As we bid adieu to the scorching summers, we welcome the monsoon with open arms. The rains bring along with them some wonderful things – petrichor (the earthy scent we all love produced when rain falls on dry soil), multiple cups of steaming tea and the gratifying smile on your rain-soaked face.
We love to get drenched in the rains, but are afraid that splashing through the puddles might ruin our favorite footwear. But don’t fret, we bring the best options for fashionable and functional footwear for you to choose from as you splash in the puddles!
With a wide variety to choose from in terms of colour and designs, flip flops are a good option. They make excellent monsoon companions because they are washable, quick to dry and easy to maintain. You can also make a choice in material, with flip flops made of both PVC and rubber available in the market.
Crocs are a matter of debate – some love them, some don’t. Nonetheless, they are a great option for the monsoon. They are extremely functional as even though your feet are covered, the little holes keep them in a breathable state. With a better grip and rubber core, crocs are available in an array of colourful options to choose from.
Floaters are your best bet for a casual look while maintaining functionality. Highly comfortable for your feet, and water resistant, they are suitable for the worst of monsoon conditions. Just like flip flops, these too, are easy to maintain footwear.
A match made in heaven, there in nothing better than gum boots to protect your feet during monsoons. Available in an extensive collection in terms of prints and colours, they are waterproof and protect the feet from mud, dirt and water. You can choose from knee high boots to short ones, depending on your style and fashion statement.
Shoes made out of PVC and Lycra exist and they are great for the monsoon. Durable and stylish, they score high in colour and design. You can pair them up with any of your outfits and make a fashion statement.
