Winter Boots for Dressing Professionally

Nov 19th 2019

Stay warm on the coldest days while still looking stylish and appropriate at the office in versatile styles from Valdini and La Canadienne.

The fall and winter seasons mean two things for your wardrobe: layers and rugged footwear. While we can easily shed our extra clothing in a well-heated office, bringing a separate pair of shoes for commuting in the cold weather can be cumbersome. Our solution is to choose winter boots that multitask. Read on for the top winter boots for tackling the season professionally and in style.

Handmade in Canada, La Canadienne boots for women offer waterproof protection for trudging through the snow. The Tess bootie is assembled with an Italian suede upper lined in breathable microfiber suitable for indoor or outside. A front zipper provides easy on and off wear, and the collar can be worn rolled up or down depending on your mood. Memory foam cushioning and a flatform rubber sole deliver a natural sense of flexibility. Tiana is a women’s ankle boot designed with a sleek, minimalist profile. Its black suede upper carries cozy faux fur lining for added warmth and ventilation, a central zipper, and leather reinforcements. It also includes a supportive memory foam insole that molds to the foot for a custom feel every time. Deep tread on the rubber outsole supplies controlled grip on slick surfaces. The Salem bootie is a weatherized update of a classic Chelsea boot. Crafted from water-resistant suede, it comes styled with goring on the sides, a rear pull tab, and an easy-on zip closure. The boot is fitted with a block heel and durable rubber outsole.

Valdini women’s winter boots are manufactured with advanced technology that supplies waterproof protection and stain resistance. Bety and Blink are over-the-knee boots with uppers cut from black suede. While the Blink has a pull-on style, Bety equips a side zipper. Low block heels and rubber outsoles grant a surefooted step and stylish height. Valdini’s Kiki and Kim ankle boots put a fashion-forward spin on outdoors style. They each share cozy shearling interiors that keep the foot warm in low temperatures. Platforms with brown welting and block heels add a sophisticated touch. Kim flaunts two silver-tone buckles and a medial zipper. Kiki has striped, hiking-inspired laces threaded through rectangular eyelets

Winter sartorialism is easy at the office with seasonal women’s styles from La Canadienne and Valdini. Pair Valdini’s Bety or Blink with a turtleneck top layered underneath a maxi-length smock dress belted at the waist. Team the Kiki or Kim with a chunky knit sweater and cigarette pants. Opt for the Salem boot with a patterned blanket coat and pencil-leg trousers. Stay warm in the La Canadienne Tiana and Tess booties with a shirt dress, boxy herringbone jacket, and ponté knit pants.
