With technology that keeps feet dry and comfortable, our waterproof footwear has been designed to withstand everything the elements can throw at you.
What makes the best waterproof shoes?
The most comfortable waterproof shoes are both waterproof AND breathable, allowing heat to escape while preventing water droplets from getting in. That may sound like a paradox, but that’s why the best waterproof shoes are made with clever technologies that give you the best of both worlds.
All of our waterproof walking shoes and boots feature one of our special waterproof technologies, designed to keep your feet protected whether you’re stuck in a torrential downpour on the mountainside or a light shower in the city. But these technologies aren’t exclusive to our walking boots, they can also be found in some of our sports shoes, smart boots and even certain models of our iconic Wallabee.
