It's summer and... it's raining. Such is the beauty of a truly British summer.
Not only does the drizzle affect our after-work and weekend plans (so long, all day barbecue in the park) but it also wreaks havoc with our outfit choices. Our bags become the type of holdalls Mary Poppins would be proud of, stuffed full of brollies, waterproofs and hats, while our sandals get ruined in puddles and we're forced to go to meetings with wet feet.
But at least one of these problems can be solved: flat shoes are most definitely having a moment, meaning the high street is full of gorgeous alternatives to open-toed sandals and flip flops that will keep your feet dry and on-trend.
Here we have picked 20 of our favourite wet weather shoes, from chic boots to waterproof brogues, to help you beat the summer rain once and for all.
