The weather outside is frightful 🙁 🙁 🙁

…Oh, and we live in a world where there’s a 100,000 person wait list for LL Bean’s classic duck boot. So having accepted those classics as a foregone possibility, we’re offering up some high-fashion options that will still keep your feet warm and dry.

Throwback to the early aughts in these otherworldly Pucci moon boots.

Believable as an outdoorsy shoe but secretly far more chic than utilitarian, thanks to the ridiculously plush shearling lining. The Aerin Keel boot is the dream of everyone who prefers their aesthetic be described as such: “I went to college in Maine and I totally hiked, I just did it it expensively.” This, by the way, is not necessarily a bad thing. Gorsuch also carries these in a more chocolate hue.

Another pick from Ms. Aerin Lauder, for the liberal arts student in all of us. The Alina boot has a lambskin shearling lining that would definitely make it easier to leave the house and step out into a snowy abyss.


For the days when the snow has turned to slush, you can pretend you’re too serious and fashionable to be kicking through it joyously (while doing just that) knowing these Hunter x Rag & Bone rain boots won’t let anything in. David Neville and Marcus Wainwright have added chic tweaks in the form of a zipper and an angled top.

Stuart Weitzman amps up the style factor of a practical lug sole with goatskin and PETA friendly faux-fur lining.

These Burberry wellies have leather trim. I would wear these even if it isn’t raining or snowing.

These Jimmy Choos look equally good rolled down/shearling exposed or high up and laced.

La Canadienne is a go-to for reliable weatherproof shoes. These shearling boots are almost as good as sweatpants, and being over-the-knee keeps them on trend.

Sorel’s Tivoli Boot comes in a chic navy. P.S. We are all about black and navy. No questions asked.

If all else fails, or your boots are fine but for those icky salt stains, we recommend Boot Rescue wipes.
