Before you make any assumptions about a colorful pair of toe gloves, consider the reason that this city is nicknamed “Hotlanta”. Sure, they aren’t your typical rain shoes, but these Vibrams were expertly-designed with gripping soles and breathable mesh. We love recommending them to our customers because these are a water resistant shoe that lacks the bulk of a rain boot. After all, when it's hot and sticky out, the last thing you want to wear is a pair of heavy pair of winter rain boots. In addition, for all of our river rats, these are the best shoes on the market for watersports such as paddle boarding, kayaking, and boating. So whether you’re kayaking the Chattahoochee, cruising along Lake Allatoona, or simply just running errands in the rain, rest assured that Vibram are a summer staple for the Atlanta heat.
