We're smack dab in the middle of springtime, which means rain showers are arriving in full force. Carrying an umbrella with you on the daily is a must in some parts of America and investing in cute rain boots is a must throughout all of it. If you don't own a pair already then chances are your feet have gotten soaked through your sneakers already this year. Why not buy a pair that's cheap and cute so your days of suffering through prunes toes can be over?
While there are plenty of cool black rain boots on the market that span from Chelsea boots to lace-up styles (some are included below), there are also offerings in cotton candy hues and cool finishes like glitter or patent. Rain boots don't have to be boring shoes that you detest wearing and can actually make your outfit a lot more playful. What's more, you can get some really great options for under $75, so they're really not that much of an investment. Pick out a pair from the list below and make sure you're also equipped with waterproof jacket or umbrella. You'll be ready to take on any upcoming downpours, no matter how torrential.
