Shopping for the fall and winter seasons is one of the most crucial times of the year. Choosing your winter footwear is the most important decision you’ll make as there are many factors that you must take into account. Traction to prevent slips and falls on ice, fabrics that keep your feet dry, and durable outsoles constructed out of long-lasting materials that last from year to year are just a few. For over six decades, Ara has checked off all of these boxes. Their styles developed using Gore-Tex innovation is ideal for any weather condition. The technology is permanently water and windproof and breathable. The open-cell membrane is specially engineered to provide comfort and dryness by offering optimum heat transfer and moisture management, creating the perfect climate for your feet. This season we’re excited to introduce four Gore-Tex styles that are sure to become your newest, trusted cold-weather staples.
Gaby is a chic ankle boot that features a block heel, minimalist upper with tonal seams, a convenient side zipper, and a silver-tone logo accent at the shaft to punctuate the look. The feminine Luella boot is elevated by a contrasted wedge heel and curvy seams. Page is simple with a square toe, textured wedge heel, a paneled upper, and a saw-edge sole for excellent traction. Luella’s sister shoe, the Lela, is a cute slip-on with a platform, crisscrossing seams, and a treaded outsole. Its new price of $189.90 makes it an affordable must-have for running quick errands while still reaping the benefit of the collection’s waterproof technology on a wet day. With styles priced between $190-240, the must-have Gore-Tex range from Ara are affordable choices for your winter wardrobe.
The Ara brand is committed to bringing you style and function, which makes these new winter boots and shoes easy to adapt to the season’s best trends. Page looks great with your favorite pair of skinny jeans, an oversized teddy bear coat, an infinity scarf, and a light sweater. Layering is not only necessary as the temperatures drop, it’s how you can get the most out of pieces you may have ditched from the spring. Pull on a crewneck sweatshirt over a turtleneck sweater, slip into a pleated wool skirt, and complete the look with Gaby. Luella looks smart with a shawl coat, puffer vest, and leggings. For slightly warmer days, we love Lela with cropped bottoms, a fleece jacket, and an embellished top. With the undeniable stylishness found in Ara’s Gore-Tex collection, you won’t have any trouble expressing yourself all season long.
