We are in the thick of it. Winter is that. And to top it off, some province-wide lockdowns were lifted just in time for record snowfall to keep people from leaving their homes.
Along with the treacherous ice and salt that blanket city sidewalks and suburban crescents, plows have started to create piles of wet, muddy mud that everyone can’t wait to wade through (just kidding).
Does anyone really care if your shoes get dirty? No. It’s been a pretty classic Canadian winter (despite COVID restrictions) and if you’ve ever experienced one before, you know you’re meant to face the terrain.
But you know who probably cares that their shoes are dirty? You. That’s why a sturdy pair of weather-resistant winter boots are a wardrobe necessity this time of year, but not the kind you might be thinking about.
Imagine your first pair of winter boots: they were probably thick rubber, nylon coated waders with a drawstring at the front to prevent snow from falling on the rim of their fleece lined interior.
Now imagine your next pair: stylish ankle boots adorned with leather and fur that you can wear with almost anything in your wardrobe. They are wintered, but in disguise.
Sounds better than putting on your noisiest boots and sliding them through the snow like ankle weights to work?
… We thought so too. Fortunately, seasonal sales are underway and you can score trendy styles at rock bottom prices.
You no longer have to be embarrassed by what’s under the ankles. Seriously, winter boots can be cute – take a look at some of our favorite pairs below.
