For a trendy take on the classic lace up hiking boot, we love the Rockport Copley. This fuss-free style is always ready to take on a rain cloud thanks to the fact that it’s a waterproof leather boot.
Traveling in winter? Not a problem with these. The flannel lining will keep your feet cozy and warm while the 7” calf will protect against water splashing onto your leg. The black hue makes these stylish enough for the city and rugged enough for the countryside. Buy it here!
The Bergamo is a casually refined bootie in soft leather that is a great pick when you need a durable shoe to keep you going during the rainy seasons.

The short shaft height makes these great for pairing with ankle length pants in fall or skirts and dresses in spring. Buy it here!
Born Boots are a really popular choice of shoe for female travelers exploring different cities throughout the winter.
While many consider them to be the best womens waterproof leather boots, the shoes aren’t advertised as “waterproof”. They can be treated with a waterproof spray allowing you to carry on your adventure without getting wet feet. They also have a good rib with a rubber sole with a durable construction.
TFG readers love them because they’re both stylish and comfortable, making them perfect for a trip to a trendy European city where there would be plenty of walking and rain, too.
Another option that looks like a great balance between a bootie that’s too low and a tall boot offering enough coverage for a moderate amount of walking in the rain is the Estonia. For winter travel, consider a tall boot such as the Campbell.
