Getting The Boot

Fur for all

By Carroll Ivy Laurence |

Fashion trumps function almost every time. But once in a while we find a trend that covers all the bases. We all want that extra edge that everyone is looking for in their wardrobe, and there’s no better way to accessorize than with a fabulous pair of boots.

The fur Regina boot is a great blend of function and beauty. The cowhide outer boot is resistant to salt, sand, and the worst winter can throw at you. The boots” insulation and thick soles will keep your feet warm and dry après ski. Fur is chic, cozy, and everywhere this winter.

Traditional styles still abound as seen in the tall brown Vince Camuto boot. “I am loving classic silhouettes in boots this winter with a twist of new style, whether it’s in a fabulous buckle or gorgeous trim. You just can’t go wrong with a comfortable and stylish pair of boots, they’re timeless,” says boutique owner Ashley Austin.

A fixture in British culture, Hunter, the famous maker of the Wellington boot, is branching out. In addition to the rainbow of Original Tall Boots, spotted all over the streets of New York on rainy days, they have a plethora of new boot offerings, such as their Regent line. And the suede knee-high black Zipkin boot from Stuart Weisman is an updated classic straight from the runway.

Cowboy boots are back in style, too. Frye boots have been classics for decades, as appropriate on city streets as they are on country roads. This on-trend footwear is sure to kick-start your wardrobe this winter.
