Rubber provides superior protection against wet conditions. Rubber outsoles deliver up maximum traction on slick surfaces, while a rubber boot construction is naturally waterproof and lightweight.
When trekking out in cold conditions, choose rubber boots designed with a built-in liner—like neoprene or microfleece. These materials provide added insulation that pairs well with your boot’s waterproof exterior. Rubber boots designed without insulation can be worn with heavy socks—allowing you to customize your level of warmth.
Today’s rain boots come in a variety of bold hues, like lime green, pink and fresh teal. Details like herringbone pattern panels or a high-gloss finish provide an unexpected accent.
If you’re looking for utility, go for a grey, black or camouflage rain boot, designed for performance on the hunt. Some rain boots are designed with a layer of thick, responsive foam insulation, which provides breathable heat in rugged conditions.
Three factors are critical in your rain boot—comfort, waterproof protection and traction.
A molded EVA midsole provides comfort, support and even extra warmth. The thicker the midsole, the farther from the ground your foot is. Polyurethane midsoles are suggested for those who need a boot that increases stability. Inner liners add softness and thermal protection. Antimicrobial fabrications in your boot prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
Rubber outsoles maximize traction on wet or slippery surfaces. Look for a boot that features a ribbed or patterned bottom, designed to best grip slick ground. Some rain boots feature lugs, which deliver superior traction on off-road terrain, but add weight to the shoe.
And, of course, it’s critical that your boot safeguards you from moisture. Rubber rain boots provide natural waterproof protection. Think about the level of coverage you would like in the great outdoors. Tuck your pants into a mid-calf boot or go for a lightweight rain shoe—an alternative to the traditional rubber boot.
