Style Guide To Winter Boots

Whether we like it or not, the snow and frigid temperatures will soon be here. As you’re prepping your winter wardrobe and taking stock of style options, it doesn’t hurt to consider a good, sturdy pair of winter boots. No, I’m not talking about limiting you to 80s-style “moon boots” like Napoleon Dynamite wears.  🙂  

Nowadays, when the temperatures drop, your cold weather style rises – modern winter boots prove you can have the best of both worlds when it comes to footwear you can crunch through the snow in.

Women’s Winter Boots

So you want cold weather footwear that will keep your feet warm while you’re out and about this winter – without the look of a bulky boot. Here are a few boots that do double duty when it comes to comfort and style.

The North Face Women’s Brianna II Boot

This knee-high full grain leather boot will look great with jeans and a knit sweater, while keeping your feet protected from the elements. It features waterproof construction and 200g of PrimaLoft® Eco insulation – locking out moisture and cold. The Brianna II also comes with faux fur trim and strap and buckle accents for added style. We don’t want to have to give up our style during the winter – but we also worry about our footwear being able to handle slippery, snow-covered terrain. This boot is great – it features the durable TNF™ Winter Grip® rubber outsole with IcePick® temperature-sensitive lugs for ultimate traction. This really is a great boot!
