Sneakers that keep your feet dry are very practical, but typically they're not the most attractive of sneakers.
This is why I was pleasantly surprised to learn about the Nike Soakers ($70.00). This revolutionary women's sneaker is a unique take on the water hybrid shoe, combining a sneaker silhouette with a drainable Phylon midsole and drainage holes in the sock liner so the water runs out as fast as it comes in. The sticky rubber outsole provides supreme grip on wet surfaces. What's more? They're actually pretty cute and you won't look like you're about to embark on a summer long backpacking trip through Europe.
