sorel-winter-bootsAfter years of practicing the theory that one winter day is like the next, I’m on to the reality that it’s not true.

One day it’s dry but really, really cold. The next day it’s cold with 2-feet of snow. A day later the snow melts and there’s 6 inches of slush off each curb. Then four days later it’s 45 degrees and raining. That’s why we all need more that one pair of winter boots.

The following are do and don’t categories of boot wear.

 

EVERYDAY BOOTS

Aquitalia winter boots

Aquitalia booties for everyday winter wear

 

DO:

Knock yourself out in this category because there are a ton of boots available everywhere you go – from over-the-knee, to knee high, to mid calf and bootie style. If you wear a boot like a shoe, you need several pairs of everyday boots, at least one pair with a heel.

DEEP SNOW & COLD

Merrell

Merrell brown leather boot

 

DO:

Sorel

Merrell

Timberland

Ugg’s – they finally make a decent snow boot

All too ugly you say? Just try them. You’ll want to wear them every day.

DON’T:

Pajar – Cute but not all are fully waterproof and often only come in full sizes.

COLD & SLUSHY

Aquatalia

Aquatalia waterproof suede boot with knit cuff

 

DO:

Aquatalia

Santana

La Canadienne – trust the Canadians to get a cold weather boot right, oh and the Italians aren’t half bad either.

DON’T:

Frye – who can wear these? Love the way they look, hate the way they feel.

RAIN

Hunter Boots

Hunter Boots for winter 2015

 

DO:

Hunters: At your own risk.

La Canadienne or Aquitalia: Trust anything lined that’s waterproof.

DON’T:

Hunters: A lot of people swear by these boots for heavy rain and slushy snow. Me, I swear at them. They aren’t warm and they have no give, making them impossible to pull on and off, plus you can feel the water through the boot.

And that’s my tutorial. Boot-Up.

Gather ‘round ladies and gents!

I spy with my little eye a bit of snow in the forecast for this weekend. Actually more like snow, sleet, rain, winter mix, etc.  Now take a look in your closet. What are you planning on wearing? Those canvas shoes? Yeah right! The snow boots that have followed you since your mom gave them to you in high school and will probably out live you in the impending apocalypse? Ugh.

While the frightful weather keeps you shacked up and snuggled on the couch watching styleboston, we want to have you all bundled up for when you finally have to shovel… or make the trek out of the house to replenish your supply of Bailey’s for warm beverages.

SO, we’re giving away 15 pairs of Teva boots for men and women fit to kick some Nor’easter booty this winter!

On FRIDAY, we’ll post a question on our Facebook and Twitter that only those who watch the show Saturday @ 11:35PM on CH. 4 or Sunday at 10:00AM on CH. 38 will know the answer to! You have until noon on Sunday to submit your answer right HERE

Now let’s take a look at the boots up for grabs this weekend…

Louis Vuitton’s Folies Pump is the sassiest suede peep toe to grace the runway for fall/winter ’12.
