Great Gear Award: Best Winter Boots

Yesterday, three unrelated strangers stopped me on the street to tell me I looked hot. It just happened again in the elevator of my building this morning as I headed out to walk Stella, my pup. I wasn’t even awake and I may not have brushed my teeth yet, but still, longing looks came my way…

Okay, to be clear, these folks didn’t exactly say I looked “hot” – it was more like “toasty,” and they were referring to my feet.  They were right! I was wearing my amazing SOREL 1964 winter boots, these huge waterproof  can-survive-an-ice-age -or-a-nuclear-explosion stompers, and in them  snow, ice and water pile-ups are no problemo. Seriously.  Pardon the pun, but they make SLUSH FUN. Designed to keep you warm in temps as low as -25 degrees, wear these tundra-savvy boots and you won’t care if the streets are plowed or not – you won’t notice! What are your weather-busting finds? Let me know. xox Steph

Sorel Tivoli boots. $100.


  1. Hi Steph,

    I LOVE that you posted about Sorel boots, they are the greatest winter boots ever made. In fact, I grew up with them in Northern Canada, so it’s funny to see that they’ve become a trend across the colder US states.

    Love the site:)

  2. With a good pair of boots you can laugh at snow, sludge and slush. Fear no puddle. Do they make any that don’t have laces (e.g., pull on or zip instead)?


    • Hi Donna,
      Yes, they do. Go to (tried to link but alas didn’t connect in this space.)
      The Women’s Tivoli Slip is really cute, warm and waterproof. Sorel makes Wellies, too.
      You Will Love.
