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 rain is scheduled in the coming months. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best ankle rain boots

Sam Edelman Women’s Tinsley Rain Boot

“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!!”

Asgard Women’s Short Rain Boots

“I bought these boots for a trip to Paris in February. I wanted something versatile and waterproof that I could wear with everything. Overall, these boots were a great choice! They went with everything, were waterproof, and most importantly, were very comfortable. I walked all day in them for four days straight with no issues. My feet did get a little cold at the end of the day and the temps were in the low-to-mid-40s. Great boot if you’re not wanting to commit to a full rain boot all day and are not going to a snowy climate!”

Best duck rain boot

Sperry Top-Sider Women’s Saltwater Duck Boots

“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.”

Best short rain boots

Hunter Women’s Original Short Rain Boot

“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 average boot I’d typically wear. So it worked out. I do suggest the socks, super comfy and they also make the boot extra cute.”

Best short, patterned rain boots

Sloggers Waterproof Comfort Boot

“These have become my official dog-walking boots! It’s quite muddy around here, especially in the spring, which means tromping through a lot of wet grass, mud, and puddles before our dog finds the right spot to do her business. No longer do I have to tiptoe through soaked sod or grimace every time my foot goes ‘squish.’ These are quite comfortable on our one-mile walks and after several weeks, they’re holding up extremely well. With a pair of thick socks, they keep my feet warm even in below-freezing weather.”

Best wide-calf rain boot

West Blvd Women’s Mid-Calf Rain Boots

“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.”

Best mid-calf rain boot

Kamik Women’s Heidi Rain Boot

“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.”

Best tall rain boot

Hunter Women’s Original Tall Rain Boot

“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!”

Best insulated rain boot

Ugg Women’s Sienna Rain Boot

“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.

Best lace-up rain boot

DKSUKO Women’s Rain Boots

“Love, love, love these rain shoes! I have a high-energy hound and I live in an apartment, so we are constantly walking. The area I live in gets pretty swampy whenever it rains so I needed a pair of comfy rain shoes that I could just slip on quickly to keep my feet dry. They fit like a glove and as long as I’m not in any puddles that are deep enough to come up to the laces, my feet stay nice and dry. I walk three to five miles in these little shoes almost daily, best purchase I’ve made in a while!”

Best memory foam rain boot

Croc Women’s Freesail Shorty Bootie

“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.”
