Rain Boot Question & Answer

Recently I have received a decent amount of emails pertaining to rain boots and various questions. So for today’s blog post I thought I would address some the questions I have received over the past few weeks!

What Are My Favorite Rain Boots?
Hunter Boots and Joules Rain Boots. I have two pair of Hunter Boots and two pair of Joules Rain Boots. During the fall and winter months I prefer to slip on a pair of rain boots versus some running shoes – they are just easier to take on and off and they tend to go a little with the type of outfits I usually wear. These and These are my absolute favorite!

Are Hunter Rain Boots Comfortable?
Yes, hunter rain boots are very comfortable and I love the fact that they can be worn with a casual dress or skirt out to dinner or just with some leggings and a sweatshirt and everything in between.

In my experience rain boots tend to run on the larger side. I usually wearing a 7 in riding boots and over the knee boots and have always had to go down a full size whenever I purchase rain boots, so all my rain boots are a size 6.

What Is A Good Alternative To Hunter Boots?
Joules. Also a British brand and in my opinion the quality of their rain boots are equal to that of Hunter boots. Plus, they have the classic solid rain boots, but the also have rain boots with either a cute print or a bow on the back of them.

Do Rain Boots Make Your Feet Sweaty?
Keep in mind that my body temperature tends to run cold, but personally I have never had an issue with my feet being sweaty due to rain boots. I usually wear a pair of socks from Free People {like these} with my boots and then on really cold days when I wear Hunter Boots I’ll also wear the Hunter Boot Socks.

How Often Do You Wear Your Rain Boots?
I wear them practically all the time in the fall and winter months, and then of course on rainy spring and summer days.

Are Hunter Boots Worth The Price?
I will admit that at the end of the day both Hunter and Joules Rain Boots are a bit pricey, but definitely worth the price. I have had one pair of my Hunter boots for 6 years and the other for 2 years then I’ve had a pair of Joules rain boots for 3 years and the second pair I just purchased this past fall, and they all look brand new and you will definitely get your moneys worth out of them. To avoid having my rain boots look old or worn out I’ll usually go over them with a Hunter Boot Shiner Sponge once a month; it works like magic and keeps your boots from getting that foggy look to them that the rubber material is prone to.
