7 Cold Weather Boots to Fashionably Weather a Winter Storm

The Northeast is being blasted with a winter storm today. While it’s cold outside, there are lots of fashionable ways to tackle those foot-high snow drifts.

Keep it cozy with shearling and wool touches, for some natural warmth. Then, add some technical touches such as Gore-tex and Thinsulate linings for maximum protection from the elements.

Bootmakers haven’t sacrificed on style, so there are a lot of snow-bunny options to choose from whether you’re in Aspen or trudging through the streets of New York or Boston.

Blondo does duck-inspired, knee-high boot lined with polar fleece. It laces up quickly, making it easy to get into for a quick run to Starbucks or for snowblowing the driveway.
