A priority when shopping is to find a pair of boots that “are as waterproof or water-resistant as possible,” Melissa Lockwood, DPM, a podiatrist at Heartland Foot and Ankle Associates in Bloomington, IL, tells Yahoo Lifestyle. Having rain boots that let in moisture can increase your risk of blisters or developing a fungal or bacterial infection, she says.

As a rule, you’ll want to avoid galoshes, i.e., boots you wear over your shoes, Lockwood says. These don’t have good support and can put you at risk of developing plantar fasciitis, a painful inflammation of the thick band of tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes, she says. However, boots with a heel are okay and even recommended.
