After all of this unpredictable Michigan weather we have been having, it can be hard to decide what exactly to wear in the morning. One thing that everyone needs to be wearing around campus right now is boots.
With temperatures below zero and slush, ice and snow everywhere, it is important to keep your feet warm and dry, but there is no reason you can’t look good while doing it.
One of the more popular brands known for boots that has taken off in the last few years is UGG.
The Australian based shoe line makes their boots from real sheepskin. The boots are meant to be of high quality and fashionable for both men and women.
You can get UGG boots from their website uggaustralia.com or from retail stores like Journey’s and The Walking Company. If the UGG brand is a little more than what you’re willing to pay, you can get similar styles for slightly lower prices from Bear paw. These boots are available at bearpaw.com and at many of the same retailers where UGG boots are available.
Similar styles of boots can be found at clothing stores for even cheaper prices at places like Wet Seal and, of course, Payless, which carries the Airwalk brand.
If your wardrobe doesn’t really fit with the style of those boots then you can go for a more sporty approach with Timberlands. These boots are made to be waterproof and durable, and they are very in-style for both men and women.
The classic “wheat” Timberlands seem to go with just about any casual look. You can also purchase Timberlands in black, gray and a variety of other fashion colors, or custom design your own pair at timberland.com. You can order them online or purchase them at shoe stores like Footlocker and Champs.
Another brand similar to the style of Timberlands and of the same high quality is Sorel. These come in many different looks as well and have the same kind of “outdoorsy” feel that Timberlands do.
With spring a couple of months away and these temperatures going up and down, another useful style of boots to have in your closet is rain boots. From designers like Coach and Michael Kors to department stores like Target, you can find rain boots in any color, size or pattern.
Keep your feet warm and the bottoms of your pants dry by expanding your shoe wardrobe with different styles of boots. Snow boots, rain boots or casual boots are necessities as well as fashion statements.
