sole. They come in grey, black, kiwi and pink.  $45.00.


These Dirty Laundry ‘Machine’ rain boots are slightly military in style. They come in cherry, black and an animal print and are $79.99 with free shipping.


These Chinese Laundry ‘Rendition’ rain boots amuse me.  They come in camo or navy floral and are $47.99.


These Nomad Drizzle Rain Shoes are nice enough to wear in the rain and then for the rest of the day.  They come in four color combinations – orange/white, green/blue, black/white and blue/yellow and are $37.00 a pair.


I love this Capelli NY Polka Dot Rubber Rain Boot and it’s a great price!   $25.00.

Baffin Marsh Mid rain shoe is a pull-on style.  It has a rubber shell with a Neoprene inside. It also comes in red & black and is $59.99.
