ALL Weather Boots
By Ella Pashman
As someone whose winter shoe attire has consisted of Birkenstocks and fun socks, I knew coming to college on the east coast meant I needed to get real about shoes for winter. With literally a million different styles and brands, I know I was lost about what shoes would help me survive the weather. I’ve noticed from looking at everyone’s shoes here, some of you guys are clearly pretty clueless about it too. As for rain or snow boots, one of the most popular styles on campus, and for the east coast is the duck boot. Whether it's the Sperry or the Bean boot, either will keep you warm and have you looking like everyone’s favorite college frat boy in winter mode. Another popular option is the favorite of every New York native: Tims, because why not walk around campus dressed like a construction worker since our campus is basically a 24/7 construction war zone anyway. Of course, I can’t forget UGGs, the choice footwear of 2010 that never seems to go away, like seriously, can we please just all agree that UGGs are not a cute look anymore? Even though I honestly still don’t understand real weather, like seriously why is it SO COLD???, I do understand rain and how to dress for it. My personal favorite is Hunter rain boots, which I am guilty of owning two pairs of… With short, tall, or ankle height styles and a ton of different colors, Hunter makes it so easy to actually find cute rain boots, aka ones that don’t make you look like someone working on a fishing boat. Regardless of what kind of rain boots are your speed, just please don’t be that one person stuck wearing soaking wet sneakers in a downpour.
