Go to Rainy Day Shoes

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 

Title kind of says it all. What is your #1 (if you must #1 & #2) rainy day shoe(s)? I have started to put together a decent collection of shoes I can wear when the weather is nice, but living in the northeast I need some wet weather shoes to wear...

Wingtip Brunomaglis or my Ugly Square-Toed Kenneth Coles. Both Rubber-soled.

Or my RedWings Boots which goes well with tweed pants for Fall..

Beater pair of rubber soled Johnston and Murphy NST's.
They are 6-7 years old, and look great.
They are the most comfortable pair of shoes I own.

Now, go answer the poll below.

What do you guys think of LL Bean's duck boots? Too old man-ish? I've never worn them myself but they seem to be pretty bulletproof.

What's the most you'd spend on a pair of beaters? biggrin.gif

C&J Tetbury or, for casual days, RL MacCallum, both with Dainite soles. I'd really like a second pair of Tetbury's, or a similarly sleek boot, for rainy days when I'm wearing business casual.

I got a pair of these Peal & Co. boots in black calf from Brooks Brothers last year with a dainite sole - they are perfect for foul weather:

310

Note that they aren't currently available at BB, but keep looking - they pop up with regularity. fyi: they're usually about $500 a pop, but I scored mine on sale last year for about $240.

ps - good blog post on "shoes for rainy days" here (note to check out his point about overshoes, it's worth investigating): http://dieworkwear.com/post/3621598417/shoe-options-for-rainy-days

Further proof that higher education is not necessary in the pursuit of wealth. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

To answer the OP, depending on how bad the weather is: AE shell McNeils or Tricker's Stow boots. I just ordered some Swims as well.

In particular - these monsters:
