    Default Shopping for Snow / Winter Boots...

    Here in Texas, I don't use snow boots too often, but I do usually make a ski trip or other cold weather trip once or twice a year. I use to always wear an old pair of Dr. Martens, but I had them since I was like 15 so my foot grew a little and I finally sent them off to Goodwill.
    Since I don't get a lot of wear from them, I am looking for a moderately priced snow boot and something I can wear both under and over jeans. I will pretty much always be wearing them casually-- on vacation and the occasional days we actually have winter weather. I have picked out a few pairs that I think would suffice, but would like some feedback... especially from you gals that are more snow savvy!

    1) Bearpaw -- A little sturdier looking than the flat-footed Uggs. Even if I spray these with a waterproofer, I don't know that these will stand up to playing in the snow.




    2) Dr. Martens Jenny Boot -- Supposedly made of water-resistant suede. Again, even if I spray these with a waterproofer, I don't know that these will stand up to playing in the snow. Do these look too manly?





    3) Dr. Martens Allen -- These are a unisex style... that makes me wonder if they will also be too manly for me.





    4) Franco Sarto Moto -- Probably the most feminine style, but may be kinda cheap looking... or it could just be the pics.






    BTW, I have a couple of pairs of Fryes, but they are more the "fashion boots" with slick soles and I am not really loving any of the ones with more textured snow soles.
    maybe these 12R Engineers, but these may be more boot than I need...

    hmmmm... maybe something RED next

    I'm not a snow expert at all, but the 2nd last pair are my faves.

    snow boots are just really unattractive. everytime I find a pair of boots that look cute they are inevitably not made for snow. then the ones that are for snow and look good are like $300, which is more than I want to spend since I don't have a lot of chances to wear them.


    ETA: another style i found...

    Lassen Mary-- i like that these have an inside zip and are leather (textured leather so they look kinda suede in the pic), but i kinda wish the heel was a tad higher.

    Have you looked at Sorel? Snow isn't that wonderful so you should have fun with it. Sorel has some fun patterns too! I don't think they break the bank. You do have to be careful with the suede uggs. The wetness of the snow will seep through . The ones withe the rubber over the front of the toe tend to work best.

    For that matter, just get some Hunter's and some of their fabulous socks and it should keep you warm enough!
