Winter is here in full force â€” but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your sense of style! SHOP these durable yet fashionable snow boots if you want to brave the blizzard in style.
Here in Canada, we are feeling the wrath of Hercules â€” the first major snow storm of 2014! However, even if you aren’t enduring frigid temperatures and snow doesn’t mean you canâ€™t benefit from stocking up on a stylish pair of snow boots. Whether you plan to hit the slopes this winter or just need to prepare for the unpredictable weather, you canâ€™t go wrong with these practical and stylish options.
Robin Keeler, fashion director at Yorkdale Mall in Toronto,Â provides shopping tips to help simplify your search for the perfect pair of winter boots.
1. Shop for boots after you have been on your feet for a while (when they swell to their largest). The true test is how boots feel on tired feet.
2. Don’t buy boots in the hope they will eventually “stretch out” — they rarely do. Remember: No one looks good when his or her feet hurt.
3. Boots come in so many styles that you probably will need more than one pair, depending on your budget. Consider the following styles for the following uses.
â€˘ Active (flat, fur lined and cozy)
â€˘ Everyday (low heel, neutral colour, quality, versatile style)
â€˘ Fashion (trendy, high heels, hardware details)
When you’re stepping out into the snow, slush and ice, do it in a stylish pair of boots that prove that fashion and function can coexist during a cold Canadian winter.
Staying warm and comfortable during winter means making smart choices when it comes to your wardrobe. Your winter boots, in particular, need to stand up to snow and ice to keep your toes toasty.Â
But how do you find a pair that doesn’t force you to forfeitÂ fashionÂ in order to gain function?Â
Robin Keeler, fashion director at Yorkdale Mall in Toronto, describes which winter boots are best and offers helpful tips to help you shop for the right pair.
