With wet fall weather just around the corner, now is a great time to take stock of your existing wardrobe and fill in any gaps before the seasons change. There’s nothing worse than soggy feet after stepping outside, making waterproof boots a must-have ahead of planning any kind of outdoor activity.

Whether it’s walking the dog, running everyday errands or commuting to and from work, a solid pair of boots needs to hold up to the tough conditions of unpredictable Canadian weather. Ideal for rain, snow and sleet, waterproof styles are a seasonal workhorse that you’ll find yourself turning to again and again.
