When it's winter outside, we start thinking about the right clothes. Boots are no exception. The right choice of winter shoes is especially important if you live in a very severe climate. Boots should protect you when there is snow or rain, dirt or icy soil outside. Here are some tips to help you choose the right winter shoes.
Fashion VS reliability
If you follow fashion and prefer high-heeled shoes, remember to wear them in the snow. High heels are beautiful, but not if you "lose them" in the snow.
What is your priority? Winter boots should be warm, comfortable, soft and easy to wear, let your feet breathe, protect you from leaking and do not let you fall on icy roads. That does not mean that such boots can not be beautiful.
Let's start with the material. "Of course" is the best. Leather is an ideal variant for winter boots. It protects the feet from frost and leakage. It takes the shape of your legs, leather holds the heat, so you can stay out for a very long time.
Suede material is not bad. But it requires a lot of care. It's not as practical as leather, but suede shoes look stylish.
The cheapest option is of course artificial leather, but not for the winter.
When talking from the inside, natural fur is always good for winter boots. It keeps the heat, lets the feet breathe. With faux fur you only get one effect – sweating and as a result – no pleasant smell.
Sole is a very important part. There are many different materials such as rubber, polyurethane, polyvinyl chloride. All of them are waterproof. The sole should not be thin, so you do not freeze.
Today there are a variety of winter boots: models, sizes, materials. But it's up to you to decide what kind of shoes you need to choose to be both stylish and healthy.
