Stay Stylish This Rainy Season With These Pairs

Conquer the rain in style


The monsoon season a.k.a. the rainy season has officially begun in most parts of Asia now, and we all know what that means as for our choice in footwear. We need pairs that will help us handle the weather and still ace the day in style. Thanks to today’s innovations in fashion, there are now a lot of water-resistant shoes aside from the usual bulky rain boots we grew up with. Check out some of our favourites.


Aigle Women’s Miss Juliette Bottillon Wellington Boots



This pair of sexy and sleek rain boots with heels for women has a five-star rating on Amazon for a reason. Aigle Women’s Miss Juliette Bottillon Wellington Boots are made of rubber and are manufactured by hand in France. It comes in colours of black, brown, green, auburn, amber, and navy. Get a pair here and match them with your favourite jeans and parka, or even with your favourite dress.


Melissa Doll III



At least once in a woman’s life, she has tried wearing a dress on a rainy day and felt the challenge of finding flats that will achieve the sweet look but also survive the downpour. This pair of doll shoes from Melissa named Doll III is perfect for that. It looks romantic, has a round-toe form, and is very feminine because it is topped with a metallic ribbon. But most importantly, it’s made of PVC inside and out, which will keep your feet dry and comfortable. Shop your own pair here.


Dr. Martens’ 1460 PRIDE


This unisex pair of 8-eye rainbow boots from Dr. Martens called 1460 PRIDE doesn’t simply and literally turn one’s gloomy day to a colourful one but also represent something meaningful. Walk with pride and stand tall with the LGBTQ community with this pair while matching it with a black or white shirt and your favourite jeans. It’s made durable and fashionable using high-quality materials that can also handle the rain.



Muji’s Water Repellant Organic Cotton Sneakers



It’s a must to include these Water Repellant Organic Cotton Sneakers from Muji in your rainy day essentials. These kicks come in low and high-cut type, fitted with removable cupped insoles that cuddle your feet firmly. The best feature of this pair? It’s pre-treated with water-repellent technology so you won’t have to worry about puddles staining its fabric. With its classic design and mono-colour, you can wear it to sport your favourite athleisure or casual wear. Also, check how affordable it is here.

Sam Edelman Tinsley Rain Boot



It’s not difficult to fall in love with this take on the Chelsea boots from Sam Edelman, the Tinsley Rain Boot. It's got pretty colours and elegant form. It has an inch of heels to add a bit of height but does not compromise comfort with its padded footbed inside. Wear them how you usually wear your suede Chelseas — with jeans and a shirt or a dress for a casual look or be bold and go boho under the rain with a long skirt. Take a closer look at these boots here.
