Up until now, myself and dc have always made do with wellies but have decided to treat ourselves to some snow boots. Loads of choice for kids but apart from the really expensive lovely north face ones I've seen for myself, Im not sure if the shell type fabric ones are a bit 'old lady' ish. I have seen a few pairs that I like but am unsure if they are going to put 20 years on me!
Do you wear snow boots and if so, any recommendations would be appreciated.

Yes, Timberland Earth Keepers. They're waterproof and very warm. Love them.

I have Merrell Oslos, they're lovely. They're half price at Field & Trek atm.

MegBusset Wed 23-Jan-13 18:14:21

Here - only a few sizes left though

I have Rubber Duck snow joggers. I had and lost Romika snow boots which were brilliant.

I've got merrell puffins. They're comfy and warm.

I have Khombu boots. Very warm and cosy.

TK Maxx had loads of snow boots at start of winter but think they are gone now. Maybe wait until next year.

I have these

yes to snow boots, i get chillblains so can't do with wellies in the snow. mine are kids ones (i have small feet) from lands end outlet shop, also had a sale on so they only cost me £9.

I have Sorrell boots. I've had them since 1994 and they're wonderful!

LynetteScavo Wed 23-Jan-13 18:37:42

No, I insist my DC own some, but then prance around in wellies myself. I have suffered very cold toes this week.

I shall be investing.

LPplusOne Wed 23-Jan-13 18:37:56

Sorrell all the way here, too. They're the best!

amothersplaceisinthewrong Wed 23-Jan-13 18:38:18

Yes, I have a pair, no particular make, but so warm and comforable. i don't care if they add 20 years to me!

MegBusset Wed 23-Jan-13 18:40:51

I bought some Sorel Joan Of Arctics but wasn't too impressed tbh - they were very bulky and took forever to take on and off. In fact I must get round to eBaying them.

I have some leather Merrell ones. Expensive at the time and I did wonder if it would be worth it but 4 winters in they're fantastic. Fur lined do incredibly cosy, and because they're leather they don't look ridiculous when it's not snowing so I wear them on any cold day and have cosy feet.

evertonmint Wed 23-Jan-13 18:45:17

Ah quick google confirms they're Merrell Oslo as mentioned by others smile

I have these - Timberland Earthkeepers Mount Holly Tall Lace Duck Boot

GrimmaTheNome Wed 23-Jan-13 18:48:14

I got some from Trespass when it was really cold and icy a couple of years back (didn't everyone?) but they have nothing to do with Style&Beauty grin
Dunno if they look 'old ladyish' but they help me behave like a big kid in snow.

If the paths are salted, I want something that will wash not stain.

JaxTellerIsMyFriend Wed 23-Jan-13 18:48:42

I have these, they are brilliant, warm, dry and not expensive Raw Terrain

I paid £30 ish for mine iirc. DS has a pair of Junior ones and DD has posh pink ones that my mum bought for her.

fitflop blizzard boots, brillo if you have bad balance as I do. You can get them in the sale now (google for 60, half price) or the shearling ones wh I have for a bit more.

Tip - take the laces off so they look like average boots/you don't look like a dick when it stops snowing.

GwendolineMaryLacey Wed 23-Jan-13 18:51:41

Karrimor Snowfur here. Really warm and comfy.

Corygal Wed 23-Jan-13 18:51:49

Oooh! Superblizz shearling ones are 70 quid online, slashed from 175.

I've got a pair from Lands End that I've had for about 5 years, so cosy although I use hillwalking boots with walking poles in serious snow.
