Waterproof Footwear That Can Double For The Office

One glance out the window, and you predict a commute filled with puddle jumping and slippery sidewalks.

When wet mornings cut into your fashion plan for the week, it's essential to have shoes that can seamlessly transition from the streets to your office. Pulling this off requires footwear that balances waterproof technology with a professional style for all workplace energies.

Designers are finding innovative ways to incorporate waterproof leather, rubber, and fabric coatings that keep your feet dry and comfortable. Rubber outsoles protect against slipping on slick pavement, and thick lining keep your arches warm and supported on the dreariest of days.



Waterproof office footwear is also best when you feel confident pairing it with your favorite outfit. To help, we've gathered several styles, ranging from heeled booties to outdoor shoes, that can withstand a deluge of precipitation and a 9 a.m. board meeting.
