With the weather as unpredictable as its been, this year, it’s become a dire necessity to show up to work not just stylish, but in a weatherproof ensemble. Many think that you need to sacrifice style to stay element-savvy, but these budget-friendly options on Amazon prove that’s not the case at all.
This style by ECCO infuses contemporary trend with a classic color and silhouette. Made of sturdy leather and an equally sturdy stacked heel, at just over $100, these ankle boots are a steal. They feature foolproof Goretex, so slush won’t be your enemy this year, and you can still look good!
If you like a more classic tan leather, this round-toed oxford is a low-risk alternative. It’s made for all-day comfort, featuring an EVA-cushioned footbed. It’s sleek but traditional – perfect for a classic man. This style will ensure dry feet with a classic aesthetic for the low-maintenance man who doesn’t want to spend too much time thinking about style.
If you’re always complaining about shoes that aren’t breathable, these business casual Rockport oxfords stand out from other models in their collection since they feature Kinetic Air Circulation technology (along with Hydroshield waterproof protection). The sole is a little more jagged and noticeable than the other Rockport models, but we’re into it!
For die-hard perforated fans, this wingtip oxford featuring brogue perforation and a medallion toe is the shoe you’ve been waiting for. Would look very sharp paired with a well-fitted pinstripe or all-black suit look. This model also features that signature Rockport EVA footbed, so your arches won’t be throbbing when hectic work days come around.
Ok, we admit we’re suckers for the Chukka trend. It’s stylish, protective (i.e no gross feeling of water seeping into your dress socks) and the pebbled leather and stitching caught our eye. The most surprising part? This is a boot by Timberland! Not a brand you usually think of for office-friendly, but this is one of our favorites – fans say that scuffs just add to the character and distressed look, so rock these babies daily!
The distressed use of cowhide gives a brand new shoe that cool vintage look without actually purchasing kicks that another dude’s stinky feet have been in. While the ankle closure is a little more flexible and wider than we’re used to (some unwelcome raindrops might make their way in), the shoe itself is waterproof, and the flexibility also has its positives: it makes the shoe very comfortable and lightweight).
