Meet my new winter boots. While I haven’t purchased them yet, I intend to as soon as possible. They’re the perfect blend of style and function—sort of a hybrid of rugged Sorels and trendy Uggs. I’ve been searching for the perfect pair of boots for some time now. Specifically, something that I can tromp around and shovel snow in, but just as easily wear to work and pair with my long, wool black coat for a more sophisticated look. I’d say these Merrels succeed in meeting both requirements equally. I found the boots in the latest Title Nine catalog.
As a side note, I will never wear Uggs. I will always remember my brother telling me a few years ago, “Don’t be one of those girls.” That’s stuck with me, and I just can’t do it. To this day, I remain Ugg-free and proud.
