Tackle the toughest of outdoor challenges in our pick of the best waterproof shoes. Sleek urban sneakers in pretty shades and rugged hiking boots in sturdy colours definitely keep water where it belongs, on the outside.
Go that extra mile in waterproof shoes
If you're a wet weather adventurer then these waterproof shoes are your best friends, letting you stay out and keep going even when it's raining cats and dogs. Waterproof hiking boots and trainers are sealed from the elements by outer layers of Gore-Tex or similar keep-dry technology. Good designs keep water on the outside but still let your feet breathe, something you'll be glad of at the end of a tough day. Deep tread soles cope efficiently with surface water, keeping you upright on the wettest surfaces. Waterproof ankle height boots work hard for the whole family if you enjoy tackling weekend cross-country walks together no matter what the weather's doing. Pack waterproof trousers as well and let the kids enjoy some puddle-jumping fun.
Waterproof shoes take on new style
For wet weather office commutes or urban adventures waterproof shoes cope with whatever water the day throws at you without any loss of style. Low-top sneakers in treated suede add a high-fashion tweak to this hard-working footwear. These sleek unisex hiking sneakers have colourful blocks of colour and bright laces that add cheerful notes to the greyest of days. Wear with chinos or jeans and pick out their colours with your tops. Finish with a belted trench coat and tap into the 1960's trend with a waterproof bucket hat in a mood-brightening print.
