12 Weatherproof Boots You'll Want to Wear Even on Sunny Days

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

After New Year's Eve, the romance of winter is pretty much over. Time to settle in for the long, cold haul to spring, and a proper pair of weatherproof boots is definitely in order. Luckily, we've found 12 pairs stylish enough to wear even when you're not faced with wintry mix.

Peruse the gallery above for Cole Haan wedges you can wear in the snow, L.L. Bean riding boots you can kick through the slush, and customizable Timberlands that you can wear with skirts and still scale icy sidewalks. Toasty warm wishes from our boot sock to yours.—Nicola Fumo
