Deciding on winter boots is one of the most important things to do as winter approaches. Boots should keep you warm and keep you safe from slipping. They can be used for outdoor winter activities or to wear on a daily basis to work or on the weekends. Most men and women have at least a couple pairs of boots to get them through the winter months. Most women have more than that. This year there are many styles to choose from.
Heavy duty winter boots
If you live in an area where the climate is cold, snowy, rainy and long, you need at least one pair of boots that will keep your feet warm, dry and comfortable. Snow boots and PAC boots are waterproof and fit over the cuff of your pants. They have one or two liners that add insulation. Some are designed specifically for activities such as ice fishing or snow showing. Some are great for shoveling the driveway or sledding with the kids.
Hiking boots can be all season boots or made specifically to keep you warm and safe during the winter months. If you’re an avid winter hiker, consider investing in a good winter hiking boot. It should be waterproof and provide traction.
If you live in an area that is cold and rainy most of the winter, you should definitely invest in a good rain boot from The NorthFace. Rain boots are similar to winter boots but don’t come with a liner. They are high to cover much of your leg and waterproof to keep you dry in the rainiest weather.
Boots to add more style
There are many stylish boots for men and women to wear all winter long. Women tend to need at least a couple boots to match with different outfits for work or play. The fit of a boot is one of the most important aspects to consider when choosing a stylish boot for winter weather. Careful measurements of the calf, foot and arch will help you find the best fitting winter boots. Boots should fit the calf snugly yet comfortably. Boots should fit the arch and the foot size well for comfort.
Boots come in different heights which may be appropriate for specific occasions. Ankle boots are cute and can be worn with pants or dresses. They look good for work or a night on the town. Mid-calf boots are classic. They never go out of style and are a staple in most women’s wardrobe. Knee-high and over the knee boots come and go in popularity and this year, both are in style. Depending on the style of boot, the height can work with different outfits and be worn daily.
Women boots with heels
For women, heels are one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a winter boot. Many women feel more comfortable in a flat boot, and with the styles this year, there are many ways a flat boot can look exciting and chic. Wedges and stacked heels give height without the danger of teetering. Kitten heeled boots provide a bit of a sexy heel without the height. Some women are comfortable in stiletto heels, and there are plenty of boots with high heels to satisfy.
When choosing a winter boot or boots this year, consider when and where you will wear them, warmth, comfort and fit. A practical boot can be worn daily or when enjoying outdoor winter activities. A stylish boot can be worn for work or fun. With all of the choices in boots this winter, you are sure to find the boots that you need and want.
