If there’s one item that is so important for me to have in my wardrobe, it’s a quality pair of rain boots. So, today I’m very excited to share with you all a classic and minimal pair of ethical rain boots from the wonderful brand Alice + Whittles! As well as a 10% discount code for any of their regular priced boots.
I’ve been looking for a short pair of well made rain boots for awhile now. I own a pair of tall Hunter rain boots but they’re not as functional for walking to work or bringing with me in case it rains. I’ve been searching for a pair that are lightweight, short, comfortable, and versatile. So, I was really interested when Alice and Whittles reached out to me about their ethically and responsibly made product.

Alice + Whittles
I’m always looking for new brands whose products are ethically and responsibly made. I love that Alice + Whittles is very open about how their boots are made and who makes them. They “harvest the rubber for their rain boots from natural rubber from local rainforests in an environmentally responsible, socially beneficial, and economically viable way”.
Here are the ways in which they do so according to their website (which you can read more about here):
- Take responsibility for the complete supply chain
- Provide a decent wage for all workers
- Contribute to communities
- Select materials that have a minimal impact on the environment
- Invest in having long-term relationships with each of their suppliers
- Use innovation to bring products to the market ethically and efficiently
Fit & Style Details
These boots are so comfortable. I had read other reviews in the ethical fashion space raving about how comfortable these boots are and they were not lying. The boots are lightweight, flexible, and well fitted (not too loose).
The website says to order a size up. Which, I did and am very glad I did so. I usually wear a size 7 and ordered an 8. They fit perfectly.
The shorter ethical rain boots have different colors to choose from. There’s an all black pair and a black with white pair as well. I decided to add the green and black to my wardrobe instead of the all black because I love the classic appearance the green rain boots have.
These rain boots are really quite beautiful and pair nicely with a dress or jeans. I styled them here with my favorite mid length dress and pullover sweater. I’ll also be wearing them with:
- Wide leg pants
- Straight leg trousers
- Tights and skirts
- Tights and dresses
I think one of my favorite things about these, besides being ethically made, is that they’re perfect for every season. Spring and summer are always trickiest for rain boots as I don’t want to be wearing long rubber boots when it’s warm and raining.
I hope you all check out Alice + Whittles! Make sure to use SIMPLE10 for 10% off your purchase.
