I did a very unfashionable editor job this winter: I accidentally bought a new pair of boots before the wave cold weather set it. I basically alternated between a couple of the same pairs throughout the season, wearing them non-stop until they unsightly disintegrated. It’s not necessary to buy a new pair every year, but as one person stated that the boots are, she is very favorite shoesand prepare a stylish mood board before each season changes, which is a pretty big deal. Considering we’re in the thick of winter, and my walking boots are also on their last legs before completely self-destructing, I feel now is the last time to pull the trigger.
For all my procrastination, I’ve found that there’s a good side to this late game shopping. Thanks to the sheer volume of post-winter sales, a lot of the styles I’ve had my eye on are already priced lower than they were a few weeks ago (suddenly buying an extra pair that looks great now). To share the riches, I’ve jotted down the cutest boots I’ve seen along the way and gathered them up here. If you’re interested in a particular style, I’ve broken them down by category as well, so keep scrolling and pick your favorite.
