Spring is officially here!
As great as it is that the weather is warming up, the spring weather also means lots and lots of rain. Most people don't mind wearing rain boots during the spring, but for those of you who don't want to cramp your spring outfits with chunky boots, there is now an alternative!
Many companies have been transforming some of their iconic shoes into shoes suitable for inclement weather.
Gucci has made a rubberized version of their iconic hoarsebit loafer, another Italian brand named Shudy has even rubberized driving loafers, although we don't know how useful they will be for protecting the top of your foot.
For those who don't want to buy shoes, there have been rubberized boots from brands like Native and even Salvatore Ferragamo, but Swims made it easier for many by making a cover to fit right over a pair of boots that you already own.
Although most people would rather not even think about dealing with rain, these alternatives can keep you dry while maintaining your outfit's integrity. Check out some of the rain boot alternatives that are fashion forward for spring in the gallery above.
