I’m including phone numbers because many stores do not stock rainboots year-round. Call ahead to be sure.
1) Kid Dynamo – Located on Upper Shattuck near Saul’s, Kid Dynamo carries the coolest kids clothes on the market, including rain gear. If a modern aesthetic is important to you, stop by this shop.
2) Hanna’s – This kids resale shop is a great place to look for rain boots, rain jackets and umbrellas. Bring your kids outgrown gear, and swap for credit towards your new purchase. Call ahead to see if she has any rain boots in the size you need.
3) Rockridge Kids – Carrying the brand Pluie Pluie in styles for boys and girls, sizes 5-13, this neighborhood fixture of Rockridge has jackets and umbrellas, too.
4) Happy Feet – Find rainboots, crocs, and anything else that children wear on their feet.
5) Silver Moon – Well-loved neighborhood kid store in the Lake Merritt area
