I am currently walking around in flip-flops, short-shorts, and a tee. The thought of wearing winter boots—let alone buying a new pair—is simply unfathomable. But, as is often the case, the cold creeps in seemingly out of nowhere. I’ll be decked out in a hoodie, thermals, and my trusty Ugg slippers before I know it. And, if memory serves me well, snowfall will be coming shortly after, usually seemingly out of nowhere, too. I need to start wrapping my brain around stepping out my door in boots that’ll protect me from cold, slush, and all the other hurdles that come with braving the Great Outdoors (or just the sidewalk). Indeed, the environment is pretty unpredictable, and I have definitely been caught without adequate footwear to brave the elements.

Don’t make the same mistake this coming winter. If you are scoffing at the mere thought of buying a pair of winter boots right now, rest assured that, when you least expect it, temperatures will drop 20 degrees and the streets will be blanketed in several inches of snow. It’ll do you no good to walk out in anything that wasn’t made for such harsh conditions. You’ll need sturdy, waterproof uppers, extra insulation (fur or faux-fur lining is the warmest), and rubber lug outsoles for all the black ice. Styles billed as mountain wear are a great bet, but there are also designer options that are up to snuff.

Will it ever actually snow again? Who knows? I’m not Al Roker. But I feel a whole lot better as soon as I have all the gear necessary to tackle any imminent inclement weather, imaginary or otherwise. And that means investing in a pair of the winter boots that’ll see me through the season. Practical? Sure. Reassuring? Absolutely. Get yours now and enjoy all the benefits that come with being the proud owner of some of the best of the best, because winter is alway unpredictable.
