Just because the weather sucks doesn’t mean your outfits have to. In fact, nowadays, there’s so much technological advancement around fabric and construction that you can deflect rain without suffocating your body—or bringing down your style. That’s especially true when it comes to sneakers. Your favorite silhouettes are now being done up in new waterproof and water-resistant fabrics that stop rain from getting in. Here are 11 of our favorites out right now.
Seavees Army Issue Sneaker Standard
Seavees have a built-in nautical feel to them, which is only elevated by this water-resistant nylon. Wear them on the boat (or near a boat) for a truly appropriate vibe.
Vans SK8-Hi Pro
Vans Sk8-His are a classic. And the Pro version takes things up a level. The water-repellent suede upper makes sure your feet stay dry (and keeps the shoes from getting too beat up over time). Plus, it’s a low-key look. In this print and color, you’d have no idea what they can do.
Adidas Handball Spezial Shoes
We’re partial to weather-ready materials placed on sneakers we already know and love. Take the Adidas Spezial, for example, which is a cool everyday shoe made even more wearable by its functional, water-resistant suede upper.
Chuck 70 Gore-Tex Leather High-Top
Nothing stops the rain quite like Gore-Tex. And using the proprietary waterproof fabric on a classic Chuck Taylor makes for one of the best rainy-day shoes around.
Veja SDU RT
If you’re into a more classic runner than a high-top, Veja makes a range of shoes made with waterproof mesh—which is also constructed from recycled water bottles, if you’re looking for sustainability, too.
Veja V-12 Suede and B-Mesh Sneakers
Veja also brings its recycled and water-resistant B-Mesh to its classic V-12 silhouette. Wear these with shorts and chinos all summer long.
Nike ACG React Terra Gobe Sneaker
When in doubt, outdoorsy sneakers often come equipped with water-resistant details to make them reliable for adventuring. Nike ACG’s React Terra Gobe is one such example—the nylon upper is make to keep your feet dry—and you don’t need to be atop a mountain to wear it.
New Balance Tokyo Design Studio R_C2
This sneaker blends New Balance’s tried-and-true shape with Tokyo Design Studio’s fabric expertise. The result is a cool-looking, Gore-Tex lined sneaker that you can wear any and everywhere.
Adidas Outdoor Terrex Free Hiker CR Hiking Shoe
Adidas Outdoor also puts heavy emphasis on water-resistant shoes for the outdoors. If this is the year you finally (finally!) go on that early-morning Saturday hike, these are the shoes you should take.
Boss Cosmo Sneaker
If your style leans more into polished than athletic, Boss’s low-profile sneaker looks great to the office and beyond. Plus, it’s water-resistant.
Aquatalia Scott Water-Resistant Sneaker
Same goes for Aquatalia. The Italian brand’s main mission is making functional and weather-proofed shoes that don’t look the part. These water-resistant sneakers are perfect for a casual work environment as well as every vacation dinner you could imagine.
