Kamik's Classic Vegan Rain Boots


It’s been a rainy September thus far in New York, which hasn’t been so great for the U.S. Open this week. There’s been no shortage of rain delays, one of which included the much-anticipated Roddick/Del Potro match last night. (Roddick, I’m pulling for you!)

Whether you’re looking to be fashionable in the rain at the Open, or simply want better boots to walk around the streets, check out these rain boots from Kamik, made from vegan, PVC-free synthetic rubber. The “Jennifer” features a nylon lining for slipping on and off, a removable EVA comfort insole, and a lightweight and durable outsole. Coolest of all, each pair is 100 percent recyclable.
