Amanda requested a few picks for winter boots, so here we go:
Baffin Judy – was $169.99, now $102.99 – $134.99
I’m not familiar with this brand myself, but it’s a Canadian brand and most of the Canadian snowboot brands that get picked up by the big online shoe retailers DO NOT PLAY when it comes to snowboot construction. This pair gets high ratings for comfort and warmth, though do check reviews for info on sizing. Available in brown, black, and this taupe in US sizes 6 – 11, sold out in 10. Size availability varies by color.
Timberland Earthkeepers Savin Hill Tall Boot – was $220, now $197.99
When I think “winter boots,” I generally think of snow boots … but that’s not the case for everyone. Winter is different everywhere, and many folks are seeking weatherproof boots that are still stylish enough for office or everyday wear. And for those folks I have one word: Timberland. Sadly, although this brand creates some D width shoes, they don’t do wide calf tall boots. But they are the only company I’ve found that makes waterproof and weatherproof boots that are utterly gorgeous to look at and totally comfy to wear. I just got these in the mail (my beloved cognac boots do NOT fare well in wet, winter weather) and I’m in love. The pair above is also from the Earthkeepers line, and will work beautifully in business casual environments. Available in brown and black in US sizes 5.5 – 11 including a few wide footbed sizes. Size availability varies by color.
Kamik Soho – was $150, now $98.98
I know that finding wide-calf winter boots can be tough, and what I generally recommend is to find slightly lower shaft and/or lace-up styles. These Kamiks are 15″ wide, and can lace a bit wider as needed. These pups have a temperature rating of -25° F/ -32° C and since we had a 20-below windchill in Minneapolis today, I’m rather tempted by them myself! Available in US sizes 6 – 11 in black and dark brown. Size availability varies by color.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for winter boots:
- Timberland – I’m gonna repeat myself down here, I know, but want to make sure you folks explore these brands in addition to the styles I’ve selected for the evening. Timberland is the only company on my radar that consistently creates stylish, nearly work-appropriate boots that are also water- and weatherproof. Also check Zappos and 6pm for deals.
- Sorel – Ruggedly stylish and extremely durable. Some styles aren’t ideal for walks longer than half an hour or so as they scrunch down in the shaft and can cause blisters. These are great commuter boots, though.
- Merrell – Wide calf winter boots are tough to find, but Merrell makes several stylish and weatherproof lace-up styles that will give some flexibility. This mid-calf pair is fabulous.
