I have a 20% coupon for Payless shoe stores. I have been thinking about buying a pair of rain shoes。I didn't find any for men on Payless website, but there is one for women which looks like unisex, but I am not sure about this. Does someone have some idea? Thanks!

The website of the women's rain boots:

Additional question:

What do men in U.S. (if needed, in Maryland) wear in rainy days?
Do they wear differently in warm/hot rainy days, and in cold rainy days?

What do they wear in snowy days?

Thanks!

Thanks!
What are the shoes in the picture called?
Where are they sold?
What do men wear in warm rainy days, for example, for walking to office?

I haven't seen those for decades!

Most guys here wear regular shoes in the rain, unless they are out working in it.
On snowy days, they wear snow boots or waterproof ankle-high shoes.

What "regular shoes" are worn in the rain? My canvas shoes and sneakers are soaked in rain so that my feet are soaked in water as well, when I just walked to classrooms.

The picture was of duck shoes, named cause you could be like a duck and walk through water. In warm weather some men wear flip flops, some wear boat shoes (google it) and some wear dress shoes that they treat with neat.s foot oil to make them water resistant.
