Rain, sleet, and/or snow -conscious won’t slow you down this time of year, with stylish footwear that we’ve found from Hunter, Bogs, and Sperry Top-Sider to keep you in motion, and regardless of the precipitation situation.
Hunter, the originator of the classic Hunter Welly, continues to update its extensive wet weather collection season after season. Most recently, Hunter took part in an awesome collaboration with rag & bone and together the companies gave birth to a stylish, collection of short and tall wet weather footwear. Ranging from $265-$300, Hunter + rag & bone is comprised of deep neutral colors such as green, navy, and burgundy. This collection appears to be quintessentially British while simultaneously exuding a trendy, metropolitan appeal. Additionally, Hunter has a wide variety of short, tall, matte and gloss rain boots in almost every color ranging from $100-$200.
The Pacific Northeast is no stranger to wet and cold weather. Bogs, an industrial shoe company based in the Pacific Northeast, began its journey in hopes of providing its consumers with casual and industrial all weather footwear. Prices at Bogs range from $65-$100 and the Bogs collection runs the gamut from a classic tall rain boot to a clog-style rubber shoe. Whether you’re gardening, spending a day out on the farm or planning a hike through the snow, Bogs has got you covered.
Originator of the scuff-free boat shoe, Sperry Top-Sider has been a proponent of versatile all-weather footwear for men and women since 1935. Placing an emphasis on classic, preppy, nautical style, Sperry Top-Sider has continued to produce innovative, comfortable and stylish all weather foot wear with prices ranging from $100-$200. The Sperry Top-Sider Sable Waterproof boot is a perfect example, the boot takes on an equestrian look through its tall shape and rounded toe. The boot itself is made of skid proof and water proof genuine leather, making this the perfect shoe to wear to work, on a lunch date or a night out (even in our current, slushy, stormy weather). Additionally, the Highland Snow Boot is a no frills, compact version of the typical snow boot. A little more casual than the Sable Waterproof Boot, the Highland Snow Boot is perfect for sledding, long walks and winter adventures.
