The Complete List of Waterproof Barefoot Shoes for Rain

I get asked EVERY DAY for waterproof barefoot shoes that are good for your feet. You see, traditional rain boots have a chunky heel that can really throw off your alignment and cause all kinds of issues in your body. But a completely flat and flexible rain boot is hard to find!

I’ve compiled a list of all the waterproof, water resistant, and rubber rain boots (for kids and adults) that meet my strict requirements for healthy footwear. Don’t let the weather keep you from getting outside! Read on for the full list of barefoot waterproof shoes below.

How to Waterproof Your Shoes

Before we get to the waterproof barefoot shoe options, let’s discuss ways you can make use of the shoes you have. Keep in mind that treating your shoes with a waterproofing agent can change the way they look. Leather often gets significantly darker with impregnating waxes and can even change in texture. While these products are usually very effective, a shoe spray is a better alternative if you don’t want to change the way your shoes look.

There are not too many barefoot rubber rain boot options yet, but here are a few good ones for adults. Fun fact, you can turn any rain boots into thermal ones with a boot liner! Consider sizing up in the Amazon ones for toe space.

  1. Do you have any tips for caring for rubber boots? I had the Tretorn Skerry boots for a few years but the rubber started cracking.

  2. Lems waterproof Boulder Boots have become my go-to during Florida’s (torrential) rainy season.
    Also loving the new ‘Wear This, Not That” series 🙂

  3. Hi Anya, Looking into the Tretorn Gus fleecelined rainboots. They don’t advertise as zero drop/barefoot and look like they have a substantial sole. Do you have any direct experience with them?

    1. I don’t have first hand experience with them, but I’ve read lots of reviews in the BST Minimalist shoe Facebook Group. Based off of everyone’s experiences there they are zero drop, flexible enough to roll into a ball, but the sole is heavier than most barefoot shoe brands. Also, not overly narrow, but also not super wide.

  4. Thanks so, so much for this post. I was grieving the death of my old Vivobarefoot wellies that I loved and couldn’t replace, trying to accept the fact that I would now have to own a pair of “normal” heeled stiff boots that I’d probably avoid using. I went through each of your links and ended up buying a pair of Urberg (the shorter model as the one you linked wasn’t available on my size). I had to return it twice until I was happy with the size and it was totally worth it, gosh they are just amazing. I wore them in a 5 mile walk today and enjoyed every step. And they were much cheaper than the top brands in the uk, returns included. I hope they will last longer than my Vivos, they are built differently so hopefully they will.

  5. I am interested in the Asgard and the Tretorn, in the photos they don’t look very wide in the toe box, they look quite tapered. Are you able to provide any information on that aspect? Thank you for all the good information.

    1. I have heard from a number of people that the Asgard are really good, and even wide enough for extra wide feet. The Treton I have also heard good things, but I’ve only talked to a couple people who’ve tried them. From what I can tell the Asgard are wider (or at least very soft and flexible so it spreads out with your foot).

Hi. I'm Anya.

Hi. I'm Anya.

I first discovered “barefoot shoes” after a long bout of foot issues. I realized that with some extra research (and a whole new set of standards), I could curate shoes that made me feel amazing and didn’t require any compromises. I started my blog Anya’s Reviews to share what I learned with others.
