November 4, 2017 was a big day in my life. For the first time since I moved to Canada 20 years ago, I bought my first pair of actual winter boots! I have always been a more “style over practicality” type of person, and although a pair of boots won’t change that about me, I had to admit that I was getting sick of my footwear dictating what I can and can’t do during the months of November-April.
We have had a ton of snow over the past couple of weeks, and it has been cold! As much as I would love to keep wearing my heels throughout this, it just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
After a lot of Pinterest browsing and wandering around the mall feeling kind of sorry for myself (have i mentioned how much I miss summer?!), I finally decided on the Timberland Teddy Fleece Boots . They come in ten different colours (I got the taupe ones), they’re waterproof, fleece lined (hello warm feet!), have a rugged rubber sole, and they’re kind of cute!
My favourite thing about these boots, other than the whole warm/safe on ice thing, is that they can be worn two ways – either with the top up or folded down. It’s like getting two pairs of boots for the price of one!
During my Pinterest browsing, I found a video showing different outfit ideas for women – It’s definitely worth checking out! How to wear Timberland boots / outfits
So far I have worn them with leather leggings, jeans (black, blue, and ripped) and they look great with everything. Most importantly, my feet have stayed warm and my butt has not met the snow yet so they are clearly doing their job! Definitely worth the $165!
To all of you that live in winter-y climates, how do you handle the footwear issue? Any tips?!
