12 rain-appropriate shoes that are actually stylish


12 rain-appropriate shoes that are actually stylish

From Givenchy to Asos

By ELLE team  June 14th, 2017

’90s kids will remember that the start of the monsoon brought with it paper boats, indoor play time and the ugliest shoes money can buy. Practicality was the only condition when shopping for new kicks, as multiple shoe bites proved that even comfort could be done away with. But it’s 2017 and the magic of worldwide delivery and upscale stores like Berleigh have come to the rescue of our embattled soles.

At Asos, we discovered attention-grabbing gladiator sandals that would make Chanel bossman Karl Lagerfeld proud. Keeping the Greco-Roman vibe strong, winged flats from Ancient Greek Sandals will make those dreary monsoon mornings brighter. Declare your love for all things Rihanna with the Fenty X Puma jelly slides, available in limited quantities in India.  

Closer home, look to Tresmode, Ajio and The Label Life who’ve shouldered part of the burden of reimagining the typical rain shoe, with PVC brogues, jelly ballerinas and platform flats in bright metallics.
