20 Best Short Rain Boots In Every Style & Trend!

Style expert, journalist and fashion blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 20 of the best short rain boots in every top style, color and trend.

 

 

The mini rain boot/short rain boot trend is hotter than ever, and I’m so happy I jumped on the bandwagon. We were living in drought-like conditions for three years so my tall Hunter boots hadn’t been touched since 2019. Shockingly, this season we’re breaking records for the amount of rain we’ve had over the last few months. In October I contemplated buying a pair of short rain boots after the first storm, but after the second and third, I knew that it was time as it seemed as though the rain may never let up. 

I have a few pairs of tall rain boots, but they can be quite heavy. I wanted a pair that was lightweight and durable when I walk my dogs, run errands, or feed my ducks. After spotting these waterproof leopard print Ugg classic clear mini boots, I knew I had to have them and I’ve been obsessed with them for months! I practically live in them. I love that they’re easy to slip on and off and keep my feet dry and my socks clean!

Mini rain boots look great with joggers, leggings, and jeans. With many of us still working from home, now is a great time to invest in a cozy pair of short rain boots that are not only perfect for winter, but spring too. They’ll also be a favorite come fall with a shacket and jeans. 

If you’re searching for a cozy and warm pair of low cut rain boots, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 20 of the best short rain boots you’ll adore in a variety of styles, colors, and price ranges.

Must Have Ugg Classic Clear Mini Boots

If you’ve followed the blog for years, you know how much I love leopard print! I firmly believe one can never have too much animal print or leopard print!! When I stumbled on these cute leopard print Ugg classic clear mini boots I knew I had to have them. The height is perfect to wear with my super warm faux fur joggers on chilly days, and they’re ideal for all my winter chores outdoors.

The rain boots are lined with faux-shearling, so they’re warm. According to the website “This boot has been weather-rated to temperatures as low a -4ºF.” It doesn’t get that cold here, we have a dry cold that dips into the high 20s at the lowest, and they definitely keep my feet warm.

I love that the short rain boots have a clear layer, so they don’t get ruined in the rain! I’m not sure if all Ugg boots are made in whole sizes? I typically wear an 8.5, and half sizes aren’t offered for this particular shoe, so I went with a 9. I will say I think I could’ve gone with a size 8 and would have been just fine. My foot is fairly narrow! They fit perfectly with thick socks, which make them extra warm, so that’s a plus.

I highly recommend these boots. They look great with skinny jeans, straight-leg denim, joggers, and leggings to name a few. I typically go through a pair of Ugg boots every season due to getting them dirty, but since these have a clear coating, I don’t envision buying a new pair for at least a few years!
