REAL Winter Boots... And No Uggs!

I wanted to do a post on affordable, stylish winter boots that you can actually wear IN the snow. I live in Michigan and yet I haven't had a pair of boots since elementary school. Boots would have been a great idea while I was in college trekking around campus in the snow. Maybe this year is my year. Doubt it though, I'm pretty broke ;)

Sorel "Cate the Great" Boot

This is a great winter boot with gorgeous styling. The boot is approximately 13" with a rubber sole and a leather/suede combination for the body of the boot. I love the sort of corset style. Removable liner. Comfort level up to -25°F.

Availability: NordstromBloomingdale'sPiperlime
Price: $200.00

Keen "Snowmass" High Boot
Waterproof, slip-on boot by Keen. A simple design but a beautiful little boot. It has a removable thermal heat shield footbed. Whatever that might be ;)

Availability: Piperlime
Price: $140.00

Sorel "Mackenzie Lace" Holiday Boot
Another great Sorel boot; I think this is so cute. This boot you can pull on and has a warm fleece lining w/removable inner boot. Features quick dry removable footbed. Other colors available.

Availability: Dave's Pro Shop ($127.49), Piperlime ($150.00)

The North Face "Nuptse" Boot
This is an interesting looking boot. It's also available in white but I like the black ones much more. 600 fill down insulation. Snap closure. 6 1/2" shaft.

Availability: Piperlime
Price: $90.00

Privo "Wheatgrass" Boot
A beautiful leather boot by Privo with a thick rubber sole. This is a sophisticated looking snow boot which isn't always easy to find.

Availabilty: Nordstrom
Price: 149.95

Hunter Tall High Gloss Rain Boot
I love these for their colors and their simple but beautiful style. I have been considering the violet boot for awhile now; it best matches my coat. These pretty much need a liner (sold separately).

Availability: Nordstrom has the best price right now @ $61.90 as opposed to other sites where they are $125.00.

Nike "Winter Solstice" Boot
This boot may not be for everyone but I love the sort of punky look of this one. I also like how the actual shoe part doesn't look so boot-like; it looks more like a Nike sneaker.

Availability: Lady Foot LockerNordstrom
Price: $100.00
