If you are among those rare women that believe a woman’s feet should look as good as her face, I’m with you. Imagine those cracked heels and itchy toes during monsoons.
Just the very thought is enough to make me hate this wet weather. But it’s quite possible to keep feet somewhat dry, if you try.
There’s a huge collection of best rainy shoes for women this year. Now why this year you would ask?
Because those days when women would make do with cheapo plastic footwear are gone. Even the snazziest footwear maker in town has reasonably priced rainy shoes.
Here are some superb brands I found. You can try these out too.
10 Best Rainy Shoes & Sandals Brands for Women
These brands of best rainy shoes for women also make slippers and sandals for monsoons. Nowadays, they have collections of rainy season footwear. So dive in and take your pick.
If you’re looking for something around Rs.200 to Rs.250, go for this amazing brand of footwear from Paragon.
They are a bit basic if you ask me but that suits our purpose. They don’t really require much maintenance.
I rank Paragon as the best brand of rainy shoes for ladies this year for one main reason. Just look at their sole.
They’re designed for a firm grip on wet and slippery faces. Means, you don’t fall and people don’t laugh.
I’ve been wearing Bata rainy shoes since school days. And I feel like a schoolgirl even now when I wear one.
Forget going down memory lane, but Bata rainy shoes will definitely help you dodge puddles and muddy mess at markets. These are made from synthetic material and waterproof.
It’s easy to maintain them with a good shoe brush and some polish.
The synthetic material dries up overnight unless you’ve taken your shoes for a real swim. With a bit of brush and polish, they are ready to take on the new day.
Light and very comfortable, Sandak rainy shoes for ladies are made of rubber. They are very supple and you don’t actually feel the weight on your feet.
They’ve got shoes and sandals. And with prices around Rs.500 per pair, they are easily affordable. I bought two pairs- a rainy shoe and a sandal.
I’m quite impressed with their sandal straps. They adjust easily so the sandal won’t come off easily even if someone steps on you while boarding a crowded bus or train.
And the Velcro is superb quality- doesn’t wear off easily like cheapo stuff.
Liberty is one of the best and oldest brands of ladies rainy shoes. Their collection is large so you can easily find one to suit your style.
They’ve slippers, sandals and shoes to beat the monsoons, so you take your pick. Usually, I’m a bit cautious about slippers in the rainy season because they tend to break.
And that can be a real nuisance at public places. Even the cobbler can’t fix rubber or plastic-like material.
But it’s different with Liberty brand. Their slippers are rather strong and durable enough to take a heavy beating during monsoons. And if needed, to tackle any roadside Romeos.
If you’re the sporty kind of woman, look for Sparx rainy shoes. They have quite a large collection for the monsoons.
These are superb rainy shoes for 2019 if you have sensitive feet and need total protection against dirty, contaminated water.
But let me warn you: Sparx rainy shoes are slightly heavy. That’s because they’re made with a bit thicker material to provide that added care for your feet.
Wearing Sparx rainy shoes is a sure way to prevent cracked heels and itchy toes due to fungal infection that happens when feet remain wet for long.
And oh for the fashionable ones- Metro. Slightly on the pricier side but not really if you consider the superior material.
Metro shoes are a wonderful monsoon companion especially if you are one of those working at large corporations.
They are very fashionable. To an extent that people won’t know you are wearing regular or rainy shoes. Slightly pricey of course but quality never comes cheap.
Mind you, I said pricey, not expensive. Metro knows no sensible woman will empty her purse only for monsoons shoes. Superb value for money, if you ask me.
Always on the run? Then Action rainy shoes and footwear are your best friend. They are designed for action.
Sporty looks of course but they also have a good range of rainy footwear such as slippers and sandals for everyday use.
And shoes if you prefer wearing something more protective. Action rainy footwear comes in various colours and styles so there’s one to match everything in your wardrobe.
Again very affordable and high quality, will see you through monsoons 2019 and beyond.
We all know Crocs so I won’t croon about them. But here’s something you mightn’t know. Crocs rainy wear is useful round the year.
Especially if you are the type who loves sun and sand and live in coastal India. They aren’t really expensive as you might believe.
A word of caution: There’s tons of fake Crocs floating around, made of cheap material and unsafe for the skin and your entire body.
Fake ones can cause accidents. But genuine Crocs from their brand store or online shopping sites or from a very trustworthy shop only.
Khadim’s has been around for at least 30-40 years if I remember correctly. Even then, Khadim’s rainy shoes were a hallmark of high quality.
Wearing them was prestigious since they weren’t easily available those days, like most good things in India at the time.
Now don’t look for high fashion shoes from Khadim’s. Instead, you’ll find some classic styles that no other rainy shoes maker has in their 2019 collection.
And Khadim’s shoes are still made from the highest grade material that ensures they are durable and worth every Rupee.
Puma, Puma everywhere. Even our Team India uses Puma cricket bats and sports clothing.
Yes, this international sportswear giant does make waterproof shoes for women. You’ll pay a little more for a good Puma shoe or sandal but don’t worry.
They are worth that price. Every Puma footwear- the original one I mean- comes with a guarantee. Go for a Puma if you will be spending lots of time outdoors during monsoons 2019 and beyond. Puma is truly tough.
They are easy to maintain. A simple wash with some soap and water and they’ll be as good as new again.
Listen ladies: maybe you don’t know this. But during rainy season, our feet come into contact with hidden germs and their eggs.
These can cause really bad health problems like bacterial and amoebic infections. Cracked heels are best avoided and so are fungal infections between toes.
One tip, remove your footwear when possible during monsoons. It’s better to allow them to dry and get some air, even when they aren’t wet.
Germs grow rapidly in monsoon. Another tip: sprinkle or coat your rainy shoes insides with some boric acid powder. That kills germs and bad smell.
Caring for our feet is very important during rainy seasons in India. That’s why I suggest you buy rainy shoes and footwear from these best brands in India in 2019.
