​Winter Boots for Below-Freezing Temps

Posted by Victoria Lett on Dec 6th 2019

Stay warm and cozy all season long in boots from La Canadienne, Ara, and Valdini.

Valdini designer boots combine revolutionary craftsmanship and elevated design to match the everyday life of the modern, independent woman. The footwear brand’s winter boots are tested in the icy-cold temperatures of its native Canada, ensuring that you get both weather defense and fashion-forward style. Sabra is a calf-high boot composed of black suede treated with a waterproof finish and sheepskin insulation. A central zipper provides easy on and off. Sofia’s knee-high suede shaft features a medial side zipper and warm shearling lining. Both winter boots come with a rubber wedge heel and deep outsole tread pattern to help keep you stable on slippery days. The classic and sophisticated design means you can wear the boots for years to come, without the bulk of your typical winter shoe.

For six decades, Ara has shown commitment to fashion, fit, and quality. Designed to cushion the foot's anatomical structure, their women’s boots are engineered with patented Gore-Tex® technology to increase warmth and moisture-proofing in the winter. The Millie boot is a technical boot constructed with a black nylon and suede upper lined in soft faux fur. Its closure system includes a snap button and zipper on the sides. A lightly cushioned insole, Gore-Tex® membrane and slip-resistant rubber wedge sole work together to promote a comfortable, protected step. Addy winter boots shed water and snow with a Gore-Tex® layer within the nylon upper. Black suede reinforcements add sophistication and a front zipper gets you on the go quickly. The boots rest on top of platform rubber sole units finished with bumper toes and slip-resistant chevron tread patterns.

LA CANADIENNE Hermione Black

Born out of Canada, La Canadienne offers chic and functional waterproof and weather-resistant boots and booties that keep you stylish in wet and cold conditions. Tiana ankle boots are a winterized interpretation of a classic Chelsea boot. Crafted from waterproof suede, they have a front zipper and a leather panel reinforcing the heel. Microfiber lining keeps your feet cozy when it’s especially chilly out. The women’s shoe is finalized by a molded rubber outsole with a wedge heel and rugged tread design for good traction in snow. Hermione is an edgy moto bootie that will get you through the coldest of winter days. Rendered with genuine shearling lining, the ankle boot boasts buckled straps across the vamp and shaft and a convenient side zipper. Waterproof Italian nubuck shapes the upper, and sits atop a sturdy block heel and rubber lug sole that maintains its flexibility.
