Best Overall Men's Rain Boots
The Kamik Icebreaker is an exceptional boot
, appropriate for use in a variety of environments and conditions. Not only for rainy days, our reviewers loved wearing this boot on cold-weather camping and climbing trips, too. It received high scores across our board of metrics, especially in comfort and warmth. It keeps your feet plenty warm on those wet, nasty days and its inner removable liner will add some plush cushioning all around your feet. This does, though, make it inappropriate to wear when temperatures rise. The Icebreaker's tread is also versatile, with a mixture of deep lugs for traction in soft ground and some larger lugs for great surface contact when you're back on concrete and pavement. Compared to the other heavy duty, insulated models in this review, this pair is the lightest of its type. Additionally, it features a drawstring around the top of the shaft so you can cinch down the top of the boot to prevent debris from entering and keep heat from escaping. Plus, our Editors' Choice Award winner is the second least expensive model of them all, costing only $65!
Top Pick for Mild Weather
The LaCrosse Hampton is comfortable and easy to use
, performing best in temperate climates. This model doesn't have excessive insulation, which makes it great for a wide range of temperatures. Its short shaft helps make it one of the most comfortable products we tested. It fits snugly around the foot and the EVA foam midsole offers enough cushioning that you won't even want to take them off. The tread is also one of the smoothest of all the products we tested, ideal for use around town or camp, but it lacks enough traction to be used in heavy-duty off-road situations. The Hampton is lightweight, too, and slides on and off like butter. Lastly, it's sleek yet discreet style keeps your footwear from standing out on rainy days in the city. If you need a comfy, easy to use, and stylish rain boot to wear around town on days when the skies look foreboding, the Hampton is an excellent choice.
