16 Rain Boots That Are Actually Cute

rain or shine

Although the weather is getting warmer and snow seems to be a thing of the past, that doesn’t mean we’re free of shoe-devastating weather. April showers will be here before you know it, and so will all the other endless days of rain we’ll face throughout the year. When your morning commute involves walking a few blocks (which holds true for most of us city dwellers), we need something to protect our feet from those black hole-esque puddles—because you never really know how deep they are. 

Just because the weather outside sucks, it doesn’t mean your outfit has to suffer too. Far behind us are the days of clunky rain boots we used to wear as kids—today’s styles can be just as cool as your regular boots, from Chelsea styles to lace-ups in an array of colors and prints that you’ll want to wear all the time, rain or shine.

We rounded up 16 of the cutest rain boots you’ll need this spring, so the weather doesn't get you down and your feet stay dry.
