I suffer with chilblains and I need some warm boots. Mainly to wear casually with jeans. I like low heel ankle boots, especially Chelsea boots. My poor toes thank you in advance.

Have a look at leather Uggs. I've got some biker style ones that are waterproof and sheepskin lined so are really warm.

Thank you. Have just looked at those and I'm not keen. Would prefer something a bit less slouchy? Thanks for replying though.

Timberland do Waterproof leather in various styles. I have a pair of reasonably smart brown boots (not their more well known workman type ones). Robust enough for every day / school runs in the rain etc but smart enough to wear with a dress.

ANother vote for Timberland boots as many of these are lined. I have a pair of the pull on ones which are brilliant for wearing with jeans and denim/cord skirts/dresses.

what about those sheepskin lined doc martens

Timberlands might be the way to go. Thank you. Mamia could you please link to the ones you have?

Couldn't find them on the main Timberland site but found these on Amazon:

What about Klara Winter Boots? I am thinking of getting them as my old Merrell Taigas are biting the dust as we speak.

They apparently also have a zip, so you don't have to faff around with lacing up and down.

Lined docs sound amazing - are they comfy?

Not sure what styles are around now but I'm on my 4th year of wearing a pair of Geox boots which are totally waterproof and really warm. They were expensive but worth it.

Timberland nellie are what I have just replaced my worn out leather uggs with. Feel like they will last longer than the 2 yrs my uggs did

Love the Klara boots: I am tempted!

Have you seen Ugg Lavelles....too casual?

I invested in a pair of Blundstones this winter. Waterproof, warm and Chelsea boot looking.

I recommend Timberland also. Been wearing various boots of the same brand for a few years now. They are robust, keep you warm (especially the lined one), have longevity and look great! I'm a size 3, so I fall into the kids category with Timbs. A little limited with styles with this but still manage to find some that I like. I always buy them from Amazon. Much cheaper!

Thanks all! Have ordered the ones in Mamia's link, and the Klaras. Will report back.

skippy67 - how did you find Klaras? I had a a last minute attack of doubt (and empty wallet blush) so haven't purchased them yet.

Didn't like them on my size 8 feet. Lovely lovely boots though.
