The Best Rain Boots I've Ever Had.
on December 4, 2012
I've recently moved from California to Portland, and I was rather clueless as to how to deal with the rain we get here. My waterproofed tennis shoes didn't cut it, and I was always cold and miserable. When it came time to shop for new shoes, I immediately thought of Teva, seeing as my best shoes are Teva hiking sandals from 2007--and they serve me better than when they were new.
As for the boots, my feet have been warm and dry on all the rainy dog walks on streets and through grass in 40 degree weather. The loop and eye closures are quick and easy and I never have to worry about the boots coming open. My feet have never been too hot when I need to wear my boots while visiting an restaurant. I can't vouch for temperature tolerances lower than 40 degrees F, as it just hasn't gotten that cold yet. My guess is, with a thicker pair of snow socks, these boots will rock even below freezing.
My only piece of advice is that these shoes do run about 1/2 size too small and so my 8.5 pair fits perfectly, despite my being a size 8. Also, wear socks. I went out sans socks, which is an obvious mistake on a walk, and came back with one little blister on my heel. No biggie, and I haven't had any need to 'break in' the boots at all. They fit fantastically from the start.
Buy these shoes if you need a warm, stylish and practical waterproof boot. You won't be disappointed.
