Home Below Deck Rain? Check.

Rain? Check.

by Andrew Hoge

It’s that time of year again, when we trade our summer footwear for rain-ready soles. But, as the selections below suggest, the seasonal swap doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style.

1. UGG Harrison Tall Rain Boots

If the mention of ‘UGG’ conjures up memories of the mid-2000s sheepskin boot craze, I’m here to tell you to take a second look. The Australian-based company has since expanded its offerings, including this ultra-chic, waterproof, tall leather rain boot complete with seam-sealed construction and stylish buckle detail.

2. Dolce Vita Thundr H20 Chelsea Rain Boot

These glossy Chelsea-style rain boots come in three neutral colors, which means they look fabulous with a range of ensemble— from jeans to formal wear. The chunky lug sole provides stability, and the elastic detail around the ankle allows you to pull them on and off with ease. ($85; nordstrom.com)

3. Muck Boot Originals Pull-On Mid-Boots

These stylish Chelsea boots from REI are completely waterproof, making them ideal for days filled with splashing waves and unexpected rain. Not only are they fun to look at—that bow detail is a nice touch—but they also feature polyurethane footbeds with moisture-wicking and antimicrobial memory foam to keep your feet dry and fresh. ($110; rei.com)

4. Columbia Men’s Trailstorm™ Mid Waterproof Shoe

At first glance, you might think these streamlined soles are a pair of trendy high tops, but leave it to Columbia Sportswear to get them all terrain ready. The design features seam-sealed construction and excellent traction, along with advanced Adapt Trax™ technology that makes them perfect for transitioning from the marina to your pilothouse. ($110; columbia.com)

5. XTRATUF 6″ Ankle Deck Boots

You can’t beat a classic: These aptly named deck boots are the perfect solution for unexpected weather. Not only are they super comfortable, but they are also made with thoughtful tech that keeps your feet warm, fights odors, and chevron rubber outsoles for excellent traction. ($94.95-$99.95; available at rei.com)
