The LaCrosse Hampton is a lightweight and comfortable low-cut rain boot that's perfect for walking the dog, heading to local hangouts, and doing yard work (as long as the weather isn't too extreme). This pair of boots is not for wading through deep water, trekking through mud, or for use in heavy storms. Yet, it is a uniquely pleasant and comfortable rain boot appropriate for all-day use during a wide variety of activities. In addition to being remarkably comfortable, this boot is super easy to take on and off, and we even think it's pretty stylish, to "boot." It's not heavily insulated, which makes it more versatile for use in milder temperatures. For these reasons and more, the Hampton won our Top Pick for Mild Weather.
We found this rain boot to be so comfortable and stylish that we wanted to wear it all the time when trudging through any deep water or mud wasn't necessary. It's perfect for rainy days on the town, or as LaCrosse suggests, lounging around a campfire. In fact, our testers began to think of them more as a bootie or slipper than a rain boot. The smooth tread, however, limits where it can be used just as much as the short height of the shaft does. However, if you need a boot that can get you through any outdoor conditions, check out the Editors' Choice Kamik Icebreaker, or even the Bogs Classic High - Men's.
