Uhh... are you one of those cell phone walker asshats? This problem is easily avoided via minimal walking competence.
Just get some rubber soled shoes/boots, and use those when its wet. And when it's truly gross, obv use sneakers/proper winter bad weather boots.
Getting splashed is annoying, but I also use my eyes in that situation and don't stand near road puddles if I can help it.
Overall key is to not wear clothes so nice/expensive that you have to baby them or worry about normal wear and tear. Which can be tough...
