Stylish Snow Boots

This morning it was cold - I mean like FREEZING cold and the school playground is just a muddy field so I refuse to put suede boots on for them to get ruined. So I put on my fugly boots that I bought from Lands's End last year (in the sale). I know they are fugly, you don't have to tell me but they keep me warm and dry and I don't care if they get covered in crap - which all footwear does every day of the sodding week. Perhaps our year end gift could be a lorry load of tarmac?

Here is a pic of me doing the school run in said awful snow boots: 



I came back home, glugged a bucket of coffee and headed out for a friendly chat/meeting with Toni from Reasons To Be Cheerful and then on to a friends house for more coffee.


Back home now and I'm in search of some nicer boots for the snow that is going to drop in the next month (I am not a weatherman but we've not had snow, we will have snow, so my prediction is within the month it will fall - so I am giving you plenty of chance to buy suitable footwear!)!

Lands End (USA but ship to the UK) have got an amazing pair that I wish they'd stocked last year when I was looking. They are in the sale - £45 (reduced from £120)


Sorel do the best snow boots EVER but I don't like their prices (average price is £160)



Sports Direct have an amazing sale on Ladies Snow Boots right now - prices from £42


John Lewis have a small (but very good) selection too - again, the prices are high for a casual snow boot wearer like me (who never goes skiing!) - prices from £140


Do you own snow boots? Are they ALL really ugly and really expensive? Do they 'do the job'? I've yet to try mine out but here's hoping the snow falls soon and I can use them for real!

  2. Yes! I got a v expensive pair from Fifty Degrees North when I was in the US two years ago. It hasn't snowed here since I got back, so they're still waiting to be used :(

  4. Yes! I've got some Timberland ones that I ADORE! They keep my feet warm and dry and are super comfy. They weren't cheap but they are on their third winter and I wear them nearly every day from October to March (work is a very cold and muddy place) so I think they've earned their keep!

    1. oooh Timberland, of course! I think they are a random investment buy - snow boots that is, not Timberland boots in general!

  5. I've got some great Karrimor boots I'm looking forward to road testing when the snow arrives as I'll need the decent grips to keep me upright!! Jane xx
