Waterproof yet stylish boots - please help me find some!
Desperately want some waterproof (or at least highly water resistant) casual boots. I’ve tried Sorel (too wide for my feet) and a selection of Barbour, Timberland, Ariat. Was thinking some sort of Chelsea boot but they seem to slip off. Prefer zip to laces.
I’ve got fairly narrow feet and am only a size 3.5/4. Open minded as to length of boot but want to be able to wear with slim/skinny jeans and possibly also tights and skirts. I’m short too - 5’3”
Do you lovely lot have any fabulous suggestions of where I should look now please?? I mostly shop online but I do have some shops nearby.
Thank you for the suggestions... will look into them and report back! I want ones that are quite smart I think... but they need to be comfy too! Some of the proper waterproof ones look a bit too ‘hiker’ for me.
Have you tried Timberland? Their Chelseas are only pull on, but some of the long boots might suit. I have a pair bought around ten years ago that are waterproof leather and still going strong - just need the occasional polish.
Or these from Rockport (size 3.5 is in stock and very reasonably priced). I actually got the knee length version of these a few years ago and wore them constantly from tramping through snow in NYC to typhoons in Hong Kong. Totally waterproof, very comfy and smart enough to wear out/to the office. I would buy more if I could ever find them - and would have bought these ankle ones right now but they don't have my size (sob!)
I just bought some Tuffa rodeo boots, and I love them. I had Tuffa country boots before and they lasted for years - and I wore them constantly, was wading through mud in them, and really didn't take care of them at all. I would always recommend Tuffa, they are really good quality.
