No packing list is complete and no suitcase is fully packed without at least one pair of waterproof shoes. And according to thousands of Amazon shoppers, these affordable rain boots are the perfect pair — especially if you don’t want to spend a fortune.

All of Slogger’s Comfort Boot rain boots, which are Amazon’s best-selling wellies, are currently going for $40 or less — including several fun patterns that are on sale. Amazon shoppers can get the 4.6-star waterproof boots, which usually retail for around $45, with Prime shipping for as low as $28 right now.

The super popular rain boots have racked up over 2,500 five-star reviews with shoppers praising the style for its comfort, versatility, and affordable price point. Owners love its cushy “all-day-comfort” insoles (hello, arch support!) and light weight, making them easy to pack and grab for a long day of walking and sightseeing. “Five years later, I can say these are the most comfortable rain boots I’ve ever worn,” one Amazon reviewer wrote.

“All my previous rain boots each lasted me for a little over a year until they fell apart,” another chimed in. “Besides looking stylish, Sloggers rain boots are very comfortable and have a sturdy foot support. So far, these are the most comfortable rain boots I have ever owned.”

The comfy wellies are ideal for travel, as well as for gardening, commuting to work, walking your dog, and more. Owners so they’re so supportive, you might forget to take them off. “They were so comfortable that some days I would wear them around the house after getting home, making dinner, doing dishes, etc. and not even realize I still had them on!” another reviewer wrote.

While some other popular rain boots can cost upwards of $100, these classic boots, which are made from recycled materials, are just as durable and even more supportive than some of those high-end options, according to shoppers. Plus, their wide 15.5-inch opening, which hits at mid-calf, accommodates a more diverse range of sizes and shapes.

“If I could give these rain boots a higher rating I would,” one reviewer wrote. “I have huge calves and can never find the right rain boots. These hit right below my calves and fit well with a pair of jeans on. I may be in shoe heaven.”

Aside from their comfort and size inclusivity, they’ll do just what they’re designed for — keep your feet dry — in all kinds of conditions. “I got these because I needed some waterproof shoes while visiting the beaches in Seattle. Got caught in a couple tide waves and these kept 100 percent of the water out, no problem,” one reviewer wrote. “Also wore them in snow — no slush on my socks. And in the rain, dry as a bone. Overall, best water boots I have found so far.”

And since they cost less than $40, you don’t have to worry about getting them muddy or a little scuffed up on your next adventure. They’ll last you years, according to shoppers, but they’re inexpensive enough to easy to replace, too.
