Rainy Day Kicks
Still checking the weather reports on your phone to see if it’s safe to wear your most prized sneakers? Not to worry, Capital offers these rainy season friendly options. These pairs eliminate the hassle of having to bring an extra pair of shoes or slippers to deal with the erratic downpour.
When looking for kicks ready for the rain, leather is a good material as it naturally repels water. Going for a predominantly dark colored sneaker is also a great choice as it is able to hide minor dirt and dust.
Can a shoe actually be rain-friendly and still have a futuristic feel? Look no further as the Air Max 97 UL ’17 does just that. The black fuse upper and full length Air unit ensures that walking in these, even when it’s pouring, will be a breeze and not to mention comfortable.
The Samba Rose takes cues from the legendary Samba shoe and is quickly shaping up to be an instant classic. Aside from the leather construction, the shoe’s elevated sole keeps you above puddles or streams of water. You won’t have to be tippy-toeing the next time it suddenly rains cats and dogs.
Dressed in a dark olive hue, this PUMA Basket Leather won’t give you much trouble even if you encounter one of Manila’s famed floods. The deconstructed style on these promises to wear in even better as you put this through your everyday wear.
Save for minor white details, the ASICS Gel Lyte V Stingray is completely black which makes it a low maintenance option especially for those rainy months. The textured leather on this pair makes dirt slip off easy so you don’t have to worry.
Who says you can’t dress up when it’s raining? The VEJA Esplar Low in this black and white colorway gives you a classy option that’s good whether it rains or shines.
