While we might still be in the middle of summer, don’t be fooled. The cold weather will be upon us sooner than we think. So, this year, don’t be caught in hand-to-hand battle with a rival consumer at the mall over the last pair of boots with a fellow shopper. Start your boot shopping early by checking out a wide range of online deals.
While styles currently available at clearance are more than likely from last season, protective footwear styles don’t change dramatically. What really matters is what’s inside the boots, from temperature regulating materials to waterproofing.
Keep in mind that sale boots may be limited when it comes to size and color choices. But, with some diligence and patience, deals can be found. Don’t forget there are also plenty of full-price boots available online since many popular performance looks are carried over from season to season, so there’s no excuse to be caught without a brand new pair waiting at your front door for the first sign of snow.
Muckbootcompany.com, known for its collection of protective footwear, has both full price and sale looks available. Available at a discount is the women’s Arctic Weekend, an all-purpose winter boot selling at $70 compared to its regular price of $140.
Bargain hunters can also check out 6pm.com, which has the Ugg Sunburst Tall on sale for $180 from $275 and Irish Setter Ladyhawk at $95 compared to its suggested retail price of $130.
Of course, guys will need a pair that can stand up to a morning of shoveling the driveway. , Sierratradingpost.com has some serious looks to offer, such as Sorel’s Alpha Track Buckle boot reduced from $200 to $140.
When it comes to kids, it’s better to wait until the first sign of cold weather since kids’ feet grow so quickly.
