Growing up in Northern Illinois meant you had to have winter boots for wintertime. In fact, as a child, I remember packing my sneakers in my backpack so I could wear my boots to school, trekking through the snow, and then I’d change into my sneakers when I got there.
You needed winter boots to get around!
And in the spirit of full disclosure, I called my shoes tennies, not sneakers, as an adolescent! Anyone else?!
Even though I live in a climate that doesn’t get piles of snow, it seems to be more regular than not that we get at least one “decent” snow a year. More than snow we get ice, so having winter boots with good grip is kind of a necessity here as well.
I’ve loved my Sperry boots that I got a few years ago. They are very comfortable, warm, and are easy to walk in!
As far as socks go, I love Smartwool for really cold days. They aren’t terribly thick but they keep your toes nice and warm.
The GLOBALWIN boots are a great price and come pretty highly reviewed. These would be a great option for those of you that live in quite snowy climates.
I’m not currently in the market for a new pair, as I still have and love my Sperry’s from last year, but if I was I have to say the poppy red shoelace from this boot is catching my eye!
