Take it from us: Having a solid pair of water-tested boots is a good investment. We understand that the traditional wellies aren’t going to land in your daily rotation unless you live in a place where it rains a lot (London, Seattle, etc.), but the good news is that waterproof footwear now comes in a variety of styles and aesthetics. If you’re not a tall, rubber boot kind of guy, you can opt for any number of alternatives, from rugged hiking boots to sleek Chelsea boots—all of them totally waterproof. But regardless of which you choose, the convenience of having a pair of boots made to withstand wet conditions can’t be overstated, whether you’re at home or your next great tropical adventure. Here, our pick for the 15 best rain boots for men.
Who says all rain boots have to be rubber? At first glance, you would never think these Chelsea boots could ever survive the rain. But the waterproof cow leather and the grippy Vibram soles make these boots tougher than you think, which means you could wear them anywhere, from the airport (easy-off for the TSA line) to a mild jungle hike.
Sizes available: 6.5–13.5 (including half sizes)
Notable features: Rubber upper, textile lining, padded insole, non-skid rubber outsole

Sizes available: 6–12
Notable features: Made of rubber, cleated soles, neutral color options
These waterproof Nubuck leather boots may not look like waterproof, rain-ready boots, but they are—and that’s exactly why we love them. There is a Gore-Tex waterproofing membrane on these boots that’ll keep you dry, but there is also a wear-everyday allure to them that means you can wear them wherever you're headed next, even if it’s not wet out.
Sizes available: 5–14.5 (including half sizes)
Notable features: Leather upper, textile lining, rubber soles, removable, cushioned insole with arch support
If the waterproof boots you’re looking for need to be more rugged in nature (say, if you’re heading on a hiking trip through the Costa Rican rainforest), go for

And we never have to worry about the bag slipping off our shoulders. You can take them anywhere for anything. And they now come in every shape, size, and color. Here, our edit of the 15 best men's crossbody bags.
