We’ve selected practical and stylish footwear that will keep you looking and feeling your best despite the gloomy weather, as rain forecasts have recently become the norm. These top five pairs are perfect for going to work, school, or your upcoming trip with the barkada!
THE MERRELL HYDRO MOC & HYDRO RUNNER
From its introduction late last year of a few mens colorways, we’re super excited that Merrell just dropped new Hydro Moc colors and ladies options. It’s garnered rave reviews from users in the city, trail and beach with its lightweight comfy clog design and strategically placed perforations draining water instantly, leaving your feet feeling fresh all day. What’s more, they’re now made with 10% BLOOM® algae making it more eco-friendly! Cop them at www.merrell.com.ph, Merrell concept stores, Complex Lifestyle Stores, and top department stores nationwide.
For those seeking a more covered shoe that gives major sneakerhead vibes, Merrell’s new Hydro Runner is for you. Like the Hydro Moc, it features a perforated EVA shell for a lightweight and flexible fit, but this shoe is further equipped with breathable mesh lining and a grippy lugged outsole. Rain or shine, Merrell’s Hydro Runner is perfect for swagging your streetwear style while keeping cool. Find them at Merrell concept stores and department stores nationwide.
THE KEDS ROWAN RAIN BOOT
Best known for their fun and feminine sneakers, Keds is giving us a reason to love the rainy weather with its cute new rain boots. The Rowan is fashioned after the sleek Chelsea boot silhouette and has a waterproof rubber upper. For something a little playful, check out the Keds x Rifle Paper Co. versions featuring the latter’s signature floral prints and patterns. If you want a little rocker edge to your look, nothing beats solid black or burgundy. Check these out and more from www.keds.com.ph and retail stores nationwide.
THE SPERRY A/O FLOAT & WATER STRIDER
A company called Sperry is most known for its boat shoes, which since they originated from the water already qualify as rainy day necessities. Since then, the company has released two new pairs of EVA-made water-friendly shoes for all-day comfort. With their perforated uppers, the A/O Float Boat Shoes and Water Striders rapidly drain water, making them essentials for every weather situation.
