5 great snow boots to keep toes warm and dry
If it’s a winter wonderland out there, take a break from the wrapping, baking and other holiday chores and get outside. Whether you hike through the woods, or wander through a decked-out downtown, you’ll need to consider your feet if you want to enjoy the experience.
Even with the thickest winter coat, if your hands and feet aren’t warm, you won’t be happy.
We’ve focused on those toes, and have five snow boot suggestions to keep them warm – and fashionable – throughout the long winter.
