How rain boots are adapted for different foot shapes and sizes
Rain boots, as functional footwear, mainly give the wearer not only the ability to keep their feet dry, but also better traction in wet, sloppy, muddy environments or cold weather. As practical footwear, we already discussed how to choose the right size to pursue our daily working and outdoor activities: is there a need to be one size larger or one size smaller? Maybe you get an idea of the size issue. Today we would be glad to explore with you another topic: how rain boots are adapted for different foot shapes and sizes.
Following are the tips to adapt for different foot shapes and sizes:
As with other casual boots, rain boot has a full-size set to satisfy different foot lengths and widths.
The rain boot size range is the same as other shoes. Usually, for kids, sizes range from 18 to 38, available for both babies to big children; for men, sizes usually range from 39 to 46; for ladies’ are 35 to 41.
Usually, the width of rubber boots would be the same amount as our casual shoes, and will not be extra width or length. So there is no need to be one size large to buy rubber boot.
2. Rubber boots’ accessories help to better adjust your foot.
We could see there some fashionable rain boot that would have a zipper, buckle, or shoelace. Some of them are for decoration, but most of them have real functions for us.
May you could get to know most boots the top opener is wider than our common dress shoes. But there would have a buckle or adjustable strap around it. Any special reasons for it?
1. They could help us to better fit our calf.
The material of rain boots is light weight usually made of PVC and rubber, and the boot shaft and top opener are not elastic. Also, these rain boots are functional boots, and the top opener would be wider than our daily boots. As a result, the buckle or strap could adjust according to the wearer’s calf width and let the wearer have a better-wearing feeling.
On the other hand, the buckle or strap has another key importance to the wearer which is to tighten the top of the rubber boot, so that the boots will be closed around the foot and ankle, reducing the risk of hurting the ankle.
Especially the tall rubber work boots, the tall shaft would with neoprene lining, then the buckle would be very important to adjust the width keeping pant legs dry all the time.
Anyway, the adjustable accessories provide us with a perfect combination of a better wearing feel, more comfort, and safety. Most rain boots with buckles offer a range of benefits that can help you achieve a better fit, greater comfort, and improved support in wet weather.

2. Different heights would be better to suit the walking situation.
For example, today we are going to wet grass, then a pair of ankle rain boots are a good option, but if we need to have an outdoor activity with heavy mud, there is a need for a good pair of knee-high rain boots. The short, light rain boots more easily control our balance and move flexibly; the tall boots, are very nice for harsh situations like deep water, or heavy mud ground.
Anyway, there are various heights of rain boots, but each design has its own style. That’s the reason the factory will supply rubber boots in so many different heights to markets to cater to your different habits.

Rain boots’ insole material usually is EVA with fleece covering and TPE (have memory and would make the wearing the pair of shoes more comfortable to wear during rainy weather and long time walking).
