    Rain Boots Dilemma



    Looking for rain boots that are affordable, and goes well with casual and perhaps even work-worthy.


    Two boots I've come up with are:

    -Native Jimmy in Jiffy Black: http://www.eukicks.com/native-jimmy-jiffy-black/

    -Tretorn Strala Vinter: http://store.tretorn.com/Str%3Fla+Vinter/p/


    Having a hard time deciding so I thought I'd ask the dappered community. Thoughts?

    LL Bean boots. Classic, comfy, nigh-invulnerable. Size down.

        Skip those clunkers.

        Get some classic work boots - Wolverine 1000, Red Wing GT, Chippewa - and slather on the Sno Seal.

          I have the Tretorns you link to and yeah, they're pretty clunky looking in the office. I was hoping for the same as you (rain boots that can be worn all day) but in the future if I do wear them to work I'll end up changing out of them once I arrive in the office.

            I'm a "change at the office" advocate. But I have found myself in the minority with that in the past.

              I have the tretorns as well. I got them cheap back in the Bonobos half-off store credit days. They are clunky and the quality is so-so (the pull tab on one of mine ripped off the first time I tried putting them on). I almost never wear them because Florida doesn't really have rainy day and I hate being stuck in them when the weather clears.


              For rain I like boots with a rubber sole. I have WW2 Rough Out boot replicas bought off eBay (Made ix Mexico, Goodyear wealted, Steve McQueen approved) as my primary wet weather boot. The rough out gives them a rough, suede-like quality. I also have a pair of boat-boots from Lands End Canvas I got cheap during their recent sales.


              This weekend, while at the Sperry outlet, I saw some sweet 'deck' desert boots.


              Unless you're actually going hunting or wading through a river, I'd say skip the obvious rain boots and go with something a little more contemporary.

                How about a decent looking waterproof boot that you can wear with business casual attire:
