As the air gets a certain chill and Christmas music fills the halls of your local mall, there is one thing we know for sure.
Santa is definitely on his way (the BeauCoo bunnies have the 411)!
And, more importantly, winter is upon us. The cold is setting in and maybe, just maybe, wherever winter finds you, there will be lots of snow on the ground in no time.
But snowflakes or snowbanks shouldn’t stop you or your feet from looking fabulous this winter. Nor should they stop you from taking a romantic walk in fresh fallen snow or decorating your front yard with snowmen and snow angels.
That’s right. It’s time for So Shoe Me: Winter Boots.
1. Lined Riding Boots
Riding boots looked great in the fall and they look just as great in the winter! But depending on your location, some pairs may not keep your toes warm this winter. If you love the riding boot look (who doesn’t when paired with skinny jeans or leggings?), but aren’t ready to give up warmth, opt for a pair with a warm lining designed for those colder months. Need a little extra comfort? Wear a cute pair of leg warmers to help!
2. Get Ugged
While Uggs aren’t everyone’s favorite choice of footwear, they do the job and they do the job well. While not ideal in blizzards – the traditional Ugg works well in most normal conditions to keep your feet warm for a trip to the mall, a walk in the park or on your commute to work. They’re also great for slipping on and off easily if you’re in a rush! You know, if you’re getting off the slopes and see a cute face headed towards the ski lodge? And if the Ugg price tag is too scary, the beauty of Uggs is that there are many equally awesome brands who make a similar Ugg-style for a fraction of the price!
3. Embrace the Mukluk
A Canadian favourite – we have to admit. For the most warmth for your toes this winter, you simply can’t go wrong with a great pair of Mukluks. Made with cowhide suede and lined with sheepskin, Mukluks are the Cadillac of warmth for your feet! Whether you’re headed out to find the perfect Christmas tree at a tree farm or just running errands, Mukluks will always go along for the ride and provide the ultimate comfort.
4. Traditional Winter Boots
Need something more ideal for snow shovelling or tobogganing this winter? The problem with some of the most fashionable winter boots is that they aren’t so great for keeping out wetness when dealing with deep snow or slushy conditions. If this is the case, opt for weather/performance style boots to keep your feet dry and your toes warm.
These styles are always waterproof and offer rubber bottoms to keep the cold and wet out. To avoid slipping and sliding, traditional winter boots (whether they’re stylish or not) always offer far better traction to get you where you’re going without any broken bones this winter!
BeauCoo Tip: Keep all of your winter boots safe this year and next – remember to always use leather or suede protectant!
