9 Most Stylish Waterproof Combat Boots for Women

9 Most Stylish Waterproof Combat Boots for Women

I love a good black combat boot. But I tend not to wear them often because of rainy, wet weather in Canada!

It's a good thing many of my favorite brands have made stylishly rugged women's waterproof combat boots for the 2023/24 Fall and Winter season.

That's why I'm rounding up the best of the BEST black women's waterproof combat boots out there– right now!

I own a few pairs mentioned below & have experienced wearing many of these weatherproof boots and brands first-hand.

7 are great for mid-weather wear, while the others are temperature-rated and double as winter boots as they are both waterproof & insulated for winter warmth! That means you don't have to worry about how to waterproof your boots!

Combat boots are fabulous because you can style them in so many ways for Fall to Winter and even Spring, with your favorite coats and jeans!

Best Waterproof Combat Boots for Women

The following women's waterproof combat boots are all highly rated boots with waterproofing technology. So you can splash in the puddles without needing to wear clunky (and often style-free) rain boots 😉

But don't forget that even if your boots are pre-treated for the elements, you should always spritz on some waterproof spray for shoes every few months!

1. Taos Crave Leather Combat Boots

Heeled black womens waterproof combat boots.

Taos' Crave Boots are at the top of the list for a reason. These water-friendly boots also offer a high dose of comfort.

They have an inner zipper you can easily get in & out of, along with an adjustable rear buckle to make them fit perfectly. I like how they're a little taller than most boots of their kind.

The removable leather-lined insole with arch support & cushioning makes them the go-to waterproof combat boots for stylish comfort. I can speak to this effect, as I own this exact pair!

Taos‘ Crave combat boots also come in a rainbow of other colors, but the only colorway that is waterproof is the black-on-black. Check out my Taos Crave Boots Review post for more info! Shop Crave boots here

2. Sam Edelman Garret Waterproof Combat Boots

Sam Edelman Garret Boot

Sam Edelman puts out his Garret waterproof combat boots each season and its not surprising – they're gorgeous! My friend has these, I almost bought them too (but alas, too many combat boots in my closet already!).

Comfy and stylish a lug some that's just rugged enough, it's a great take on the classic combat boot for women. The almond toe makes it very feminine. Fits more narrow too, for those with regular to slimmer feet.

You can find the Garret in both black and beige leather, available at Zappos, Nordstrom & Revolve.

3. Sorel Lennox STKD Waterproof Boots

Women's waterproof black combat boots with slanted lug sole and white and black stripe laces on a white background.
Sorel Lennox STKD from Zappos

These Lennox boots from Sorel look a little different this season! Thankfully, they still have that fun slanted tread sole, perfect for walking on ice, slush or snow.

However, the new version is less of a sleek hiker and more of a rugged, waterproof combat boot, giving Timberland vibes. Not complaining though, as it still looks fab!

Special features of this boot include full-grain leather, slim fit, comfy memory EVA footbed. No handy side zipper this time around, though, folks!

It comes in multiple colors including brown, optic white and tan. Really loving the contrast laces on this version.

A slightly different Lennox style waterproof combat boot also comes in a color-blocked tan/brown with a fun red heel.

Grab these and many other Sorel boots from Zappos (in 5 colors), Neiman Marcus & directly from Sorel.

4. Blondo Promise Waterproof Boots

Women's black waterproof combat boots with chunk heel on a white background.
Blondo Promise Combat Boots from Zappos

If you're looking for a water-happy combat boot with slick detailing, the Promise from Blondo is a surefire contender.

This slip-on style remains more competitive in price vs. other women's waterproof combat boots, being just over $150 on sale.

With its durable lug sole and waterproof leather sealed seams, these combat boots will help keep your feet dry and cozy in all weather!

I'm loving the 3D linear motif on the sole and heel, along with the flat laces and all black look, including the lace grommets.

These waterproof combat boots also come in a very luxurious-looking black suede version. Shop Blondo's Noah here from Zappos and also from Nordstrom.

5. La Canadienne Brendan Waterproof Combat Boots

La Canadienne Brendan Chunky Combat

These are absolutely stunning (as the price might be for some!). I couldn't resist adding these chunky black lovelies (that also double as cold weather boots), in this post about black waterproof combat boots!

The leather is buttery and soft, contrasting the rugged, platform lug sole. Great for those wanting something both chunky yet refined.

The Brendan by La' Canadienne might be a steeper price, but this great Canadian winter boot brand boasts luxurious  quality & durability.

This style offers a slimmer, less bulky fit & is perfect for office to outing transitions during the winter! Shop them at Zappos (also in suede), Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus & Nordstrom (also in khaki).

If you're looking for La Canadienne quality that is less chunky & more feminine, try their Sabel combat boot. Or, opt for a sleek taller combat boot with La Canadienne's Cody bootie.

6. Vince Cabria Water-Resistant Combat Boot with Lug Sole

Vince Cambria Combat Boots

A classic look with an extra toothy tread, Vince's Cabria lug-soled leather water-repellent combat boot is a winner.

The price point is close to that of La Canadienne combat boot styles, but at a lesser price-point.

It has a side zip, so that's always handy and it's likely the closest combat boot style to the Doc Martens aesthetic without the clunky feel.

I'm not sure if these are going to be discontinued, but they are on sale at on sale at Zappos, Neiman Marcus & Nordstrom. Also available in both black & suede beige. So get them while you still can!

Best Waterproof and Insulated Women's Combat Boots

If combat boots that are simply waterproof aren't enough for you, no worries. I've found some amazing combat boots that also double as cold weather waterproof winter boots.

This way you don't have to sacrifice warmth for style!

7. Emu Australia Okab Hi Boots

Emu Australia Okab Hi Shearling Boots

Moving onto a lower-height combat-meets-hiker boot (with heel!) is this beaut from EMU Australia.

The Okab Hi is a suede boot made from premium waterproof leathrs, with a tuff of sheepskin padding the ankles.

But don't be fooled, this super weatherized boot is lined with a 100% Australian Merino Wool lining & footbed.  

Take it from someone who has tried a few pairs of EMU Australia winter boots: these are some of the warmest winter boots you'll ever wear!

EMU also has a sister style called Billington which is more of a hiking boot, but has a similar vibe. The rest of their women's waterproof winter boot collection is just fab & worth checking out, here

8. Kamik Rogue 7

Kamik Rogue 7 High Combat Boot

Kodiak's Kamik Rogue 7 is a great high combat boot for winter for those who want extra coverage. It has seam-sealed waterproof genuine leather upper & plush padded collar.

What's great about Kamik is that the leather comes from a tannery rated gold for its water, energy, and waste management practices, reducing the brand's footprint. No pun intended!

The rubber outsole is thick & extra sturdy with GripXT traction, providing extra grip on icy and slippery surfaces. Love the hiking boot eyelet details at the top too.

9. Cougar Stella Waterproof Boots

Stella Shearling Combat Boots

Another shearling lovely (it's the current winter boot trend!) is Cougar's Stella. I Love the huge rugged treads on this boot and it is winterized the way Cougar Shoes does so well!

This boot has polar plush lining (faux shearling), a removable foam footbed and anti-slip thermoplastic rubber sole. It also comes with a side zipper for easy wear and is temperature rated to -24°C/-11°F.

Shop Cougar's Stella boot at Zappos, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and also is available in a camel color (light tan).
