First designed for men, the brand has branched out into womenswear. Most recently, they have expanded their menswear line to include multiple options of rubber footwear: Chelsea boots, penny loafers, and even cropped rain boots.

Gucci has built a luxury brand known for great Italian leathers. But like many other fashion houses (Vivienne Westwood to name one), they have recently explored rubber footwear options. The brand recently took their classic Horsebit loafter and made it entirely out of rubber. Now this last option might be the most upscale option but at $280 CDN it is a great price for Gucci and it’s a small price to pay to keep your feet dry and fashion forward.
