Cougar's Plymouth, $70 The Footprint: A modern Chelsea boot, the Plymouth combines style and function: It has a translucent flex lug outsole and a resilient cushion insole for all-day comfort. Steven Sedlbauer, President: "Rain boots need to be stylish first and functional second. Our success has been with styles such as the Plymouth and our current Kensington ankle boot, which people are wearing for a fashion look 'weather or not.' Plus, these are a lot easier to travel with than a heavy, tall rubber boot." Joules' Tall Wellyprint, $79.95 The Footprint: Hand-crafted in natural rubber, the Tall Wellyprint is equipped with an adjustable back gusset for the calf, a back strap with a popper stud and a tire-tread-inspired outsole. It gets its street style from hand-drawn prints that make it stand out in the sunshine as well as the rain. Bil Waring, Senior Footwear Buyer: "The rain boot of the future will still be about fun. People smile when they see our boots and are happy to wear them; they draw positive comments from all around. Technology will move on and Joules will ensure we stay at the forefront of this. They will be easy to transport as our Roll Up Welly, Super Lightweight featuring some of the sports industry's sole technology that you see in running shoes today, making it feel like you have on a pair of waterproof sneakers." Roma Boots' Evol Matte Black Rain Boots, $89 The Footprint: Vegan and eco-friendly, the low-silhouette lace-up Evol has a natural rubber outsole, a Quick Dry knitted cotton lining and a multi-layer cushioned sole. Mary Clare Walsh, Marketing Coordinator: "The work boot of the future will be more versatile and stylish so the transition from work life to personal life is easier. Style won't have to be compromised for comfort; the work boot of the future will be the best of both." Kamik's Nellie, $64.99 The Footprint: The Made in Canada style combines athleisure fashion and comfort with 100 percent waterproof features. The recyclable, synthetic rubber rainboot features a modern geometric print, adding a pop of color to any outfit. 58 • Footwear Insight ~ July/August 2018 SLEEK AND CHIC WHETHER WET OR DRY Roma Boots' Evol Matte Black Rain Boots, $89 RAIN BOOT BOOK Cougar's Plymouth, $70 Joules' Tall Wellyprint, $79.95 Kamik's Nellie, $64.99
