Sperry Hingham Boot

It poured this morning in Minneapolis and forecasters predict more precipitation this evening. If you don’t already have a pair of rain boots, a wet-weather must, it’s high time to dry out your pockets and invest! 

Hunter Wellies are widely popular for keeping feet dry on dismal days, but I prefer these Sperrys for their aesthetic versatility.

The Hingham has the requirements: a waterproof construction and cushioned micro-fleece interior for warmth. But a couple qualities set it apart: a tall, quilted shaft yields a stately equestrian flair, and the rubber outsole with Wave-Siping™ provides the traction to prevent an impromptu slip ‘n slide.

The deal-sealing feature is the boot’s semi-disguised rain gear identity. The waders look like an everyday pair of footwear, so you can step out in these good-looking galoshes even when the sun is shining [and not look like you missed the meteorological memo].

If you favor a shorter shaft and mountain-hiking motif, try the Shearwater in black.
