Far too often a great outfit falls apart at the shoes.

Transitional weather often forces us to sacrifice style for functionality. We need lightweight, comfortable, waterproof boots to make it through the rainy months. Fortunately, brands have started to diversify their waterproof offerings making it easier to dress for spring while being prepared for changeable weather conditions.

Here are some of our picks for the best spring rain boots.

Heeled Chelsea boot, Sorel

We love this two-tone heeled take on a Chelsea boot. There’s traction on the sole and block heel making it good for walking in the rain and the snakeskin detail on the waterproof leather elevates the otherwise casual boot.
