Best Waterproof Boots For Women

Packing, Product Reviews

It’s hard to beat a nice pair of waterproof boots when you’re traveling during the winter or in wet conditions.

But no one wants to travel around Europe wearing an ugly pair of boots — that’s why we’ve put together a list of the best waterproof boots for men that are both comfortable and stylish.

So let’s get started…

Tips For Keeping Your Feet Comfortable

  • Support & Insoles – Make sure your boots have the proper support for your feet. A quality pair of insoles can make boots much more comfortable. We’re big fans of Superfeet insoles.
  • Match Shoes To Destination – This seems like a no-brainer, but you need to match your boots to when and where you’ll be traveling. A pair of lightweight hiking shoes are better for summer travel and heavier duty boots are more appropriate for the cooler months.
  • Break In Your Boots – BREAK IN YOUR BOOTS! Boots often have a longer break-in period than shoes so wear them regularly for at least two weeks or longer before your trip. Your feet will thank you.
  • Get Waterproof — There’s no point in wearing boots if they’re not waterproof (all the boots in this guide are waterproof).
  • Blister Bandages — Pack a few blister bandages in case you develop a blister while traveling.
  • Quality Isn’t Cheap — A nice pair of boots will start around $150 so they’re not cheap. However, a good pair should last you for years. Here is a list of good brands:

Tips For Buying Boots Online

We buy all our boots online because it’s the best way to find exactly what you’re looking for. However, buying boots can be a bit tricky because each brand and model fits differently. You’ll want to try on multiple boots.

That’s why we basically only order from Zappos. Their shipping is crazy fast and they offer simple free returns. And because boot sizing can be tricky, we’ll order two or three different sizes and return the ones that don’t fit.
