Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ’em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written before about the best winter boots for men and women, the best boot liners and insoles, plus the best Uggs, period — here, we’re singling out the best rain boots for women on Amazon, primed for whatever slushy snow and rain is scheduled in the coming months. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

The Best Chelsea Rain Boot

Sam Edelman Women’s Tinsley Rain Boot
From $25 at Amazon

4.2 stars, 738 reviews

“I seriously love these boots. I wore them all fall when it was rainy, and now I wear them all the time in the winter. They look fantastic; nobody ever realizes they’re rain boots! I walk around a lot, and have yet to get any blisters, no matter what thickness my socks are. Super-high quality, I’ve had no issues with them. Highly recommend!!”

The Best Duck Boot

Sperry Top-Sider Women’s Saltwater Duck Boots
From $63 at Amazon

4.6 stars, 942 reviews

“I had been looking for a rain boot all season. I have shorter legs and thicker calves so most boots are a no-go for me. These are nice and loose, so no probs with that at all. These are waterproof, comfortable, and surprisingly the look has grown on me and now I feel like they are pretty cute too. I have been stomping around our property in them and they have been holding up great.”

The Best Sheepskin-Lined Rain Boot

4.5 stars, 432 reviews

“I absolutely love these boots! It’s been really snowy and rainy where I live recently and I didn’t want to wear any of my other boots or tennis shoes out because I’m picky about getting them dirty. I found these on here and fell in love with them instantly. The design is beautiful and the price was fair considering they’re Uggs. The insoles are so soft and comfortable. I’ve been wearing these every day since I’ve gotten them and they are perfect for snowy, rainy weather.”

Editor’s Note: These Ugg boots are also available in a taller length here.

Ugg Women’s Sienna Rain Boot

The Best Cushy Sole Rain Boot

Croc Women’s Freesail Shorty Bootie
From $27 at Amazon

4.4 stars, 113 reviews

“I love these. They are very comfortable due to the memory foam (but they’re Crocs, so that’s expected). They perform perfectly in the rain, and I’m not afraid of slipping. They are very light on your feet, unlike regular rain boots, even though they look a little bulkier. It’s strange. I have them on today, and it’s not raining LOL.”

The Best Short Rain Boot

Hunter Women’s Original Short Rain Boot
From $83 at Amazon

4.6 stars, 504 reviews

“These boots are by far the best boots! So comfy. Especially with the socks. At first I wanted the tall Hunter boots, but I’m glad I went for short. These boots are short, but as tall as an avarage boot I’d typically wear. So it worked out. I do suggest the socks, super comfy and they also make the boot extra cute.”

The Best Matte Mid-Calf Rain Boot

West Blvd Women’s Mid-Calf Rain Boots
From $7 at Amazon

4.1 stars, 2,342 reviews

“These are excellent in a variety of ways: the fit, the quality, the comfort, and the durability. I know these are going to last for a minute because the rubber is heavy-duty, yet they are not too heavy, like most rain boots can be, and the molded construction makes them completely water-/rot-proof. They are very comfortable with a soft inner lining and a removable foot bed insert. They do run slightly large in length yet that will only serve you well because you can wear thick socks in colder weather without having to worry about your feet being constricted. Combined with the ample width these boots allow for the comfortable use of prescribed or commercial prosthetic inserts.”

The Best Patent Mid-Calf Rain Boot

Kamik Women’s Heidi Rain Boot
From $35 at Amazon

4.3 stars, 2,801 reviews

“I wore these boots all day during a rainy day at Disneyland. I brought extra shoes to the park thinking for sure that these would end up hurting my feet in few hours. Not only did they not hurt my feet but they were so comfortable, that even when the weather cleared I kept them on. I wore these rain boots for 12 hours and walked 11 miles. No blisters! They are a little snug around the calf, which is good for keeping rain from running down into the boot, but it definitely means I will only be wearing these boots with skinny jeans or leggings. I have pretty slim feet and I normally wear a size 7.5. I bought a size 8 and it was a good fit for me. The boots are still pretty new but I highly recommend them.”

The Best Knee-Length Rain Boot

Hunter Women’s Original Tall Rain Boot
From $83 at Amazon

4.3 stars, 859 reviews

“These are well designed, high quality, and comfortable. I wear a size 6 and a half in most shoes and ordered the matte black ones in size 7. They are roomy — jeans comfortably tuck in, and I like being able to wiggle my toes or wear heavier socks. I actually slip my orthotics in them when I walk long distances. They even look great with skirts! They are a dog-walking, puddle-jumping, gardening staple!”
