The best waterproof waterproof shoes you can buy today
Posted On July 2, 2021
Waterproof shoes have been a big deal for years now.
But it’s been a bit of a tough slog, thanks to a lack of standards and a lack in the way we buy and use them.
But this year the waterproof shoe revolution has started, and with it a flood of new shoes that are waterproof.
The best ones right now, though, are the ones that are actually really waterproof.
Here are the best waterproof shoes for the money right now.1.
The Sorel Riddell Riddel (2018)In a sea of white, this Riddeller Riddeell R-18 (2018, $225) from Sorell is one of the most sought-after waterproof shoes around.
It has a mesh upper, a water-resistant polyurethane outsole, and a mesh heel that is just a tad higher than most other waterproof shoes.
The water-repellent foam in the sock cushion is also water-proof, so you don’t have to worry about splashing.
But if you’re looking for a way to stay dry, the synthetic rubber is still a nice compromise.
There are also two different color options available, but you’re probably best off with the white option.
The Riddells Riddels also have a lot of traction on wet and slippery surfaces.
The rubber soles feel good, too, and they’re built with a really good gripper.
The only thing that could make this waterproof more comfortable would be the inclusion of a quick-release strap, but it’s hard to imagine that.
If you’re a water lover, this is the shoe to get.
