Rain boots done the old way conjure up visions of sopranos singing show tunes and tall, oversized polka-dot boots stomping through sunshowers.
But when it rains in New York City, it doesn’t feel like a syrupy postwar musical. It feels like Monday, and you probably don’t have the cheerful optimism to drag one clunky rubber boot around all day, let alone two — which means you definitely don’t want to schlep a second pair of shoes around to change into later. What you need is one cushiony pair that magically transitions from gritty rubber rain boot to slick Chelsea without skipping a beat.
For that tall order, you should check out Everlane’s $75 rain boot, which comes in four neutral colors (surplus, black, toffee, and pink), and whole sizes. Right now, it’s only available on the women’s portion of the site, but men could conceivably get their own pair with a little help from the company’s live chat box for size conversion.
How the Rain Boot is designed
The design team’s goal was simple: make the most comfortable rain boot possible. The result is a $75 rain boot that has a versatile ankle height, grippy tread, and a custom-designed cushioned insole for bouncy comfort. The stretch panels and pull tabs make them easier to throw on and off, and the rubber is flexible and easy to clean. They’ve got plenty of room for thick, wintry socks, and black rubber reinforcements at the front for extra coverage — and some style points.
Before their official launch two years ago, we tested Everlane’s new $75 rain boots in the grimy slush and rain of New York City. We stomped through puddles, ran to catch trains, and rushed through hectic weekdays at the office. Before you buy a pair, we’ve compiled our thoughts on them below, including an update to how they’re holding up today.
