Rainy day chic with Crocs rain boots & sneakers
If you’ve always equated Crocs with the plastic, multi-coloured clogs that are a staple of lazy Sundays out, then get ready to be pleasantly surprised by their latest shoe offering: Waterproof rain boots, sneakers and slip-ons, all perfect for Singapore’s fickle weather.
Made with Crocs’ signature Croslite™ material – the stuff that makes Crocs sandals light, waterproof and comfortable – these rain boots, sneakers and slip-ons are both practical and stylish. Available in so many styles and colours, you will be hard pressed not to find something to go with your every outfit.
When you’re darting to work in the pouring rain, don’t tip-toe in trepidation but put on the super-light Patent Wellie Rain Boot ($114.90) or the RainFloe Boot ($129), which comes with a soft inner fabric lining.
Not only are these rain boots easy to pull on and take off, they are also equipped with rubber outsole pods that provide extra traction on slippery surfaces.
The Patent Wellie Boot comes in four fantastic colours – black, fuschia, ocean blue and ultraviolet, while the RainFloe boot comes in navy and black.
For those who have always dreamed of a lightweight sneaker, with the cushioned comfort and breathability of a Crocs clog, that shoe has arrived. Your feet will love the CrosMesh™ Hover Lace Up ($114.90) which look very much like classic sneakers but feel nothing like the usual.
Unlike your typical canvas sneaker, the Hover Lace Up is made with a woven, waterproof Croslite™ upper that will keep your feet cool and ventilated and Croslite™ soles for total form-fitting comfort. Take your pick from espresso, red or parrot-green sneaker shades.
Other go-to waterproof shoes for the rainy season include the CrosMesh™ Ballet Flat ($79.90) and the CrosMesh™ Hover Skimmer Women ($84.90), all made with breathable Croslite™ uppers.
Finally, if you’re a sneaker purist, then you can still choose from Crocs’ range of traditional sneakers and slip-ons made with canvas uppers and classic stitching details, such as the Hover Slip On Denim ($89.90), the Hover Plim plimsoll shoe ($94.90) and the high-top Hover Mid lace-up sneaker ($94.90).
The special touch that makes these shoes different from your usual lace-up? They’re much lighter and come with Crocs’ signature comfort cushioning, of course.
