Need suggestions for waterproof shoes with good support

We are going to Ireland in September. I have a pair of waterproof Merrells for outdoor walking/hiking but am looking for recommendations of something for walking in cities and towns that are also waterproof. I have flat feet and wear orthotics; normally I wear Saucony running shoes which are great but not waterproof. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I like Anhu waterproof hiking shoes - wore them in Ireland, in fact.

I can recommend two brand: North face hedgehog Gortex shoes. I wore them in Ireland and I was the only one on the tour with dry feet. Love them. They did not let me down. Another brand that you may want to consider is Clarks they carry a waterproof wave athletic shoe. It comes in navy, black, tan, and grey. A friend of mine just brought these for a trip to Scotland at a local Clarks outlet. She has been wearing them and so far has found them to be quite comfortable. She also has flat feet and need orthotics.

Another Ahnu fan here.

I wear these everywhere due to the comfort and support. The water resistance is a bonus. I have them in blue and in gray.

These Abeos are what I change into at night if I go out. They are very comfortable, but not for long walks. I have them in black and in silver. Abeo has many comfortable styles.

We went to Ireland for two weeks in September of 2014. I wore my waterproof Salomon low cut hikers. It only rained one day! It was warmer than we expected and I wished I had taken a pair of capris. I brought a second pair of simple black Mary Janes for evenings and mornings. Now I take a pair of black Sketchers as they are so lightweight!

Check the ECCO brand. Most are waterproof depending on style. It has been our go to shoe for over a decade.
