When the cold weather of fall and winter comes around, you want to make sure that you and your family are ready.

Here are a few tips and tricks on how to pick out the best fall boots and winter boots as well as a few common questions answered.
What Boots Should I Wear in Fall?
Since the weather is still relatively mild in the fall, you have a lot of options when it comes to boot styles. You don’t need the extra warmth of winter boots, but your feet won’t overheat in footwear with a little extra insulation either. With so many options, how do you decide what fall boots to wear? Luckily, womens casual fall boots are easy to style with just about everything. For ladies, try matching a long, cozy sweater with leggings, fall knee high boots, and maybe even a scarf if you’re looking for a little extra flair. You can swap out your casual fall boots for a pair of fall dress boots and throw on some jewelry to turn this comfy outfit into something more formal. For the guys, try wearing your mens fall boots with your favorite pair of jeans and a warm flannel shacket. If the weather is still slightly summery, wear a graphic tee under your flannel for a layered look that can adjust to fit the temperature. You can also dress up the kids in super cute outfits to match their cute fall boots. Get everyone dressed up and take some family photos out in the gorgeous fall colors!
What Boots Should I Wear in Winter?
When winter rolls around, you need to make sure you have the right winter boots ready. You don’t want to be caught out in the cold and snow with the wrong shoes, so make sure you get your womens winter boots during the fall before the blizzards hit. Womens tall winter boots and knee high winter boots are a great choice during this season, especially for formal events where you would wear a dress with tights and leggings, because the tough upper fabric will protect your legs from the cold wind. For extra warmth, look for fur winter boots that are designed to keep heat in and feet comfortable. When looking for kids winter boots, look for waterproof and water-resistant styles; you never know when your little ones will want to run off and play in the snow! If you don’t have a lot of snow where you live, make sure that the kids get cold weather boots that will keep their feet warm during recess while also being durable enough to stand up to everyday play.
Are Winter Boots the Same as Snow Boots?
Winter boots and snow boots, though used interchangeably, aren’t actually the same thing. They’re both designed for the winter wear, but only snow boots are equipped with the water resistance or waterproofing to stand up to trudging through several inches of snow on a daily basis. When you shop winter boots, make sure you’ve got an idea of where you or the other members of your family are going to be wearing them. Kids that will be making snow forts in the school yard during recess will need waterproof winter boots so that they don’t have wet feet for the rest of their day. You, on the other hand, might choose women’s winter boots without the extra bulk of waterproofing since you’ll be wearing them to the office and out on errands during the winter, where the sidewalks will likely be shoveled. If you aren’t sure of what you need, try a duck boot or something similar, which features waterproof rubber on the bottom part of the upper and regular fabric or leather above it.
Do You Need Snow Boots for Winter?
Whether or not you need snow boots depends on where you live and how much snow you get over the winter season. If you don’t see a lot of snow, you’ll probably be fine with a pair of insulated winter or fall boots, since your feet will, for the most part, only need to be protected from the cold. Most winter boots will be able to provide both the warmth you need and some waterproofing in case you run into some wet weather. Snow boots are designed to keep the cold and moisture of several inches of snow out, so they tend to be a little bulkier than other fall and winter boots and aren’t as everyday-wear friendly. Another factor to consider is the area that you live in. If you spend most of your time in a big city with streets that are usually plowed and shoveled by the time you go out and about, you are probably safe with regular women’s winter boots.
