Ask The Bean: Cold Weather Boots

Dear Bean,

My main thrill and obsession are shoes and with this weather, it seems like my once stylish impression has fallen off the map. The only trail I’m leaving behind is one with an UGG imprint. I want to redeem my prideful strut but keep my piggies toasty and warm. Help!

Cold Soles

Dear Cold Soles,

As a fellow shoe addict I’ve learned to compromise with this unbearable winter weather. There’s no way I’ll stick my feet into a pair of UGGs and be defeated — unless I’m walking my dog where no one will see me. Instead, I give my piggies a pep talk and sacrifice a little warmth for a lot of style. It’s not like we’re climbing Mt. Everest, but simply walking the city streets. Sure it would be nice to wear anything as long as it’s comfortable, but we fashionistas don’t wave the white flag to the white flakes that easily.

A kitten heel works perfectly in this weather. A controllable, comfortable stack that will give you two extra inches of confidence. With a warm lining and grip on the sole, (you can always buy one and stick it on) your days of embarrassing slips are over.

With dull boots that are usually in muted hues of black shades and earth tones, accents are vital. From fur to studs, be sure to revivify your boot with a touch of excitement. Just because seasons change it doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice the trends. Military boots are still in high demand. Add a faux-fur lining and the winter streets await your trendy feet.
