How To Choose Rain Boots


Go to top.

Some people try to get away with wearing their regular shoes during the rainy season. But leaving your feet damp and cold can make you vulnerable to certain fungal infections. Women face an even higher risk or urinary tract infections when their feet are cold and wet regularly. For these reasons, it’s very important to wear the proper footwear for the elements. To encourage yourself to put on your rain boots, get a pair that will match most of your clothes. Also, know that you should buy rain boots half a size or one full size larger than you would normally buy boots. You want to have enough room in the leg area to tuck in thick pants.

If you do live in a particularly wet climate where one must wear rain boots every day, make sure yours have good arch support. Wearing shoes with poor or no arch support on a daily basis can lead to back problems. If you live in a city that gets so cold that ice forms on the sidewalks, leaving them slippery, it’s very important that your rain boots have a good tread on the bottom to prevent falls. Some even have a cozy fleece lining to keep your legs extra warm on the coldest days, as well as a tightening buckle on the side to prevent chilly air from getting in.

Some rain boots can feel so heavy that they slow down your gait, so consider a lightweight material, especially if your main form of transportation is your own feet. Pulling rain boots on and off can be exhausting, so get a pair with small handles or loops that make it easier to get them on. It’s no secret that feet can get rather smelly, so look for boots made from breathable material to prevent sweating. Some have the added benefit of odor resistant fabric on the inside.

How To Take Care Of And Enjoy Your Rain Boots


Go to top.

Rain boots are usually made from rubber, which certainly has its positive qualities, but is also very easy to spot any scratches or marks on. If you do get a scuff on your boots, simply drop a little bit of oil (olive oil will work) on them, and buff them out with a soft cloth. If you like your boots to stay shiny, try this secret trick; put some rubbing compounds for vehicles on them.

Rubber has one other downfall, if exposed to too much heat, its quality can degrade. So store your rain boots out of direct sunlight. You can even keep them inside of a large paper bag for extra protection. To help the leg areas keep their shape, stuff balled up socks, t-shirts or newspapers inside of them during off-seasons. As for your comfort, put on double or thick socks. This can prevent rain boots from sliding around when you walk and reduce the possibility of blisters.

Wear knee-high socks, or ones that at least meet the top of the rain boots. The friction of these shoes can easily pull ankle socks right off of your feet, leaving you nearly barefoot in your boots, exposing your feet to bacteria in the shoes. Socks with a strong, elastic grip will also stay on better. If you live in an area that is rainy and warm at the same time, you may be tempted to wear your rain boots with shorts or a dress. But don’t, because water can get inside of the boots.

The History Of Rain Boots


Go to top.

One often hears the term “Wellington” when people talk about rain boots. This was one of the very first names for this type of footwear. In the 19th century, the boots were primarily for military use. The British Empire hired a German troop of soldiers called the Hessians and as a gift, they gave the Duke of Wellington a pair of tall, tasseled leather boots. The Duke loved his boots so much that he wore them constantly, and they eventually came to be known as Wellingtons. The Duke, however, had his personal shoemaker make a few adjustments to the boots that we still see today, like removing the tassels and making the leg area more slender.

Wellingtons were not made from rubber until 1853 when Hiram Hutchinson received the patent for the vulcanization of natural rubber. Hutchinson didn’t create this technique, but rather he purchased the patent from Charles Goodyear who had been using it to make tires. Wellingtons quickly transformed from footwear for English royalty, to common farm gear. French farmers who worked in wet conditions began wearing them regularly in the fields. Farmers popularized this style of footwear in the more civilian areas, and soon enough, Wellingtons were very popular in urban areas around Europe.

By the 20th century, Wellingtons had taken the United States by storm. But Americans veered away from the traditional dark green hue that the British wore and started making rain boots in all sorts of colors and patterns. Americans mostly just refer to the shoes as rain boots now. Meanwhile, in South Africa, rain boots are often referred to as gumboots by the miners who wear them.

#8.Tommy Hilfiger Women's Renegade Rain Boot, Black, 8 M US


I really love these rain boots. I have them when I'm in the yard playing with my 15-month-old and also when I'm walking in the city on a rainy or gloomy day. I wouldn't hike in them or walk far though since when I did walk a lot in the city my feet started to ache. And then I do have an extra supportive soul inside. I think I will try to wear it with another soul with even more support or just with more cushion. Without any soul, the boot is just flat as rain boots usually are. But It is not a hiking rain boot.

#7.Sperry Top-Sider Women's Pelican III Rainboot, Black, 11 M US


Super cute and comfortable! The top is a bit wide for my legs and I mistook the buckle at the top as a way to adjust but you can't really tighten them because the boot would wrinkle. They are kind of fuzzy inside and fit great as shoes.. excellent support. They fit as expected. I wear an 8 1/2 or 9 and I got a 9 to accommodate thicker socks. When I walk, I feel the top of the boot go against my leg which I'm not used to with form fitting boots, but the quality of these is amazing. The color is a flat black with not much shine. I am very happy with this purchase! These will last me a long time.

#3.Joules Women's Evedon Rain Boot, Black, 7 M US


Thankfully I read all the reviews and ordered a size down. I wear an 8 in round toe shoes and ordered a 7 in these. I have a pair of Hunters and those are a size 8. So, it's definitely a remarkable difference in this brand. I wore them for the first time pretty much most of the day with trouser socks and there was plenty of width room to spare. I have a thin foot so a thicker sock would have been fine, too. They are a little tricky to get off. A bit of pulling and I have thin calves as well. It's just the nature of the beast of boots when there's no zipper to help. I did notice that when you walk there is a bend in the boot that takes place and does hit your shin for sure. Left a dent, yes dent in me but not a bruise like somebody else posted. Received compliments from children and adults. They are unique and cute.

#1.Hunter Womens Original Back Adjustable Black Rain Boot - 7


I received these boots in two days thanks to Prime shipping. I have to admit, I have never tried these on in person and went strictly off of the reviews. I read several that said that the boots ran big. I am a size 8 and decided to go with a 7 (which I never do). I am SO glad I did. They fit perfect with room for a thicker sock. They are super cute and perfect for how I want to wear them. The back is adjustable which will be great depending on the pants/jeans I wear these with. Very pleased!!
