Like many, I scoff at puffy coats for sub-thermal temperatures and thumb my nose at fur-lined snow shoes. Do I sound pessimistic? Hell yeah, I do. Winter is impossible and nothing ever works. I’m a veteran of two polar vortexes with extremely low blood pressure and chronic cold feet. Over the years, I’ve amassed a king’s ransom in smart wool and an arsenal of boots. My closet looks like a DSW graveyard. But, this year Im ready for a real investment. And so begins my quest to find the perfect winter boot, the winter boot to rule them all. So ladies, please help. What’s the perfect winter boot? Here’s the basic criteria: It should be waterproof, comfortable, and not ugly. Suggest away!
