Elegant yet casual
Cowboy boots have a distinctive Western feel about them, but riding boots are naturally a bit more prim and proper and a bit more refined than their more casual Western cousins. The Frye Melissa Button Boot manages to combine the elegance of the riding boot with a more casual look via a slouchy shaft design. The tall shaft and wide opening allows them to slip on easily, whether you’re wearing leggings, jeans or chunky woolen socks. They’re also made of high quality supple leather, which will look beautiful for the lifetime of the boots. Comfortable and stylish UGG is a company that’s known for making some of the most comfortable boots in the world. The sheepskin lining is warm and cozy, and the breathability means you don’t even have to wear socks. They’re not always adored for their very basic appearance, though. Fortunately, UGG has created a brand new high-style boot that’s as chic as it is cozy. The Darcie boot has cute wraparound design features and a sturdy lifted heel, but it’s also rugged enough for making snowmen or collecting firewood. Every season is boot season, and there’s no better time to hunt down a few pair that can withstand the harsh weather of winter and also the high expectations you have for style. What’s more important in a winter boot for you: durability or style?
