The Find: Rainboots for Fall

The bestselling item on this blog for 2019 was a pair of ankle-height Jeffrey Campbell rain boots.  Campbell’s reboot for 2020 has a chunkier sole, which I’m not as into.  So I went searching for an affordable alternative.

These Sam Edelman Tinsley Boots are the epitome of sleek and chic.  The clean lines, small detail on the pull-tab, and flexible sides make it a stylish option for rainy days.  Sizes run from 4-13, medium and wide widths.  There is also a glossy option at Nordstrom Rack.

Want a bit more traction?  These Madewell boots have you covered.  Looking for a more affordable option?  Target’s Chelsea boot is worth a look.

    I purchased the J.Crew Factory Chelsea rain boots this spring and love them. I find them very comfortable — one day I walked about 5 miles in them with no issues. The design is pretty standard Chelsea boot style, which I like — they work well with skinny jeans, and the simple design ensures they don’t scream “these are rain boots,” which is great if you’re wearing them all day in multiple settings.

    Karl Lagerfield Paris made a version of these (Lavali Rubber Chelsea Rain Boots) with extra detailing that I love, I was on the hunt forever for one that wasn’t plain. There’s a few sizes still available.

    I got the Sam Edelman ones a couple of years ago…they are amazing. I got them in black and even started wearing them when it wasn’t raining. They are just a cute bootie!

      Oh good! I don’t need another pair, but I was hoping these were close in comfort and looks. Thanks for the check-in.

    Anyone in the DMV want a pair of last season’s Jeffrey Campbells, size 8? I bought them at the beginning of covid and then totally missed the nordstrom rack return window when the store reopened. Happy to ship locally! (This might be more appropriate for your facebook group, belle, but I’m not an regular Facebooker)

      In the event that these are still available, I’d love to take you up on it! I’m not quite DMV (Richmond) but if that’s too far let me know.
