The Bobbi Rain Boot Style Guide for Men
Gumboots are essential part of every man’s wardrobe. Sure, it is easy enough to put together a nice outfit with sneakers or leather boots - but what do you do when the weather turns? Investing in a stylish pair of rain-ready boots will keep you looking on point all day, no matter where your journey takes you.
But many rain boots are not designed with fashion in mind. Sure, tall boots are amazing when you are working outside, but what about when you are heading to the pub with friends or camping in summer? Enter our best-selling Bobbi rain boot!
As an ankle boot with a timeless Chelsea-style, Merry People Bobbi gumboots are perfect for guys searching for weatherproof footwear that pairs well with jeans, trousers, or even floral print shorts - as highlighted below by our Ops Manager Tim!
Seamlessly merging fashion and function, the Bobbi ankle boot will keep guys looking sharp (and dry) all day whether you are working on a farm, commuting across the city, partying at an outdoor festival, or having dinner with friends. We don’t want your perfect men’s rain boot to be a one-trick pony, pulled out begrudgingly on rainy days; rather they should be boots you feel confident wearing on a normal day - wherever that takes you!
Keep scrolling to see the many ways and places guys have worn our Bobbi wellies!
(If you aren’t sure of your size, be sure to check out our updated Size Chart for mens sizing. Our Bobbi Boot is a unisex design and we currently fit up to a men’s size 11.5 (28.7cm), and our gumboots will soften and stretch with wear to give a bit more space.)
