The winter footwear dilemma
I've got a confession to make. Are you ready? I hate snow. There, I've said it now.
You can judge me all you like, but my reasons for it are simple: it's a hassle, it's dangerous and it ruins my clothes.
The benefits of having a fun snowball fight or making a snowman in the front garden are far outweighed by the journeys it spoils, increased risk of injury and the pain involved in having to clear the driveway twice a day.
I didn't mind it when I was younger, but with the onset of ice and the tease of snow to come, I'm in the midst of a complete winter wardrobe revamp just to get me through the season unscathed.
At the moment I'm on the hunt for a pair of snow boots, as even if it's slippy and awful, I still want to keep up my walk to and from work if at all possible.
Things I'd like to avoid are silver or white material, (these are snow boots not moon boots) and I'd like to ensure that they have adequate grip on them and will keep my feet toasty and dry.
This is an easy quest when you're younger but unfortunately the pursuit of a stylish women's snow boot is akin to the search for the Loch Ness Monster. We all know it exists but we've yet to find it.
Wellies just don't cut it, as they're hardly very warm, so I guess I'll just have to soldier on till I find the perfect snow boots.
I managed to find my ideal coat through asking people in the street where they bought theirs, which worked really well and was far more attractive than trawling through the shops, so perhaps I'll try this.
What do you look for in winter footwear?
