The IWTBH Fall Shoe Guide: Toasty Boots


A big snow storm is coming, and once again I am not prepared shoe-wise (or otherwise!) So I am looking at quite a few footwear options to get me through the next one. At the start of the search, my eye went directly to these classic Moon Boots that have quite the ’70s aprés ski vibe and would work perfectly with skinnier jeans.You can’t go wrong with the most classic of all — an L.L. Bean duck boot lined with super-warm shearling.
And if you really don’t want to let on that you’re wearing a full-on snow boot, these fleece-lined Doc Martens are for you.

Some of my favorite freezing-weather booties are these very Uggs that are just a cozy no-socks-required go-to year after year.

The North Face’s puffy sneaker-boot hybrid has a fun retro appeal.

These luxe suede shearling-lined hiking boots look like the old-school ’70s deal minus the red laces.

I’ve written about them before, but I figured Eddie Bauer’s chelsea duck boots (still 50% off) were worth another mention.

Here’s a cool chunky punk-meets-alpine style.

Sorel’s Caribiou is a seaonal classic.This Rag & Bone style is like an Ugg mixed with a GH Bass from the early ’80s!

Think of these Hunters as a down parka for your feet, complete with an adjustable top to keep snow from sneaking in.

  1. Sounds like we’re getting mostly rain and sleet… I miss SNOW!!! The Sorels are what I’m drawn to, but the older I get, the more appealing a lighter weight boot becomes. I never thought I’d consider Moon boots, but here I am.
