Mens Gumboots: The Bobbi Rain Boot Style Guide for Men

The Bobbi Boots for Men - Merry People

The Bobbi Rain Boot Style Guide for Men

Gumboots are an essential part of every man’s wardrobe.  Sure, it is easy enough to put together a nice outfit and accessories 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 and need protective footwear, 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 Operations Manager Tim! These mens gumboots are perfect for everything from sports games, fashionable footwear, or a night out to fishing in bogs, hiking and camping, or as muck boots for the yard. Our Bobbi footwear will match your favorite clothing items and accessories.

Seamlessly merging fashion and function, the mens Bobbi ankle boot is the perfect that 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! 

You can shop our collection of footwear to find the perfect men's gumboot to add to your clothing wardrobe. Choosing new footwear can be a challenge, so we make the process easy by providing you with all the information and support you need. On our mens product pages, you'll find customer reviews, details about shipping and delivery, size options, and more. And if you find that your footwear isn't the right fit, you can always ship the boots back. 

For inspiration on when and where you can wear your new mens boots, 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 AU size 13, and our gumboots will soften and stretch with wear to give a bit more space.)
