Why you’ll love them: The Sperry Top-Sider Saltwater Rain Boots are durable after years of wear, well-designed for rain, and work effortlessly into the winter months.
I speak from personal experience when I say that Sperry makes great rain boots — I’ve been wearing my pair for almost five years now, and they still keep my feet perfectly dry in the rain.
You’ll see that this “duck shoe” design from other brands like L.L. Bean and Sorel, and each company offers something slightly different from Sperry. For instance, L.L. Bean offers a resole program, and Sorel’s boots have better traction if you plan to go hiking. But Sperry’s boots have the advantage of an affordable price in the $100-$120 range, and these Saltwaters can’t be beat if you’re in need of a simple shoe that keeps your feet dry as you go around town.
The boots come in a wider width, which is good for those of you who have wider feet, but it’s important to note that some buyers with narrower feet sized down to get a better fit. Sperry’s boots also have a micro-fleece lining for a layer of warmth, a cute and handy side zipper for quicker wear and removal, and a “wavy” outsole design that Sperry says is ideal for “ultimate wet/dry traction.”
For snowy days, a decent six-inch shaft is great for walking through snowstorms with confidence. But for me personally, I love a boot that looks just as stylish as it is practical in unpredictable weather. The hardest part will likely be deciding which color to get.
