Inside, our Bobbi ankle rain boots are fully lined with 4mm of neoprene, the same material used in wetsuits. This unique feature makes the Merry People Bobbi boot comfortable and cushioned from heel to toe. The neoprene also serves to keep you warm and cozy in winter and allows our rain boots to be rated for below-freezing temperatures. Since all boots are a bit toasty in the summer months, we recommend pairing your rubber Bobbi boots with natural fibre socks to make them a bit lighter and breathable.
With front and back pull tabs, the Bobbi boot is easy to slide on and off. It also includes a removable insole to allow for more cushion or to create a bit more space for orthotics, bunions, or a wider foot.
Did we mention our boots are cruelty-free and certified vegan by PETA?

Please note, the Merry People short rain boots have been designed to be lifestyle boots. They have not been designed as work safety or snow boots. i.e. they do not have any non-slip accreditations or steel caps. If you are wearing them on ice or slippery situations, we recommend treating them with traction spray
If you are a half size, we recommend sizing down, e.g. if you wear a 7.5, buy a 7. The initial fit should be snug as the natural rubber will soften with wear. If you are uncertain about your boot size, we recommend measuring your foot the inner sole of a favorite shoe, then comparing those measurements to the ones our handy size chart, available here .
Being fabricated with natural materials means our boots will soften and stretch with wear. If they feel a bit too snug at first, we recommend removing the inner sole for the first few days to help with the fit, and you may find that after a few days of wear the boots will have relaxed and you can pop the inner sole back into place. And don’t worry if you need to keep the inner sole out; our Bobbi ankle rain boots are built with arch support and cushion in the main sole ensuring your comfort! We often get asked if our ankle rain boots fit wide feet or if you can stretch your rubber boots. The short answer is yes! The natural outer rubber of our Bobbi ankle boots will soften to allow for wider feet or bunions. Similarly, the inner neoprene lining has similar properties to memory foam and it will soften, stretch and mold to your feet over time.
If, however, the fit doesn’t feel right, you can always return your boots to us for an exchange size or a full refund.
- Do I need to wear socks with my rain boots?
- With a cushy neoprene lining, socks are not necessary but we do recommend wearing them. It will make it easier to get your boots on and off, plus it is also super cute to style your boots with a flashy pair of socks! For some inspiration on the many ways to wear socks with your gumboots, check out our Merry People Ankle Boots Blog.
- Can I wear ankle boots in the snow?
- Yes you sure can! Our Bobbi boot has been tested for sub-zero temperatures keeping your toes dry and toasty-warm.
- Are your rain boots comfortable?
- Our Bobbi boot is built with arch support in the sole and a cushy neoprene lining.
- Can I put orthotics inside the rain boots?
- Yes, the inner sole inside the boots can be removed and replaced with your orthotics. If it still doesn't feel right, you can always return them to us for a full refund.
- Are Merry People Bobbi boots non-slip? Can I wear them to work?
- Merry People boots are not non-slip rated and do not have any work-safe accreditations. We have not designed the boots for work environments, as they intended to be worn as a fashionable waterproof and lifestyle boot.
- Should rain boots be one size bigger?
- No, we recommend the inner sole of the Bobbi boot to be around the same length as your foot (no less). The neoprene lining around your foot will soften over time. We suggest you go with your standard shoe size (don't order bigger for socks.) If you wear thick socks, then measure your foot wearing the thicker socks.
