[tps_header]Cold weather arrives and we’re faced with the challenge of finding footwear that braves the elements and looks stylishly fantastic at the same time. Finding one of those two things is usually not a problem; finding both? Yeah, that. And who wants to think about our toes being wet or cold while we’re hanging with friends, running errands or heading to the office?
The good news is that there are a myriad of options today, thanks to modern technology paving the way for boots that are fashion-forward and functional. Read on and find what boots will work best for you, given your taste and activities!
Here, the girls at Ohio Outside take a look at 10 boots that will keep your feet warm, dry and looking good this winter.
Sorel Women’s Slimpack Riding Tall Boot
This timeless waterproof, insulated PAC boot channels the classic style of an equestrian riding boot while keeping feet dry and warm in inclement weather. Ideal for everyday wear, the full-grain leather upper and iconic rubber shell create a protective foot environment while the molded EVA footbed and integrated arch support provide lasting comfort. The light distressed look and wrinkles add to the beauty in the natural leather. Colors include Nutmeg, Nori, and Shale, each rich and classic to match your good taste.
Stylish and functional! I love the color of the leather, nori, which boasts gorgeous medium browns and soft greens resembling seaweed. The boots have a perfectly worn look that is relaxed, but can be dressed up with leggings. As far as functionality, Sorrel doesn’t disappoint. The pull loops help slide the boot on with ease. As I wore them in wet and snowy conditions they kept my feet dry and the grooves on the outer sole assisted in balance and traction as I encountered muddy or slick footing. The boots weren’t as easy to slip off as they were on. Plan on sitting down and using both hands to get these beauts off.
