16 Waterproof Shoes That Aren't Rain Boots

Rain, rain go away. Come again another day (but if possible, please come back during a time when we’re fully prepared?) Let’s face it: Nothing’s worse than heading outside to brave the stormy weather while also wearing the wrong pair of shoes. No one likes sloshing around in soaked sneakers and socks all day, especially if you have a long, rough commute that requires way more walking than desired.
But before you dig through your closet and unearth those bulky rain boots, now is the perfect time to consider taking a more fashionable approach towards staying dry (snow is definitely in our future). Whether a trendy patent bootie or a water-resistant sneaker, knee-high rubber Wellies aren’t your only option when the skies open up. Here's 17 that work for the craziest of weather (and look good in the process).
