Sure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. (It’s even harder if you’re seeking maternity workwear essentials!) In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

These Sofft boots are waterproof and come in a zillion different colors and fabrics. I like that the laces make them adjustable, but there’s also an inside zip — and this boot has been around for years.
We’re picturing the flat option above, but there are some available with a slightly higher heel.
Another nice option from Sofft if you’re not a fan of the laces: the Samantha boot.
These boots aren’t leather — they’re clearly rain boots! — but they look sleek enough to work on your commute and even possibly to a post-work networking event. Plus, Hunter are the OG boots.
The Aquadiva brand is new to me, but Nordstrom has a TON of highly rated boots that are weatherproof boots.
The pictured one is $295, and they note that it has a full-length side and back zippers and a stretchy shaft.
La Canadienne boots are always splurgeworthy because they’re experts in waterproofing — and these tall, sophisticated flat boots have 465 glowing reviews at Zappos.
I like that they come in three width options, are waterproof, and are available in black leather, black suede, and espresso suede. Nice! They’re $525.
