Chooka Rain Boots Review (Stylish in the Rain)

Every fashionista knows how difficult it is to stay stylish in the rain. Not only will your hair become a complete mess, but chances are that your feet will be soaking wet if you prioritize looks over functionality.

Well, the good news is you no longer have to choose between the two. With Chooka rain boots, you are guaranteed that your feet will stay dry, warm and comfortable. And, they look absolutely gorgeous.

We'll take a look at some of the most popular styles of Chooka rain boots, and help you decide which pair you should get for yourself.

What to Look For

Style

The Chooka rain boots are probably the prettiest looking rubber boots out there. You can choose from a variety of different styles, colors, prints, and finishes. Whether you are looking for a rain boot that you can wear with everything, or a classic one, you will be able to find something you like.

The great thing about having options is that you don't have to have a full length boot to keep dry. And, you don't have to forgo style. Even boring old rain boots are stylish these days! 

Height

Chooka made sure to include something for everyone, and with a variety of styles, the variety of boot heights is expected. Chooka rain boots come in ankle length, mid-calf length, and classic knee length.  

If you find yourself out in muddy or very rainy conditions a lot, you might want to go for a longer boot. Just keep in mind that this also means that they will cover your legs up to the knee, or thereabouts, so it will affect what you can (and want to) wear.

If you only want the added security of full-waterproofing without the height, I would go for an ankle boot. The clothing options are far greater with something a lot lower.

Affordability

Chooka rain boots are on the pricier side. Their average retail price is usually under one hundred dollars, but you can get them cheaper on Amazon. In any case, be sure to check out their return policy, in case you are not satisfied with your purchase. 


Chooka Women's Bainbridge Mid Boot Black 9 M US

Chooka Bainbridge Fleece Lined Rain Boot, Navy, 9 M US

The Chooka Bainbridge rain boots are stunning, 12“ tall rubber boots. They come in many different colors, and they have a smooth mate finish. At first glance, you can't even tell that they're rubber boots, which makes them a great addition to any outfit for a cold, rainy day.

They look great with both skirts and pants, and they are a great fashionable solution for your wet feet. You'll also be very cozy in them, because the inside of the boots is lined with soft plush. And there is a memory foam insole, for your utmost comfort.

The only downside is the price which is a little bit steep for a pair of rubber boots. But even that is not a big issue, because you can find them much cheaper on Amazon.com. And, the manufacturer suggests that you should order half a size down, because they tend to be a little big.

Chooka Women's Tall Memory Foam Rain Boot, Teal, 7 M US

Chooka Women's Tall Memory Foam Rain Boot, Hattie, 10 M US

These tall boots are a staple of a rainy day outfit. Their 15“ height makes them great to pair with skirts and dresses on a chilly, wet day. They come in 7 different colors, but the color Teal is our absolute favorite.

These Chooka rain boots are made from rubber, but the buckle detail is all leather. Naturally, they are completely waterproof, with Ultra HS Rubber, and a hard rubber inner-sole board with steel shank for support.

Since comfort is a big problem with your typical rain boots, it's a good thing that these beauties have a memory foam insole. And, that buckle isn't just for decoration; you can adjust the width of the boots to fit you best.

However, we did come across some customer complaints about the quality of these boots. Sometimes the boots would crack easily, which obviously does not give you the best value for your money. This is a problem that only a small number of people have encountered, but you should still take it into consideration.

Product Information

  • Material: Rubber with leather detailing and antique metal hardware
  • Height: 15”
  • Lining: Moisture-absorbent polyester/cotton blend

Pros

  • Beautiful design
  • Leather details

Cons

  • Questionable quality
  • Price

Bainbridge Fleece Lined Chelsea Bootie

Chooka Women's Classic Chelsea Alice Gray Matte Boot

The Bainbridge Chelsea rain boot is a good choice if you prefer to wear ankle booties. They are adorable and they look more like shoes than rubber boots, so they are a good addition to any outfit. They come in several solid colors and prints, so there is a lot of variety to choose from. The design of these Chooka rain boots is beautiful; they look nothing like waterproof rubber boots.

These Chooka rain boots are easy to quickly pull on with side-stretch goring. And once you pull them on, your feet will stay dry and warm. The memory foam insole helps your feet stay comfortable if you are always on the move. The newer models of these boots have plush lining on the inside, to ensure your coziness.

However, these booties are hard to break in, so if you have sensitive skin on your ankles, you might want to skip buying them. Some customers have complained that the boots tore the skin on their ankles, so this is something you should watch out for.

They are also pricey, especially for ankle boots – the cheapest you can get them for is a bit over 50 bucks. But they do look great, right?

Product Information

  • Material:  Rubber with nylon tab detailing and elastic gore
  • Height: 5.5”
  • Lining: Plush

Pros

  • Beautiful design
  • Easy to pull on

Cons

  • Tough to break in
  • Price
