Buying Shoes For Winter And The Top Tips You Need To Know


Winter weather can sometimes be unpredictable, but the chilly season hasn’t quite left us yet (just look outside your window). If you happen to still be looking at shoes for winter and you think it might be too late to get a great pair, do not fret.

By following this guide, you will learn top tips for winter shoe-shopping and some brilliant styles to opt for that you’ll be able to carry through to next season.

Try a classic winter boot that never goes out of style

When you think of a winter boot, it’s easy for a black or brown pair with a standard zip to spring to mind. However, boots come in all shapes and sizes and are perfect for a range of occasions. Whether you are off to work or going for a walk, boots can provide much needed comfort and style to the soles of your feet.

Some of the types of boots you can opt for are:

A great way to work out what type of boot you should buy is by establishing your body type and going for a style that is going to not only be stylish but flattering, also. Primarily, boots are for keeping your feet warm, even when the weather outside is incredibly chilly, so invest in a pair that will keep your feet well insulated in all conditions.

Winter wellies are always a winner

Winter just wouldn’t be the same without a good pair of wellington boots (even if it hasn’t been snowing). They’re great for dog walking, going on a hike or even for just popping to the supermarket when the weather is a bit damp.

A good tip is to invest in a pair of wellies that are not likely to tear or split easily, making them as durable as possible in harsh weather conditions. If you are really struggling though, these 4 tips are a good starting points when choosing a great pair of wellington boots.

 

These are as follows:

1. Lining - If you are an avid walker and you are investing in a pair of wellies that are going to be comfortable enough it’s a good idea to choose a pair that has lining. It will keep you warm and dry and is extremely practical for walking long distances.

2. Sole - The key for a good wellington boot is the tread pattern. A rubber sole is a popular choice as it has the ability to grip for enhanced traction and durability. You are going to want your wellies to last as long as possible so paying close attention to the sole is key.

3. Height - Wellington boots usually come in a standard knee length height. However, nowadays there are an abundance of different heights including ankle length and three quarter length to choose from, depending on your preference. It’s a good idea to investigate which boot length will suit your height before making a purchase.

4. Leave space for socks - When you have chosen your wellington boots, make sure you buy a size that’s going to leave you with some room for socks, especially if the temperature decreases and you need extra warmth. A decent pair of wellies could last you for years so it’s worth putting plenty of thought into your purchase.

Versatile boots for any occasion

If you spend a lot of time outside on your feet - whether that be for work-related purposes or for leisure reasons - an excellent pair of shoes that are going to support your soles are hugely important.

Here are a few instances where boots might be useful in the winter:

Every job comes with its own set of safety guidelines and footwear will almost always be an important factor. Durability, weatherproofing and great fit are just some of the reasons why work boots need to be carefully thought about.

Some professions may find that work boots and walking boots go hand in hand (construction workers are a good example of this) so a good, versatile boot is a staple item in any wardrobe. Your feet support the rest of your body so investing in a top quality walking boot and understanding why they are necessary is crucial for your overall health.

Wearing neutral coloured boots are usually a good colour option if you are looking for an everyday pair that will match a variety of outfits. This can also make them useful for work (providing they meet dress code).

In a similar fashion to casual boots, a good dress boot can be a wonderfully versatile option for men and women. Whether you are going out straight from work or you want to turn your daytime attire into an evening outfit, a quality dress boot with comfort, support and timeless style can certainly fit the bill.

With the winter season still making an appearance, it’s the perfect time to have a browse at some great options that will enable you to take part in outdoor activities, battle the elements and all while keeping warm.
