Rain. Don't you just love it? Shoewawa HQ is currently looking a bit like a laundry, with our socks hanging out to dry on the radiators and up-ended shoes draining off the last of the deluge and looking very sorry for themselves indeed. With no end to the wet forecast in sight it's now time to get serious and put our wellies on, so here are a few styles we've picked out that can keep us dry while reminding that summer really is on its way!

1. Havaianas 'Always Summer' Tall Welly: Banish the blues in these high legged ultra waterproof boots with their cute cartoony Tropical design. They are currently on sale at Office for just £25 (was £50). Bargain!

2. Joules Floral Women's Welly: get this gloriously flowery print on your wellies for £36.95 at John Lewis. We especially love the matching poppy-red rubber soles.

3. Living Kitzbühel green daisy wellies. These ultra-shiny boots are superb quality and give a great fit. Grab them now for £42 at Zalando

4. Office Marshmallow 'beach' rubber wellies: Office's ever popular short 'Marshmallow' style is great for festivals. You can grab this idyllic beach print style now for £15 on eBay

5. Gola 'Sunshine Splash' wellies. These sunny yellow wellies have all the advantages you'd associate with Gola's expertise in making top quality rubber soles: all-over flexibility and waterproof wonder! £31 (reduced from £42) at Zalando

6. Office Marshmallow 'fern': the Marshmallow short boot rides again! Great for your everyday needs. This lush meadow-print style is still in store at Office, where it's a mere £15.

Happy splashing!
