One truth about Chicago (many people don’t talk about) is that it can be a very wet city. Especially during the winter!
In case you’re wondering what I’m talking about, feel free to take a seat and let me explain. During the winter, it is no secret that snow days are frequent in Chicago. Well, the snow becomes slush. From there, slush eventually melts into a large and sometimes deep puddle.
Given this is the case, I’ve found that my feet need a little reinforcement in the winter and my go-to essential are rain boots. Yes, I said it! In my experience, rain boots have done the best job keeping my feet dry and protected in varying weather conditions.
While I am a huge fan of the rain boot, I’ve always thought that they lacked comfort and overall foot support. It just seemed like rain boots weren’t constructed to fully support the foot. From my personal experience, when I would wear my rain boots for a full day, the top of my foot, technically called the dorsal surface, would feel extremely uncomfortable and ache.

For me, rain boots have always lacked comfort. It just seemed like they weren’t constructed to fully support the foot.
From my personal experience, I could not wear rain boots for a full day without feeling discomfort. Needless to say, rain boots were a temporary solution to travel from an outdoor setting to an indoor setting, but not a full-day option.
In February, Everlane launched their very first rain boot! I spent a month testing them out in nearly every Chicago condition thrown my way, and this boot is EVERYTHING.
The Everlane rain boot has a cushioned comfort insole, the perfect ankle height, they are seriously stylish, and the coolest part they are ethically made! I’m obsessed with the color palette too, while I am a believer that rain boots should be fun, the color palette for these rain boots felt very fresh and complimentary to any wardrobe, especially jeans.
