Snow day: the perfect block-heeled, fleece-lined boots for messy weather

You know what it means when these boots make an appearance, dear readers??  It snowed in them there hills!!  😲

It snowed so much, in fact, that most of Vancouver kinda shut down by mid-day on Friday; offices everywhere were letting their staff go home early due to concerns about seriously deteriorating road conditions.  Even got to leave merely two hours into my workday, and my commute is all of seven minutes long…by bus!!

So now I should probably clarify that “a lot” of snow means something a bit different around here than it does to the rest of Canada; we had about 5 inches of the white stuff come down in the course of a few hours, which is just a drop in the bucket compared to the massive dumps that other parts of the Great White North can face during an average winter.  But we’re delicate flowers out on the west coast (tee hee!) where weather extremes are usually moderated by our proximity to the Pacific Ocean…and many people panic as soon as those snowflakes start to stick.

Thankfully, the cold front that I was complaining about last week – and that brought us this white stuff we Vancouverites are always ill-prepared for – started to dissipate by Friday evening; and the combination of warmer temperatures and sunshine meant rapidly melting snow was the issue for much of the weekend.  The resulting slushy sloppy mess this creates is even less pleasant to deal with than the actual snowfall…not to mention the very real risk of flooding.

All of which makes me grateful for these block-heeled, fleece-lined boots that wait all year in my closet for exactly this kind of weather.  I’m not sure if they are technically “waterproof” – but between the durable leather and that thick lug sole, I’ve yet to experience either cold or wet toes while wearing them.  And they’re super-cute outfit-makers, too…so maybe, just maybe, some snow every now and then isn’t such a bad thing after all!!  😉

    Very cute boots and they do look like they could handle all but the toughest deepest snow and water. The heels look sturdy enough to not slip on the ice either (I can’t stand it when fashion bloggers wear delicate looking spike-heeled boots for snow photo shoots. Who are you kidding?)

      I might have dared to wearing stilettos in the snow at one time, dearest Rachel…but ever since I broke my foot four years ago, I’m definitely more cautious about less-than-ideal walking conditions!! 😨
