Two words: rubber sole. 

 Yeah, your sneakers have them too, but they won't quite cut it in the rain and snow. And with weekends in Tahoe, holiday travels and Bay Area rain in the forecast, it's time to step it up a notch. Luckily, waterproof no longer just means Wellingtons. 

From handsome, coated leathers to high-top rubber "sneakers," gear up for the wet weather ahead – without sacrificing your style.
