I thought I walked a lot in Seattle, but it was nothing compared to here in New York. Lots of stair climbing in and out of the subway too. Comfortable boots are a must, especially in the winter when it is cold and I can’t just throw on some “fast flats” and then switch back to heels. My feet would freeze! And boots aren’t as easy to carry around.
For all those New York City bloggers wearing 5 inch heels I figure it is because of one of the reasons below:
1.They have a much higher tolerance for discomfort
2. They plan on cabbing or taking car service
3. They take pictures and then go change
But I believe that fashion and function can be found together, and I’ve been doing my best to track down the best of both worlds for my everyday life.
Here are my comfy boot picks for the winter season:
These Tommy Hilfiger boots are such a sleek riding boot with just enough of a heel to give some lift. $189
My B.O.C. boots are great for all day comfort, and the buckle on the side is perfect for adjusting the calf width. $139.95
On a budget? Try these Old Navy booties for $44.94. Only issue I have is that they don’t come in half sizes. I ended up with a 9 and am just going to put in an insole, the 8 was too snug. I love them in the burgundy and navy too!
If you want a sleek bootie that is a bit dressier, these Sam Edelman’s are a great choice. $139.95
I haven’t tried any of the below personally, but they all get great reviews and have a not too high and not too thin heel for all day comfort.
Loft Booties, love the two tone. $98
I definitely have my eye on these cute oxford wedges from Sole Society. A steal at $69.95
And finally another great bootie from Sole Society, could be dressed up or down. $89.95
What do you wear to stay warm, comfy, and stylish in the cold winter months?
