It’s that time of year where sudden rains and gloomy weather is the norm. Make sure your style is still on point even on rainy days!

It’s that time of year where sudden rains and gloomy weather is the norm. Great news to all: footwear perfect for rain, mud, and puddles have recently dropped in the sneaker market to keep your feet dry and your style points intact!

All-season boots and sneakers

Making its comeback is Keds’ Weatherized collection perfect for the fashion girl who wishes to hit the rainy streets without compromising fashion. The weatherized line features silhouettes that can battle the elements in style. All water and stain repellant, each one with a different look.

It comes in matte canvas or twill canvas finish.

feet!
