With snow, sleet and even squalls starting to appear on your weather app, you’ve probably been dusting off all your cold weather ready scarves, gloves and hats that had been stored away since the summer.
And while you’ve finally found a warm enough puffer coat and shearling lined snow boots, you might have missed out getting a pair of good ol’ rain boots. Now that the ground is going to be covered with leftover mud and snow, rain boots can be an essential, especially if you’re not particularly into bulky footwear.
If you’re looking for a pair, you really can’t go wrong with one of the most beloved boot brands, Hunter. HuffPost readers loved Hunter’s Original Tour Glass Packable Rain Boots on Black Friday (and that style is still $100 at Nordstrom, down from $150).
But for today, Dec. 20, we found a pair of Hunter boots that are majorly marked down at Zappos. Select colors (three out of four) of the Hunter Original Play Boot Short Rain Boots on sale right now.
Originally $95, both the “zinc” color, which is light gray, and the “stratus/flare” color, which is a darker gray with red and light gray accents, are on sale for $50. The “kombu/navy” color is only slightly pricer at $57.
These boots are constructed from a natural rubber and are fully waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about getting any slush from the sidewalk on them.
With a cushioned footbed that has a multilayered sponge insole, these boots are meant to be comfortable for your commute, too. They have a slight platform so they’re a little different than standard Hunter boots.
Plus if you’re more of a fan of ankle boots, these boots are shorter and easy to slip on. They comes in women’s sizes 5 to 10.
It’ll be spring in no time anyways, so you’ll be breaking these in way before the start of April showers.
