As I'm sitting here I can hear the blaring of snow blowers, as the sky opened up and Buffalo has been dumped on by a large amount of what we're famous for having.....snow. It's definitely a winter wonderland and though I'm not a huge fan of snow, I am prepared with winter gear for when I have to venture outside. I live in the North East (United States) and I'm still in shock when people tell me they don't own a pair of winter boots! I hate being wet and cold, so you bet your sweet bottom I have winter boots to keep my tootsies warm! Though they may not be the most visually fashionable of items to have in your closet, warmth and function is always super fashionable in my book.

I have two pairs of winter boots, one for function and one that are a bit more fashionable. The functional boots are much like the ones to the left in the collage, they are like a chalet type boot that are water-resistant. They are not very pretty, but they are warm with a faux fur interior. I wear these for when it's snowing and I have to run errands, I want to play in the snow or when it's extremely cold out.
I bought mine at a thrift store, they are a discounted boot.
You can find more fashionable winter boots, but they usually aren't going to keep you as warm and dry as the mighty beastly snow boots. I have a pair that are trimmed with faux fur, are knee high and have a slight wedge. They are warm, but if I stood in snow for too long the wetness will seep in and I'm one sad lady. I usually wear the more fashion ones when the sidewalks are clear, when we're going to and from the car and I can slip into a change of shoes, or when it's not that cold out.
The biggest saving grace when buying winter boots is that most boots are black, yay!!!!
What sort of footwear do you wear when (or if) your area has snow or cold weather?
