After the polar vortex unleashed the harshest cold in years in the midwestern United States, many guys started to perform extra steps to stay warm outside, for example adding more layers or switch to a better material that can withstand the extreme weather conditions. Although you can wear many layers from your feet up, you can only have one layer to protect your feet and that’s why it is crucial to pick the right winter boots during the entire Winter.
How to Choose The Right Boots?
Let’s get started.
REALIZE THE DRESS CODE
If you are required to wear a formal suit at your working place, Chukka boots could be your last choice to pick as its thicker soles and rougher stitching make them only suitable for casual wear.
Generally, cap toes are widely recommended to be the go-to business shoes.
UNDERSTAND THE CLIMATE
If you are living in the area that is currently snowing, avoid wearing any leather made boots as dealing with salt stain can be quite tricky if you don’t know how to properly ward that sodium chloride off. That salt can degrade and stain your leather boots forever, so the threat is not a joke.
REMEMBER THE SIZE
Seriously this is not a joke. Many people often purchased the wrong shoe size, especially when they are confused with the size chart table. Always remember your shoe size in both US and EU sizes. If you are not sure, check the conversion chart below.
After all, it all depends on your budget.
But you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to own a pair of tip-top quality winter boots. Check out this article – 10 Men’s Fall Boots under $200.
