You guys. It's cold. And I'm not a fan. I mean, it's hard enough trying to keep perpetually cold feet warm in the summer, so by the time winter rolls around, it's game-over. I need, like, the thickest fur-lined boots to keep my feet from freezing over because #circulationprobs. Oh, you too? Then let's check out some of the coziest shearling, flannel, and faux-fur-lined boots, because honestly, socks alone just don't cut it.
I remember growing up I always complained about my cold feet (trying to fall asleep with cold feet is actually the worst, isn't it?), and my mom used to always tell me to just put on a pair of socks. One problem with this plan: Your feet need to be giving off at least a little bit of warmth so socks have something to trap, right? And the other problem with this plan is that most socks are made to breathe. Which means they're not secure against the effects of cold air. What feet like this (feet that would ideally just be wrapped in mini electric blankets until May) need to survive the snow, wind, and freezing temperatures, are boots lined with the power to keep the coldest feet warm. Boots like these 15 stylish options.
