Several years ago friends in NW Oregon (where it rains more often than not) introduced me to Merrell Jungle Mocs. I have not worn any other day-to-day shoe since. These shoes are grippy enough to cope with the wet conditions, high enough to stay out of many minor puddles thus keeping feet dry, and convenient enough whether at home to slip off easily before entering living areas and tracking undesirable items into the house. Jungle Mocs have the added bonus of being great shoes to wear through airport security while traveling due to their easy-off/easy-on design. I have a wide foot and high arches, so I usually have a difficult time finding comfortable shoes, but this model works very well for me. The uppers are pliable and mold to your foot shape. I keep a brown pair and a basic black pair around to go with almost any "outfit", although if you like a little more flash I know there are Blue Suede Shoes as an option, too.
