Winter Boots Round Up

The brutal winter in Chicago has begun. The temps have been freezing (it’s rare we see these low temps so early in December) and the snowfall totals are rapidly climbing. I never considered rain and winter boots a priority or necessary purchase until I began working in the city 5 years ago. I commuted from home my first year out of college and I distinctly remember the first time it down poured during my commute into the city. To say I was miserable and pissed off is a major understatement. The fact that I was ill-prepared with my rain gear (both boots and coat) made matters even worse. Everything was soaked. And that was the day I invested in my first pair of Hunters. Fast forward two months, and I purchased my first pair of heavy duty Uggs – the Adirondack Waterproof Boots in anticipation of the treacherous snowfall we’d face that winter.

While it seems there are only a hand full of well-known brands that carry durable, waterproof and longstanding winter boots, there is a vast selection to choose from. One pair I recently purchased for a more casual look are the Sperry “Saltwater” Duck Boots. I love how they are a shorter boot and I can wear cozy camp socks for a worn-in and laid back look. It appears our winter is just going downhill from here, so I’d recommend putting money into a nice pair of winter boots.
