This is the time of year that I change from searching for fancy frocks and sparkling party accessories to down parkas and sensible (read: warm, waterproof, and durable) footwear. Below you will find the results of my snow boot search and, per usual, I have tried several of my picks (call this market research). Enjoy!
Furry: Fur is the best part of cold weather dressing! I love the furry adornment of hoods, boots, and accessories this time of year (have you seen furry purses??). And, with this cold weather boot, fashion meets function providing not only a chic statement, but also insulation to the durable, rubber sole.
Classic: Sorel’s traditional designs have long been synonymous with cold-weather boots. In particular, I love the black and rich brown combo, and the houndstooth texture detailing that make these boots extremely versatile – they’re easy to wear both over a pair of skinny jeans around town or under your snowboarding pants after a day on the slopes.
Sporty: The classic, preppy design of these Sperry waterproof boots is a tried and true winter favorite. I especially love the colorful, quilted uppers combined with the quintessential leather laces. Also, the colorful boots pictured above are a Sperry for J.Crew collaboration.
Minimalist: Not bulky or extravagantly furry, these simple boots could almost pass for a casual, black bootie. And comfort is king, as you would expect from these UGG boots lined in their signature wool.
Chic: With a 3″ wedge heel, these boots are for the fashionista snow bunny (and those comfortable navigating ice and snow conditions in a heel!). These definitely make a statement aprés ski yet are cool enough to wear when navigating an urban winter wonderland!

Happy New Year! As always, thanks for reading. Hope you’re staying dry and toasty out there! ~Jenn
