Here's a guide to the right types of monsoon-friendly footwear that'll upgrade the hell out of that coated nylon.
Patent leather-An example of the ones to watch is the dressy ceremonial pair by Burberry with their lace-up closure and shiny personality that can go from boardroom to ballroom.
Wellington boots-The short boots are always a good idea, but don't be scared of the tall boots either – they can make for a mean statement when worn over a pair of slim trousers, paired with an oversized plaid shirt and a quilted jacket.
Chelsea boots-Stuff your denims inside your Chelsea boots when taking it easy, and wear your corporate suit with ankle-cropped trousers over them when meaning business.
Military boots-They're the bullet-proof vest to your feet when it's pouring, and come with kick-ass military vibes ready to battle the muddiest of environments.
Desert Boots-Desert boots get the green light even in the wettest of landscapes, particularly when they come in Italian nappa leather and a rubber sole for extra support, signed by the chief of Italian menswear Giorgio Armani.
Sneakers-Step up with colourful sneaks by Salvatore Ferragamo or New Balance in case you're on a tighter budget.
