Dive In Feet First With the Best Rubber Boots for Men

best rubber boots men bestrubberboots gridimage 2a

The changing seasons can be punishing on footwear. One moment your favorite canvas sneakers are brand spankin’ new and the next? A three-block walk in an unexpected downpour has drenched them with grease, mud, and road salt. It’s always a good idea to own footwear that’s a bit more sturdy and offers more protection against the elements. You could turn to leather, but maintaining such a texture can be a chore, and the initial cost makes leather boots more of an investment purchase than a seasonal upgrade. The solution?

Rubber boots and shoes.  

This old-school shoe material is making a comeback thanks to its easy maintenance, relatively low price, and unique aesthetic. Not to mention, rubber boots offer some of the best wet weather protection you can ask for.

Whether you’re working outdoors or just walking to the office, be prepared with a pair of the best rubber boots for men (and if you live in a place where it really pours, some waterproof socks as well).

When it comes to rubber boots, you just can’t get more classic than Hunter, a name that’s been synonymous with rough-and-tumble waterproof wear since the mid-1800s. This pair, in particular, puts a modern spin on the rain boot with its fashion-forward Chelsea silhouette.

L.L. Bean Rubber Moc Boots – $99

An iconic brand in the outdoor sphere, L.L. Bean has been churning out stylish-yet-practical footwear for decades. For fall, we prefer the rubber moc boot to the company’s more intense Bean Boots, mostly because they’re easier to slip on to quickly walk the dog or take out the trash, and they provide a bit more flexibility fashion-wise.
