Best Women Shoes for Rainy days

My goal is to bring three pairs of shoes to Greece. My heaviest will be my Keen sandals that I will wear on the plane( I will be wearing these most days) and a pair of Crocs sandals in my bag. For my third pair I want something light weight, breathable, good support and good for a rainy days. Looking for something that would go with a dress, capris, pants etc. Possibly nude color.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

I have been very successful using a waterproofing shoe spray. I have one that is appropriate for both leather and textile shoes, and it has really worked!
Safe travels!

Pat what a good idea. Do you have the name of what you use? I assume the shoe would still be breathable.

Actually, I used up [threw out] the spray before my recent trip to Italy/Slovenia, but I probably bought it either at a drug store or online. It wasn't hard to find, and worked both on running/fabric shoes and leather shoes. My feet stayed dry during the raining Walking Tour in Ljubljana this year, and [in years past] standing in line in the pouring rain at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh. I had no complaints, so shoes must have stayed breathable. Enjoy your trip!

Are you familiar with the brand On Cloud? Super cute, low profile and lightweight walking/running shoes, and they make waterproof options. Widely available on-line, try Zappos or Nordstrom.

Target carries Kiwi brand Camp Dry Heavy Duty Water Repellent - label reads "tough silicone protection, for outdoor gear & footwear." Comes in 10 oz. spray can, for maybe $7. We've used on shoes, jackets, fabric totes. Maybe not absolute waterproofing, but every bit helps. Haven't tried (Lo's?) standing under the shower test!

We use ScotchGuard spray on our shoes and jeans when we travel to make sure there is no problem with rain. We usually spray them twice, letting them dry between and have no problems. You can get it at Home Depot or most grocery stores.

I look for shoes with Gore-Tex lining. My feet stay dry.

I do wonder why you are bringing two pairs of sandals though?

I think you ask too much. Nude and waterproof usually don’t go together.
