Hottest Boots for the Coldest Season

Turn the frightful weather into a delightful reason to invest in some of the hottest winter boots around! In many parts of the country, winter has entered its "deep freeze" stage and that means a greater need to keep feet warm. Thank goodness winter boots have evolved from pre-historic monstrocities to the latest fashion statements. Whether you like to keep it simple with a plain suede boot or like to go all out with fur embellishments and embroidery, there's a boot out there that's sure to fit your wardrobe (not to mention your wallet). Unsure of what style to invest in? Here are this season's hottest sellers from Shoebuy's Boot Shop: Born Yuma This après ski-boot offers super-soft protection and comfort against the elements in even the hardest environs and under the toughest conditions. Made of full-grain chamois nubuck and authentic shearling, this boot is lightweight, warm and easy to lace-up. The outsole is made of a unique evergreen rubber and features contrast stitching and Opanka hand-sewn construction. Shown here in a rich raisin nubuck, but also available in dark olive (dark green), parchment (off-white) and peru (tan/brown). Tommy Hilfiger Kiona An incredibly popular style that has been featured in countless magazines and fashion guides, this crepe wedge boot seems to be the “it” boot for the season. With a combination suede and shearling upper, it is a style that’s meant to be noticed. Because the boot has a wedge heel, it’s incredibly comfortable for long days. In fact, a customer who recently purchased the Kiona from Shoebuy says: “This boot is very comfortable, warm, and cute. The wedge heel makes them easy to walk in. They are easy to take off and put back on if you go through airport security. I wear an 8 and they are true to size. I get many compliments when I wear them. I like them so much I bought them in all 3 colors. Try them! You'll be happy you did!” Shown in dark brown, but also available in forest green and khaki. Maxine of Canada Susan This funky pull-on scrunch boot is another great wedge heeled boot for the winter. The upper is made of water-resistant suede with a shearling upper trim and inside lining, providing comfort and warmth. The outsole is flexible and slip-resistant, which means it’s safe to wear on slick surfaces. Shown here in black suede, it’s also available in brown, taupe and white suede. Koolaburra Excalibur Short The predecessor of the now famous Ugg® boot, these short sheepskin boots by Koolaburra are also made in Australia. The Excalibur short is the top of the line in sheepskin footwear with 100% merino wool upper and a sole made of the highest grade T.P.R., enabling it to handle all weather conditions. Plus point: the insole is removable. Khombu Snow Bunny The Snowbunny is the ultimate in futuristic winter wear, featuring a long-wearing upper, thick foam lining and a bungee lace closure system. The outsole is made of non-slip rubber for great traction. Shown here in blue/silver nylon, but also available in antique metallic, black crinkle, camo print, pink/black nylon, silver metallic and white crinkle. Aerosoles Squish Washer As most Aerosoles are, these adorable boots are the ultimate in comfort footwear, featuring an extra-cushioned insole and a flexible, lightweight traction sole. The upper is made of warm, cozy suede and is trimmed with fleecy faux fur. The pom-poms add a cute touch to this mid-calf boot. Shown here in tan suede, but also available in brown suede and black suede. Sofft Nordic The Nordic is a mukluk style, knee-high shearling boot that's a stylish way to bear even the lowest temperatures. A great alternative to the "been there, done that" ug style boots, the Nordic is made with premium American and European leathers. The inside is designed with Drilex high-performance linings and a cushioned sole with the signature Sofft logo print. It has rubber lug-design outsoles with a multi-color leaf detail ensuring traction on any surface. The front has corset-style lacing Minnetonka Knee High Fringe Boot This fiery number is definitely not for the faint of heart. An incredibly comfortable knee-high boot, the High Fringe is made of suede with rawhide front lacing and a crepe sole. Shown here in red, the High Fringe is available in 6 other colors: Light Blue Suede, Lime Suede, Orange Suede, Pink Suede, Purple Suede, and Putty Suede.

The Self features a leather wrapped heel and a leather wrapped buckle accent on the toe box for added style. The footbed is lightly padded for added comfort. Also available in black calf, desert sand/tobacco calf, navy/white calf and red/white calf. Etienne Aigner Thea in Steel Blue Calf A beautiful stacked heel wedge sandal that's perfect for the spring, the Thea has an adjustable ankle strap and a woven front strap. The sandals looks light and demure as shown here in steel blue calf, but it's also available in godiva calf (dark brown) and squash calf (sounds disgusting, but is actually a light tan that's a great neutral color). Etienne Aigner Thrill in Bronze Metallic Kid This fashionable slingback is perfect for the day or the evening. The Thrill features a stacked heel, a stretchable sling, and a peep toe in front. For a dressier look, opt for the metallic kid (as shown), but if you prefer a more toned down color, either the sahara calf or white calf look great. Etienne Aigner Advise in Pale Pink/Off-White This fun skimmer can be worn in late spring or early summer, paired with anything from jeans to a light skirt. The rounded toe box is comfortable and the metal and leather ornamentation adds a little shine to an otherwise very mellow slip-on. Also available in celery/linen, pale blue/off-white and off-white/saddle. Etienne Aigner Launch in Linen Calf The gorgeous slide wouldn't remotely look out of place on a beach in St. Barts or on a cruise in the Mediterranean! The adjustable leather strap that covers the arch of the foot is adorned with tiny sea shells, sea glass and beads for the perfect oceanic touch, while the stacked, sculpted heel adds a little boost. Looks fantastic in the off-white linen calf shown here, but for a more bolder look, the salmon calf or natural calf versions are also great. View the rest of the Etienne Aigner Collection at!
