Best Waterproof Boots for Travel
Written By: Niki Landry
Packing the right gear is an important first step in battling the cold, starting with your feet. Below is a collection of the best waterproof boots for women traveling this winter. They’ll help you keep your feet warm and dry!
Waterproof Rain Boots
The most popular waterproof boots for women is the rubber rain boot. A wardrobe staple in notoriously wet areas, most people are familiar with the very popular Hunter brand boots.
If you are looking for something a little different, two brands, Joules and Mela, have taken wellies to the next level by adding patterns, embellishments, and buckles.
For travel abroad, you may think these are the best waterproof boots for rainy cities. However, you’ll be surprised at how many cute leather waterproof boots are available.
Take a look at these rain jackets for women to complete your winter look!
Waterproof Duck Boots
Half rubber boot, half duck canvas, with a warm and cozy interior are the traditional requirements for the practical duck boot.
For a modern update on these popular waterproof boots for women, opt for the Steve Madden pair above or stay classic with the Omni-Heat Winter Boot. Just beware; there may be a waiting list. This style has become very popular over the last year, and was on backorder for most of last winter.
One of the reasons these may be the best waterproof boots for your trip is that they’re smaller and therefore more packable than tall boots. We’ll let you be the judge.
We love ankle boots for travel. These are our top picks!
Lace-Up Waterproof Boots
A little less utilitarian looking than the pairs above, these lace-up styles have a lumberjack appeal to them. They feature warm interiors, waterproof uppers, and rubber outsoles to help keep you dry and avoid slipping on wet terrain.
As a plus, they can easily be integrated with the rest of your travel wardrobe since they don’t look like “traditional” waterproof boots.
Combat boots will always be in style, even when they’re not. These are our faves!
Waterproof Snow Boots
This pair of Columbia snow boots is a modern take on the winter staple of waterproof boots. Their sleek style is minimalistic while still retaining all of the practical aspects of snow boots. The faux fur lining adds style, comfort, and added insulation.
These types of shoes are definitely the best waterproof boots for a ski trip or other snow adventures.
Here are five more women’s waterproof boots to choose from!
Leather Waterproof Boots
Great for walking around cities known for their wet weather, these leather waterproof boots for women will complement most outfits. Pair with tights, leggings, skirts, or skinny jeans to give an edge to your outfit.
They have the waterproof boots element without looking super practical or having the rubber boot look. Solid black boots are always an easy, go-to pair of shoes for travel in winter, autumn, and even spring in cooler climates.

Sport Waterproof Boots
If your goal this winter is to stay active during your travels then the waterproof boots above will fit the bill.
These athletic-style waterproof boots provide comfort, stability, and warmth for those cold weather treks. With pops of bright colors these shoes will help to ward off the winter blues, and keep your feet warm and dry on the trails.
Ankle Waterproof Boots
For the perfect balance of fashion and functionality, opt for ankle waterproof boots. Double duty items are thoroughly loved here at TFG, and Blondo will easily help you take on the elements in style. Working as a regular ankle boot in the sun and a functional rain boot for when a downpour starts, these picks are perfect for the traveling fashionista.
The “Villa” is a classic and streamlined bootie that will add a sleek finishing touch to your look, while “Liam” has a more modest stacked height and a stylish zip closure. Saving luggage space and staying fashionable – what’s not to love?
