Even on the iciest, windiest, snowiest, bone-achingly coldest winter mornings, I'll be motivated to go outside because it means pulling on my bright orange knee-high sheepskin rubber MoovBoots. They're a prettier, more fun and less pretentious lovechild of Hunter boots and UGGs.
Vulcanized rubber is low maintenance and keeps your feet dry so you can stride confidently through the ickiest of slush without worrying about ruining your boots. Plus, Australian merino sheepskin lining keeps you warm and comfortable.

When it comes to shoes, many of us seem to put them on the back burner until we are just about half way out the door. The biggest problem (for many of us) is having the right practical shoes in our wardrobe. If we had just put a little more time and consideration into our weekly Sunday shopping spree, this issue could have been avoided. Check out our guide to having the right shoes in your wardrobe this winter that will leave you feeling prepared and stylish for any occasion.
Flat Riding Boots
Ankle boots or "booties" if you will are back, and cuter than ever! This is a style you won't want to miss out on this Fall.
Many of us are probably overstocked with shoes, but it doesn't hurt to pick yourself up a pair of booties to rock with your skinny jeans or leggings with a skirt. We found a few places online and stores that are just as obsessed as we are!
This years super huge collection of ankle boots are sexified. The best part about ankle boots is that they are perfect for work and play, and the transition is effortless! Check out some styles and get your hands on them now!
Leopard is everywhere this fall, from Current/Elliott's dappled skinnies ($198) to Opening Ceremony's bold navy maxi skirt ($169). But the most lowkey way to rock the trend is flat boots. Rendered in casual silhouettes from desert boots to ankle booties, leopard print is a quirky way to mix prints in your fall weekend look.
A staple for fashionista's weekend looks last fall, the desert boot gets a rad makeover in leopard, by Matiko. Bonus points for the flattering hidden wedge. $118 at Nasty Gal.
Are sports becoming the new wave era in fashion? Women are dolling themselves up for football, basketball and now, baseball! The San Francisco Giants are especially causing ladies to stess over what to wear to a game. They wonder, Can heels be worn to a game? How will I actually climb up the crazy high bleachers?
What to wear is the question, and the first thing to do is make a list of pros and cons. Then toss out the uncomfortable heels, and trade them in for a pair of Puma sneakers! Or, if sneakers just won’t cut it, slip on some ballet flats or studded mid-calf boots from Miss Sixty!
For the past few nights I couldn’t sleep; I’ve been having nightmares of an empty shoe closet! I don’t leave the house for fear that a shoe robber might take away my foot treasures. I have been thinking of all the places I could hide my shoes: under my bed (yeah right! that’s the first place to look plus that won’t hold all of my shoes.) Maybe I’ll build a secret room like in the movies behind the bookshelf, where you pull this one book and the bookshelf moves out of the way revealing a secret door; behind it and a room filled with my “sweet shoes”. That’s never going to happen; my husband will not agree to it, he already thinks I am crazy (about shoes).
I decided to stop in our local Bread & Butter located on Park Avenue for a cup of freshly brewed Hazelnut coffee. Concerned about my list of things to do or write about today, I started looking around. Everyone was dressed pretty warm for the weather, but nothing actually stood out about any of them. Until I noticed one lady and her shoulder bag which was beautiful, but then I noticed her boots. They were a comfy yet stylish pair of Sorel weather boots. I loved them immediately. I asked her where she'd gotten them and she'd actually received them as a well-welcomed Christmas gift from her mom. Kudos, mom! Once again, I'm all about the winter boots this season, especially since every time we think to put them up, it's time to retrieve them once more.
The BCBG Max Azria Willis Rain Boot has solved all of my winter questions about how to keep my feet dry during this winter's season. You can purchase these boots at www.endless.com. They also come in a subdued black. What better way to brighten an otherwise snow-ridden, iced-over, the: I hope I don't fall, kinda day? These are by far my favorite of the season. Enjoy.
Great pumps are always a classic match with a fun party dress, but why not try to add a bit of an edge to your outfit? Take off the boring black heels, and throw on a pair of these festive, gorgeous booties for a change. They look amazing with a short cocktail dress and textured tights, or completely change the feel of simple black legging. Here are a few of my current favorites!
If you want to splurge, try these Tory Burch Corbet Glitter-Covered Leather Ankle Boots. These sell for $395.00, but can really be worn almost year round. With a 4" heel and a 1" hidden platform, they are extremely comfortable as well.
