I have some by Chooka. quality seems okay, but I really haven't worn them very much. just in moderate rain. you can also look into Hunter. J. Crew has some too. if you don't want to spend much, I'm sure you can find cheap ones at Marshall's or TJ Maxx

If you want a cheaper route check Target online. They always get tons of online only styles in everything from neutrals to really fun prints. I have 2 of their pairs and the quality seems pretty good, especially for the price. I have even walked up a creek in them with no leaks lol.

Hunter. I went through several pairs before finding the perfect ones. They're the most comfortable and waterproof. I'd definitely recommend them. They run 1 size large btw.

^ are you talking about the target Merona brand ones? there were a couple different brands but that one appears to have the most colors and best reviews.

I have these: Kamik 'Olivia' Rain Boot | Nordstrom and I love them. I usually wear a 7.5 and I have these in an 8. They're cut slimmer in the calves and ankles than other rain boots that I've tried on, but there's still more than enough room for me to tuck my jeans in.

the hunter ones are a bit too expensive for me

will definitely keep them in mind though, the reviews are really good.

I'm not sure...I just looked at Target's website and I am confused. I got one pair 2 years ago and the other last year and there were not nearly as many brands or styles and they were all one price. I just checked my boots and there is no style or brand or anything on them (just the size). Mine were definitely a Target only brand and were both $24.99. They also run 1/2 to a full size large (I wear a 6.5-7 and got them in a 6 and they are perfect with socks). Mine look just like the Merona ones they have now, but then again so do a bunch of the other ones that don't say "Merona" in the description.

I have 2 pairs Sperry's and Totes. Both are good quality but I wear the Sperry's more. Price varies on the Sperry's depending on the color/pattern but the quality is good, I even wore them in light snow a few times The totes are more fitted in the calf area IMO which makes it difficult to tuck your pants if you want to. I think I got the Totes on sale at either Penney's or Kohl's.

ETA: Just looked, got the Totes at Kohl's.

Target boots are cute, but very low quality, IMO. I have heard from friends that the sole split after a few months,

I got a pair of Hunter, and these are supposed to last forever. Also, they are taller than most rain boots, which is a plus for me.

Missoni for Target has a few on the site right now. I think they're $35.

^ They're completely sold out. I'm surprised that any Missoni for Target products are even still in stock.

All sizes were available last night online. In stores, most everything is gone..at least at the stores nearby me. A lot is sold out online as well.

Bummer! The site was down for me last night. I actually didn't even know about it until I saw something on Yahoo about how crazy it was getting.
I got a makeup case in store but the selection had been almost entirely swamped there too.

I love these boots so much I would wear them every day if I didn't love heels. Got a pair of them in brown a year ago and they stood up to camping and hiking so well I had to get another pair! Super comfortable and look great with everything.

Ugh, I missed the Hunters on Gilt! How much were they? Trying to decide if I should just pay retail or wait and see if they pop up again......
