The Best Socks to Wear with your Rain Boots!

Back to all

Do You Wear Socks With Rain Boots??

This is a question we hear all the time and the answer is - it's up to you!  Our wellies are lined with neoprene to make them soft and cushy inside so socks are not required for comfort; however, wearing socks can make it a bit easier to slip the rain boots on and off.  

But wearing socks with your rain boots is more than about practical needs - its also about fashion! While any old sock will work for comfort, we find that pairing up a cute sock with your Bobbi rain boots is a quick and easy way to add personality to your outfit. The right sock can tone down a printed dress and your Bobbi Rain Boots in Beetroot, or act as a color bridge to marry your Bobbi Rain Boots in Pear Green with the rest of your outfit.  

To help inspire your gumboot and sock personal style, we have rounded up some of our favourite gumboot and sock pairings! We’ve also included a list of some of our favourites spots to shop excellent socks to spruce up any outfit.
