Dive In Feet First With the Best Rubber Boots for Men by Cody Gohl, October 21, 2019
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. In times of messy crisis, you could turn to leather, but maintaining the texture can be a chore, and leather boots are, on the whole, quite expensive. The solution?
Rubber boots and shoes, my friend.
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. So, toss out the tennies and get into our list of the absolute best rubber boots for men.
For something a bit more contemporary, consider this all-rubber ankle boot from Xtratuf. Designed with anglers in mind, these kicks are lightweight, breathable, and, of course, completely resistant to water. Plus, the white trim along the outsole comes with a non-marking treatment, meaning no more magic erasers.
