Boots are pricey and there is no way around it. Good winter boots are made from heavy-duty materials and need to serve a functional purpose other than looking good, so you want to make sure that you’re paying money to effectively protect yourself against the elements. Nothing makes me cringe more than shelling out money on something that doesn’t offer any “visual delight” whatsoever. Luckily many brands are resolving this conundrum by taking into account form AND function, but I’m always shocked that despite the wide-variety world of winter-wear, people seem to be walking around with slightly different versions of the exact same boots. Uggs and Sorel reign superior but here are some other brands of varying price points that you may want to consider:
