L.L. Bean's iconic heritage duck boots are by far the best shoes to wear in the rain or snow — even for fashion lovers. But last year they sold out by December (with back orders arriving very belatedly in April). And already this year we're facing similar shortages. If you're already hoarding winter essentials like some of us, you might want to consider a Bean alternative. Luckily, the good people at Polyvore gave us statistics on the best-selling waterproof boot alternatives, so you can invest in keeping your feet dry before it's too late.


One of Sorel's ($189) slimmer boots, this pair has lightweight faux-fur lining but still maintains a sleek appeal.


If you're not a fan of knee-high boots, Sperry makes great durable short boots for only $120.


If we have a winter anything like last year's polar vortex, these Pajar boots ($189) will save lives.


Teva doesn't just make sandals — they also have some of the best waterproof boots around. These are only $68.


Want winter gear with a little color? These Sorel boots, on sale for $89, may be just what you're looking for.


Timberland makes super-cozy boots that have a lug sole tough enough to last you a couple winters, so they're worth the $169.


Kamik's Porto boots ($134) are made from a dry defense fabric that's temperature rated to -25 degrees Fahrenheit — so basically, you'll never be cold.
