Trendy Monsoon Footwear

Don’t let the monsoon play spoil sport when it comes to wearing your favourite shoes. You need not wear those old pair of sandals that’s on itsway to the bin, just because the rains and muck will spoil your favourite shoes. There’s hope and it comes in lots of colours, variety and the best part is, they’re waterproofed! So take your pick.

What do you get when you blend fashion with comfort? You get stylish waterproof ballerinas for the monsoons, that too in your favourite colours. Ballerinas are flat shoes with round toes that make it very comfortable for office and college goers. Pick them up in bold colours or the sober tones, its time to match your attire no matter how much it pours.

Peep-toes are classic styles from the 80’s that make elegant party shoes. Jazz up your evening party wear with peep-toes that come in high heels – block or pencil heels; and the best part they’re all waterproof.

Pick up those bright coloured Crocs if you haven’t till now. They come in amazing styles, colours, sizes and obviously very comfortable. They are designed in such a way that they not only provide comfort to your feet but have port holes or vents in them that allow your feet to breathe. In fact, these vents don’t allow the rain water to collect in your shoes that can make your feet damp and uncomfortable. This is the best bet, especially during monsoons where you’re required to keep your feet dry. Crocs are available as slip-ons, with straps, as sandals, with or without buckles and the list goes on.

From the world of shoes, can slip-ons be far behind? If ballerinas are not your type, pick up a pair of fine slip-ons that will go with your attire. They’re lace-less, flat and provide a lot of comfort especially if your job profile involves a lot of walking in rain or sunshine. Slip-ons can be worn with formal attire or with casuals and present no hassle of those laces coming off and you having to tie them.

Flip Flops
Flip flops never go out of fashion be it going to the beach or a walk with your dog. They’re easy to maintain, hassle free and best for your feet this monsoon. Most leading shoe brands have introduced affordable range of shoes in bright colours and designs that come in waterproof and acrylic material meant to be worn during the rains.
