The thought of rain boots always calls to mind images of Paddington Bear and Kate Moss trudging through Glastonbury in a pair of Hunters. While one of those visuals is undoubtedly more stylish that the other (IDC what you say, Paddington is the icon here), there's no denying that rubber wellies can envelop a whole outfit.

If you prefer a weather-proof shoe that doesn't look like one, there's a high-end footwear brand dedicated to making just that. Aquatalia makes truly gorgeous leather and suede boots that have won over some of the most stylish people on the planet: Angelina Jolie, Amber Heard, Jessica Alba, and Kerry Washington among them. Kate Middleton in particular, who's been wearing the brand's boots since her pre-royal days in 2006, seems to appreciate Aquatalia's unique benefits.

The fact that Aquatalia's shoes are completely water- and rain-resistant is just a major added bonus on top of the enormous value they already offer based on style and comfort alone. Reviewers who've left the various styles five-star ratings have called them "soft and classy," and said they'll be "wearing this comfortable boot for many years."

"Very elegant, the leather is soft and the boot adjusts to the shape of your leg," wrote one buyer. "They are well-made and are comfortable."

Another shopper summed up the general sentiment by stating simply: "Aquatalia never fails."

Knee-highs, like those loved by Middleton and Jolie, alongside ankle boots by Jessica Alba, are all marked down in a fortuitous sale at Saks Off 5th. There are dozens of timeless styles marked down, but be forewarned: sizes are selling out quickly. If you want to secure a pair of these celeb-loved rain boots for less, you have to act fast.
