Alright, it is time for an honest discussion. Let’s talk about winter.
I’m not talking about a couple centimetres of snow on the ground for a week and then it is gone, and I’m not talking about “Omg it is so cold I’ll have to wear a scarf with my leather jacket.” No. That is not winter at all. I’m here to discuss the -38C weather I survived through the night before last and the 3 day blizzard that went on as I carried about my own business.
I’m going to admit that I’m guilty of not always dressing weather appropriate footwear-wise in the winter. I have a pair of Uggs that are warm enough to watch a hockey game in or last while I pick up groceries but are certainly not waterproof and I have a super cute pair of mid calf height moccasins that I’ve been wearing quite a bit but have a cruddy tread so I find myself sliding everywhere I go. Often I’ll wear a pair of riding boots or fall boots regardless of the weather.
However, when the weather gets ultra crappy and cold this is what I turn to:
These are real winter boots. My tall Adriondack boots by Ugg Australia I can say are pretty legit. The shearling lining keeps my toes warm and dry and they come up high enough and fit tight enough around my legs that I don’t get snow in my boots when I’m mid snowball fight or trudging through a white out. I’m going to admit that I wish they were a tiny but cuter but they work with the right clothes and I like them more and more with each use. I wear them with the tops both pulled up and down in my attempt to vary its look. Paired with my Canada Goose coat, I’m pretty bundley warm.
