Run in the rain with these high-top waterproof shoes

There's nothing worse than going out for a run and getting caught in a rainshower midway through. While the water might feel great on the rest of your body to cool you off, it doesn't feel great on your feet. Now you have to finish your run in wet tennis shoes and soggy socks. Thankfully, there's another option that might have you wanting to run in the rain when it's hot outside.

Puddles don’t stand a chance against V-TEX waterproof shoes

Wet tennis shoes and socks are a couple of the worst things. But sometimes they can’t be avoided. And even when you know you’re going to be in the rain and try to dress to prepare for it, your shoes are always the weak link. Somehow, someway, water finds its way in, and you’re stuck in wet socks the rest of the day. And if you live in Seattle, that might be your every day. Lucky for you, we’ve found the high-top waterproof shoes to fix this problem.

V-TEX will keep your feet dry in any weather, and they’ll look good while doing so. If you’ve been looking for a new pair of shoes, look no further. V-TEX has thought of everything you could need in a pair of tennis shoes. Your toes have never had it so good.

V-TEX high-top waterproof shoes will keep your feet dry

If you’ve ever gone to Disney World, you know the best day to go is on a rainy day. Everyone else stays home, and you have the park to yourself. It’s glorious. There are practically no lines for anything. And we all know how long of a wait the Peter Pan ride is. Sure, there are a few rides that don’t run continuously, but you can easily catch those when there’s a break in the rain. You’re able to go on more rides in one day than you’ve ever gone on before.

You’ll be comfortable and dry when you’re wearing these breathable shoes

Except, it’s raining. And you have to wear one of those awful ponchos, and your feet are absolutely soaked by the end of the day. If you’re a planner, you may have packed an extra pair of socks, but that’s only going to get you so far. Next time, you’ll slay Magic Kingdom or Star Wars land in the rain if you have a pair of V-TEX high-top waterproof shoes in your suitcase. Of course, we can’t do anything about the poncho bit.

These slide-on shoes have 12 features

You’ll be ready for any conditions with V-TEX. Check out how many features these awesome shoes have.

Breathable nanotech

You’d think waterproof material wouldn’t be breathable, right? Nope. V-TEX figured out how to keep water out of your shoes and your feet as fresh as can be.


Water doesn’t stand a chance at getting into these waterproof shoes. You’re even able to submerge them, and your feet will stay dry.


Super-hot day? You’re fine. Spill a scalding-hot cup of coffee on your feet? You’re fine. These heat-resistant shoes have you covered up to 200°C.


Wait . . . cold and hot? Yup. Your V-Tex high top waterproof shoes can withstand temperatures all the way down to -15°C.


We all slide our shoes on without socks to run an errand or two. V-TEX’s antibacterial design keeps your shoes odor-free.


That coffee you spilled on your feet earlier? No worries; it will easily wash off. These breathable shoes have a stain-proof knit design, so your kicks will stay looking just as fresh as your feet feel.

Ultra-comfortable cloud design

Not only will your feet be dry, but they’ll also feel like you’re walking on air with the V-TEX cloud insole. It will provide the best comfort by forming specifically to your foot.


These shoes are lightweight on your feet and in your suitcase, so you’ll want to take them and wear them everywhere.


Running on the beach is great for your calves, but all that sand in your shoes is awful. Don’t worry about it with these high-top shoes. They’ll keep the sand out so you won’t have to take them off and dump half the beach out of them when you get back to the car.


It might not seem like you need wind-proof shoes, but, if you get a gust of cold wind while you’re running, you won’t need to worry about cold feet.


Animal lovers rejoice! There is finally a shoe for you that doesn’t compromise on quality. Since we all know how hard and expensive it can be to find vegan tennis shoes.

Lots of options to choose from

These high-top waterproof shoes come in an array of colors, styles, and sizes. The shoes come in UK sizes 4–12. If you aren’t familiar with what your UK size is, don’t worry. V-TEX has instructions on its website for how to figure out the best size for you. The company makes it clear and easy to do, which is fantastic, since many other companies don’t provide that information.

The low-top shoe option

Not everyone likes to wear high-top shoes, so this shoe has a height of 2.8 inches. It comes in a variety of colors: Swallow Black, Midnight Gray, Cozy Gray, and Sonic Red.

Your conscience will breathe easy, too, with these vegan shoes

The high-top shoe option

This shoe has a height of 4.7 inches. You’ll be covered in some pretty deep puddles, for sure. This shoe comes in different but similar color options: Ninja Blue, Abundany Orange, Ninja Red, Flax Gray, and Silver Ninja.

What we ❤️

We love that V-TEX thought of more than just being waterproof. It thought about comfort and keeping the shoes stain-resistant, which are fantastic additions. Most importantly, we love that these shoes are vegan.

What we’d ❤️ to see in the future

V-TEX offers a lot of options for its shoes, but we’d love to see just a few more in future designs. We’d love to see an option for wider feet, and we’d love to see a few more colors. Perhaps a blush/mauve/rose gold, a light blue, and a white.
