    What about a pair of slip-ons? Something like this:

    Note, I have no experience with anything like this. Just throwing it out there.

    Yes -- these are exactly what I wear in the rain in Manhattan. They are still available

    They are all out of stock. I have a pair and they are good to beat the shit out of.

    Its a shame too as they are great for this exact purpose. I have my three year old pair on today for just that reason and they still look great despite pretty heavy wear. The bottoms are getting rather thin though and every time I put them on I start thinking of what I'll get as replacements when the sole finally goes.

    You might consider the AE Nomad Chelsea boots, which are featured on the main page today. While not "waterproof" they are water resistant. I like my Nomad Chukka boots quite a bit. I don't know that I would wear Chelsea boots with a suit or tux, but I would with just about anything else.

    Used to use the staffords for that, but they ran their course after several years (maybe the best bang for buck boots I ever had).

    currently rocking a pair of Florsheim chelsea zip ups for that pu from DSW for this purpose. Not sure what the model is, but the purchase was pretty recent so I imagine they are still available. They are pretty solid, really comfortable, warm and handle the elements just fine (rain at least, I guess I'll test them out in snow shortly)
