I have learned the hard way that if you wait until the first big snowstorm to pick up a pair of suitable boots, they will be gone, so look alive: I have a pair of these Sorel boots, and they’re great for when it’s really coming down.
These Sperry boots look a bit like the Vince boots I showed you yesterday, except they’re more appropriate for wet weather, and a whole lot cheaper.
These have a nice, lightweight, sneaker-ish sole.
For those who require a little height in all conditions, these J. Crew boots are pretty adorable.
These look appealingly like Mukluks to me, only with treads on the soles so you can clomp through the snow in them.
These look both cozy and utilitarian, and I dig the spiff black and white shoelaces.
This Woolrich pair as minimal in design as foul weather boots get, and I’ll bet they’re seriously durable.
This is a splurgier choice than the others, but they’re almost chic, and I really like the platform sole.
These are from La Canadienne and are also a bit of an investment, but they’re cool in a tough girl kind of way.
A snow boot disguised as a motorcycle boot: genius.
These classic L.L. Bean boots look so great once they’re a little worn in, and they last forever.
And finally: the dogs seriously require boots when it snows, because all the salt on the sidewalks gets into their wee paws and really hurts. So I’m considering trading in the cheapies they usually wear (and that inevitably slip off) with these Ruff Wear booties that are apparently state-of-the-art.
