Wondering if you should pack heavy rubber rain boots on your next trip? Don’t make your decision just yet!

We’ve rounded up thirteen cute rain booties that look just like the real thing PLUS they won’t take up any room in your suitcase. Find out what they are!


Please note: rubber rain boots should only be considered when spending extensive time outdoors and if the weather forecast shows heavy downpours. Otherwise, choose regular waterproof boots like these for everything else.


Cute Rain Boots for Women


I’ve been back in England for a few weeks now and in search of the perfect rain boots. The truth is, you can pretty much expect grey skies here throughout the year and rain tends to accompany the clouds that come with it.

Contrary to what you may be thinking, rubber rain boots aren’t actually your best choice when traveling abroad unless you’re planning to spend an extended amount of time in nature.

For example, here in England, Hunter Wellies are the popular choice but they are not worn on an everyday basis. Instead, there are a variety of waterproof footwear options like these that look just like regular boots.


These are some of the most recommended waterproof shoes by our readers!


Many people stick with traditional womens leather boots as they are water resistant and tend to keep you feet warm and dry – essential when in a cold climate. However, it all depends how much time you’ll actually be spending walking outside in the rain.


In my quest to find cute rain boots for women I stumbled across an entire selection of styles that are the perfect packing solution for rainy trips:



Shop the boots by number: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 89 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13


As you can see, these are actually cute rain boots for women and look exactly like regular shoes!

For extremely wet trips, I’d recommend taking a pair of versatile short booties like those shown above. In addition, take a a regular, nicer pair of leather (or faux leather) mid-calf to knee high boots.

This way you’re not dragging around large rubber boots you may never wear. You can easily pack these smaller ones away and bring them out as and when needed. However, they look so good that you can even get away with wearing them on dry days, too!




I’m currently lusting over the Jeffrey Campbell Stormy Boot (#5 above) and the Rebecca Minkoff Quincy rain booties (#2 above).

I’m going to grab one of them when I’m back in the US next month. It’s super expensive to import products into the UK and they’re a much better price at Nordstrom and Amazon!




Staying dry when it rains is essential and it’s so much more than just using an umbrella.

In addition to waterproof or water-resistant shoes, you’ll need to have a durable travel raincoat on top to keep you dry and if it’s really cold, a pair of thermals to keep you warm without the bulk.

You may not actually need to pack certain clothing as you can see on our sample rainy day outfits. But you may get away with taking a versatile pair of cute rain boots for women instead of a large rubber pair that only serves one purpose.
