With wet fall weather just around the corner, now is a great time to take stock of your existing wardrobe and fill in any gaps before the seasons change. There’s nothing worse than soggy feet after stepping outside, making waterproof boots a must-have ahead of planning any kind of outdoor activity.
Whether it’s walking the dog, running everyday errands or commuting to and from work, a solid pair of boots needs to hold up to the tough conditions of unpredictable Canadian weather. Ideal for rain, snow and sleet, waterproof styles are a seasonal workhorse that you’ll find yourself turning to again and again.
With so many available to choose from on the market, we’ve narrowed it down to 10 pairs of boots that will keep your feet warm and dry all season long, no matter your budget.
If you’re looking for a way to keep your feet extra warm while adding an on-trend touch to your boots, shearling details are the way to go. Whether faux or genuine fur, this plush material transforms any pair of footwear into a statement-making piece.
