Tips When Buying Winter Boots For Women

The reliable winter boots for women do not just provide warmth for both feet. Along with the warming insulation, the perfect winter boot should also be waterproof and, above all, stylish. What more should you look for when shopping for winter boots? What should be checked for when shopping for winter boots for women? Below are the few tips in choosing the best boots that will suit your needs.


A good tread on the boots will prevent anyone from slipping on snows and icy patches on the ground. Some boots for women do not have reliable treads as they often look bulky. Considering the safety it will provide to the women, it is best to really have winter boots installed with treads.


Winter boots are meant to be wet. It is essential the boots are made entirely of waterproof materials to ensure that both feet are kept warm and dry inside them.

Lightweight material

Although it is a given that most boots will really be a bit heavier than other kinds of footwear, there are boots that are made with lightweight materials to make walking in the snow comfortable. The lighter your boots are, the better as it is easier to wear them as you walk through snow.

Height and ankle support

All boots for women should have an ankle support. Especially with winter boots as slipping is common on snow covered pavements. Height is also as important which can be determined generally by the activities that you do. Taller boots are the best for women who are comfortable with hiking over snowy trails while shorter ones are okay for most sidewalks.

Right fit

Most people fail to recognize the importance of having boots that fit snugly on the feet. Even if they consider the number of socks to be put on before the boots, it really is not necessary as even with just using a layer of winter socks on, a snug fit boot will more than provide for the needed insulation.

Where to get the best deals

Winter boots for women can be found at almost all places that sells footwear. However not all shoe stores offer the best deals that will make you earn a lot of savings when you shop. When looking for great quality boots but still get to have an affordable price, consider looking from discount shops near you. You might want to check also the websites of some shoe stores as they often has online promos that are just waiting for you to feast upon. You just have to make sure that when you buy boots for women online, you need to have the appropriate size of your order as you will not be trying them out until they arrived from the courier. Choose a store that offers returns in case your boots will not fit.

Shopping for boots for women has been made easier and cheaper by online stores. You can just easily search for boots for women and you will have a number of boots to choose from that includes those you can use for the winter season.

A True Fashionista

While on the phone with my cousin last night, I discovered the definition of a true fashionista. The conversation began as it always does, with us exchanging woe-is-me tales, however, my woe-is-me story led to a it’s-time-for-creativity-in-fashion rant. Why? Because, I am tired of Ugg Boots and Skinny Jeans. In my opinion, Ugg Boots are ugly. Period. They do nothing for the average woman’s figure, in that they make your feet look huge and your calves look fat. Yes, I have heard how comfortable they are but, there other comfortable and warm boots. And to me the only reason these boots are popular is because they are expensive and several celebrities wore them before they became popular with the general public. These boots and the trend-followers that wear them exude no originality. They have no personality or style. They are just big, over-priced boots.

And as for Skinny Jeans, they are just not for me. These jeans are made entirely too tight and restrictive. My legs need to breathe and b/c I live in NYC, I walk a lot and I want to be comfortable while I do it. To me these jeans are popular because they are the only jean different from the traditional wide leg or boot cut to hit the scene in a while. And I’ll admit sometimes they look cute on the right girl with the right pair of boots or heels. But, that does not mean that they are for everyone. It seems to me that some women refuse to be original in their fashion sense simply because they would rather fit in than stand out. But, what they don’t realize is that “fitting in” is sooo high school. If you’re a grown woman then, it’s time to step your game up and be different.

Women like Iman, Naomi Campbell, and Tyra Banks are style icons because they are unique. During their respective heydays, they were fresh faces with style and grace. But, the key to their style is they each knew that they couldn’t be like everyone else, they could only be themselves. Any true fashionista knows this. Therefore, I give you the definition of a true fashionista: She knows and loves herself so, she has self-confidence. A true fashionista knows all the latest trends but, she picks and chooses which ones she will actually buy and wear. Meaning she is very picky, she does NOT buy things simply because they are name brand and expensive, that’s just silly and in this economy, unrealistic. Basically, she has her own individual style that only she can rock.
