Prepare and Enjoy: It’s Time to Think Winter Boots!

Let’s talk about winter boots. We’ve had three massive snowfall winters in a row now – and while the government might not be capable of managing the transport infrastructure so things don’t grind to a halt, you can certainly make a difference of your own this winter. Be Prepared, as the Scouts and Guides used to say, and you won’t even notice when the white stuff starts falling.

One of the most dangerous things about snow is the ice underneath. A pair of decent winter boots give you the grip you need to navigate it. They’ll keep your feet warm enough to feel what’s underneath them too. No more staggering around with lumps of ice attached to your legs, wondering if you’re going to fall over first or just pull a muscle trying to keep your balance.

A winter boot doesn’t have to be a great clumping thing either. Get hold of any Columbia Sportswear boot and you’ll look as good as you feel. From the super funky Powderbug range to the ultra technical Bugaboot, there’s a style for every sport. Columbia even do a range of dressy looking day boots – the Delancy and the EZ DOES IT – that combine neat suede and faux shearing effects with trademarked Omni-Shield water and stain resistance.

Columbia’s winter boots feature non marking Omni-Grip soles for total traction on both wet and dry surfaces, and include a Techlite injection moulded midsole to allow your foot to bend and flex while the sole retains its grip.

Winter’s a long way off yet of course – but it never hurt to start preparing. With styles to suit every look there’s no excuse. Get ready for the snow with a pair of winter boots and you’ll have fun whatever the weather.
