Boots, Boots, and more Boots


So I decided to write this quick entry for the simple fact that there is literally a blizzard in Wisconsin. As a result, fashionable, but functional boots are an essential. Here are my picks for the best boots for women and men.


UGG's seem to be a staple for many women because they are comfortable, warm, and seen on many celebrity favorites. Try the classic long or short boot in black or chestnut. However, if you're really going to trek through the snow, opt for the Dauphine style for something that is stylish, but water-proof.

One does not have to travel far to find exquisite, affordable boots. Just stop by the local Target to view the extensive boot collection. I personally recommend the Adi Designs Faux Fur Microsuede Boots because they are warm, and lined with my FAVORITE detail, fur:) Try them in grey so they go with absolutely everything.

If you're willing to splurge, opt for Burberry's Quilted Boot, or a Chanel Ski Boot. You will be sure to turn some heads, even among a blizzard.


My absolute favorite men's boot (and the one that gets me through the dreaded snow) is Born's Hemlock Boot in black. This waterproof, yet edgy boot keeps my feet dry, and looks great with my black skinny jeans. Genius.

Yes, guys, UGG does make men's boots, and they are just as cozy and practical as the women's boots. While you could try the classic boot like the ladies, I am obsessed with the Hartsville collection. These boots are waterproof, and come with two different insoles so you can choose if you are in the mood for leather, or soft, sheepskin. This style also comes in extended sizes for those larger feet.

The North Face.
If you're looking for a great boot to match that North Face jacket, try the McMurdo boot in black or brown. These boots are extremely durable, and perfect for a trek through the snow.

  1. Not Uggs, Bobby! Granted, "pretty" and "functional" don't go together in boots, but there are much nicer looking choices than Uggs. Uggs and Crocs ... hate them both!
