The frequent snowfall and freezing temperatures here and in many other areas in the country have women everywhere searching for a cute, durable pair of snow boots. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend a lot of money on something that I’ll only wear when it snows. To make the list, the boots had to be stylish, but more importantly, they had to be affordable. The three contenders on this list are all available for less than $50.
Totes Claudia Boots
The Totes Claudia Boots from Kohls ring in at $49.99 online. If you use the promo code FLAKE, you’ll get an additional 15% off, or you can use code SNOW to get 20% off if you spend $100 or more. These codes are only good through 1/20/14, but they’re still a great deal without the discount. The boots are offered in both black and white. They are waterproof with a faux-fur lining that are sure to keep your tootsies warm even when traipsing through the snow. The lace-up design makes them a little more accommodating to those of us with wider calves.
Merona Nikko Snow Boots
Target’s Merona Nikko Snow Boots are only $39.99, and you can save an additional 5% if you have a Red Card. The faux-leather uppers and thick rubber outsoles make these shoes as comfortable as they are attractive. The reviews say that the design makes these a little difficult to get on, so consider order half a size or one size larger if you have a wide foot. You can always make them a little more snug by wearing thick socks.
Mountain Warehouse Frost Women’s Snow Boot
Amazon offers this Mountain Warehouse Snow Boot in purple and white. The boots are waterproof/snowproof with a sherpa lining to keep your toes warm and deep lug soles for staying steady on your feet. The opening is Velcro, so it’s easy to slide these on and off as needed. Go half a size bigger if you’re in half sizes, as the boots are only available in sizes 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. At only $37.99 per pair and $5.00 for shipping, get both colors!
Wear warm socks even with snow boots that are thickly insulated. You’ll be more comfortable with feet that are too warm rather than feet that aren’t warm enough. If you have a pair of boots that would be suitable for winter wear if only they were waterproof (usually suede or leather), you can purchase waterproofing kits online or at many shoe stores.
