Cold feet

This is the view from my desk a couple of days back and even if there was no snow left today and very sunny, it was freezing cold outside and after 10 min (!!) in the park with Alexis, I realised I had to go back home since my feet was about to turn to ice. Such a boring mother, Alexis was so disappointed!
So ... my wonderful expert readers, once agin I need the advice from you all and hopefully we can all help each other to keep us warm this winter.

What do you have on your feet that is super warm during the winter period?

I went directly and tried out a pair of UGG's. I bought my first and only pair 2002 when they hit the world and became popular and ever since I've sworn to not buy them again since every teenager also wear them all around the globe. But seriously, they are dead comfortable, easy to put on, warm ... I tried the longer version in black suede and they are actually pretty okay if we're talking about the aesthetic point of view. M think I should get Sorel or Moon Boots since he is sick and tired of me always being cold, but I mean you need to be able to wear them to my city life also and Sorel and Moon Boot is too much the Alps and skiing. Or?

What's your thought and advice, I'm eager to find out and I think we all are eager to hear one anothers view in this!

Merci!

    2. Stina,

      I have to agree with Ann-Cathrine! I love my UGG boots, and have been wearing them for years even if they look horrible.

      I have the UGG Adriondack II, which is lower than the tall ones. I love mine and I love wearing them. They are not as much work to put on as the tall ones, you should check them out! And also, they do not get soaked ut with water as many other of UGG can if you wear them in "sørpe" weather. I also have just bought Classic mini from UGG, which I also love because they are so easy to take on and so warm.

      Greetings,

  2. Dear Stina!

    I have heard that UGG boots soak up with water/snow pretty quickly and then you have a swimming pool in your shoes. I guess not that thing you want..
    I live in Norway and wear so far leather boots, that leave enough space for your toes and feet. If you wear too tight shoes, you get cold easily. I guess Moon Boots are not too bad, in Norway everyone wears Sorel, although I didn't quite managed to get them for myself... Also, a lot wear those danish duck boots. Neither the chicest option... So I would go for rather rough looking leather boots :)
    What did you wear in Stockholm? Swedish peepz are also experts when it comes to warm clothing!

    Greetings,
    Baya

  3. Stina I bought the Hugg with the "paillettes" in black.... It's funny and almost nice even heavy shoes...
    I tried many many of these horrible big ones but I also bought very long ones in beige with fur inside.
    Another style with beige/brown and even all in black why not. I hate the moon boots... It's really Swiss German... No style.i found one paar in olive green at Celine.

  4. Sorry to M..... But tastes of men and women are quite different!
    The long Huggs are not bad at all, with your slim, long pullover and ... Fur coat....
    I wear them like this! Sorry for all readers against fur!

  5. Lyssna på vad M säger i detta fall! :) Han har rätt, varma och bekväma. UGG? Nej uugh:) blir blöta och inte så lekvänliga på så vis. Bally kängor är också varma men det vet du redan. Och glöm inte strumpor av ull, cashmere, ylle, allt vad bomull och polyester heter går bort. Och mössan såklart. Vad roligt med flytten till huset! Spännande att få veta mer... Kram, Åsa

  6. I have the Givenchy riding rain boost in black which look fantastic, since I like the ''Equestrian-style''. Bought them a size larger so I can put warm socks.

    I´m wearing Ugg´s around the house and my husband was laughing out loud when we went for a stroll in the city on Saturday, many woman were wearing their Ugg´s and he was like "they´re wearing slippers" ;)

    M might be right with Moon Boots, they must be really warm and I bought some for my 5 year old, but since a friend (who is living in Hamburg) told me all the prostitutes on the Reeperbahn are wearing them in winter I´m over it, haha ;) lol
    I´m more a Marant girl, they´re leather and shearling so perfect for playground.

    Let us know what you got, xoxo Doro

  8. Rain boots are not warm enough....
    It's for snow! In Athens, cold may be but not snow!

  9. Don't get Sorel boots, they keep you warm but are such a pain to put on. I have a pair of boots from Panama Jack ( https://www.panamajackshop.com/uk/en/woman/footwear/warm-boots/bambina-b11 ), they are great - warm, easy to put on, waterproof and they are great on ice and snow (no slipping and dry feet even in deep snow). They're not the most beautiful but are the best, least ugly option I have found.

    I'm not sure where they sell them in Zürich or Stockholm, I bought mine in Megeve last year.

  10. Hej! Du borde köpa curlingkängor. Super sköna och super varma plus att dom är lite snyggare än UGG tycker jag. Hade UGG innan och tycker också att dom är så himla hala, vilket curlingskorna inte är :) lycka till! /Sara

    1. I already have Bally's "curling boots" but they are actually not warm enough and they are so short, I'd like something that goes up on the legs!

  11. I also have Uggs in brown (what a surprise;). During those cold days it has to be very comfy for me!I´m also wearing mine inside (i just have one pair which i only wear inside…)
    I bought those lovely Stella boots http://www.mytheresa.com/en-de/harper-faux-suede-boots.html but i really have to say, that every boot looks like from Ugg!!!
    There is another type which a friend of mine is thinking about, nice leather and fur and a little bit sophisticated….kind of....http://www.mytheresa.com/en-de/camelot-high-flat-boots.html
    I just copied in the link in my comment!Maybe one of those is suitable for one of you;)

  12. Hi Stina, my feet get cold very easily and then everything is ruined and I have to go home, yet I love to be outside, so my solution is La Canadienne tall shearling boots, these ones:
    http://www.lacanadienneshoes.com/boots/tami-black-shearling.html
    The sole is sturdy so the damp does not permeate and they are so warm yet not sloppy looking. They now come in the black, I have the gray and the brown from years past but I think I'll order the black as well since the winter is already here in Canada and it is VERY COLD!!
    Good luck with your choice!

  14. Kolla in Bally igen. Jag såg höga modeller av typ Curling på NK härom sistens. Enligt rykten går curling varianterna "bara" att få tag i i Sverige. De är svenskarna som gillar dem och säljs inte i andra länder. Sant eller ej?!?!

  17. Try Lacoste boots, Perron model. Stylish and warm as moon boots, but so much appropriate for city life.

  18. Curling boots eller UGGs Adrianrack (har aldrig frusit i dom skorna och då har jag haft dom vid -15c!). UGGs Adrionrack tycker jag passar på stan såväl på fjället. Lycka till i din jakt, att frysa om fötterna är inte kul...

  22. My warmest boots are from Prada, they don't really look warm but the rubber sole is so good and with Icebreaker socks they're as good as my moon boots - which btw are from Moncler and more elegant and discrete than Tecnica moon boots. Only problem with the Prada boots is that I have to dry them to avoid white (salt?) stains.

  23. I like my Uggs for driving around - they are good for dropping off children but definitely no good in any kind of moisture. Can't wait to see what you get.

  24. I have always use leather boots, any with water resistant proof . So do my daughters. My thing to not freeze my feet is that I buy half size too big boots for winter and use good woolen socks inside the boots always when it's cold. I make my woolen socks by myself with very good and thin wool yarn but at least here in Berlin you can buy woolen ones from department stores too.

  25. I have Sorel. I live in Norway and you how it is here :)

  26. How about Bally curling boots? As a Swede you must be familiar with them, they are so popular there. There are other models of them as well, not just the basic ones. The shearling inner is warm and the thick raw rubber so isolates the cold coming from the ground. And they are acceptable in the city as well, not just playgrounds etc.

  27. Dear Stina, I wear my Timberland Earthkeepers boots when it is freezing outside. They are extremely warm, comfortable and waterproof. They aren't subtle in style but because their colour is taupe and brown I think they look more feminine and stylish (as much as practical winter boots can look stylish!) than other boots I have seen.

  31. i was suprised to find out how comfortable and warm gore-tex boots may be! now that i go out with kids in any weather, they are the greatest solution for me (i've got ecco and somthing similar to http://www.gore-tex.com/product/ara-brianna-boot/1354659837684/). i was suprised to find out that boots dont have to be expensive - but thick sole is a bottomline, so i gave up all my fashion shoes for winter!

  32. Hello Stina,

    You really have wonderfull wiew. I recommend you to look for Arche shoes(french company, natural latex rubber sole shoemaker), their model Arte is really simple and comfortable and stylish! And lambwoolmix inside! Perfection.

  33. As a Canadian-I am telling you to get Sorel-you can find some stylish ones. They are the warmest boots you will ever wear and they are also waterproof. I currently live in California and everyone wears Uggs with skirts and shorts-it is the dumbest look ever.

  34. Oh my Stina you receivef so
    Many advices that sure you will choose your boots by yourself!
    It's true that the view of old houses are very nice in front of your office.
    Good luck with your boots but as they are in each shoes stores you will find yours!!

  35. Hi Stine - first of all, I looove your blog. You are such a inspiration to me :) I also call a couple pairs of UGGs my own, however for long winter walks they are not ideal. Yesterday I bought the SIBERIA LITE HYDROMAX from ecco on zalando.

  36. Jag köpte Sorel-kängor förra vintern och det var nog mitt bästa vinterköp! Så skönt att ha torra fötter och slippa frysa. Perfekt för promenader, på väg till jobbet och liknande - och sen är det bara att ta med sig en finare sko när man ska vara fin. :)

  37. In Australia only 'boguns' wear uggs out. Mostly they are worn in the home. I just bought my first pair and I am middle aged. I would not be seen in them outside the house! They are warm though. What about really good socks - I find they do the job if boots are waterproof.

  40. Sorel, definitely. There are a number of high boot styles that are suitable for the city, very warm and much better looking than Uggs (which I agree are so ugly, don't care how comfortable they are). Or you could combine Sorel and moon boots and get a Sorel moon boot style - http://www.sorel.com/womens-snowlion-boot-NL1082.html - these are very warm in even terrible snow and last forever.

  42. Chanel got pretty boots every year in winter (in black and cognac) - they look a little bit like UGGs but are more fashionable and prettier :) That's how the look like: http://stylescientist.blogspot.co.at/2010/01/which-came-first-chanel-or-uggs.htm
    I wear mine since many years and love them!

  43. Dear Stina, that depends on where you are going to live. Sorel ist perfect for Goldküste (I can really imagine you living there, by the way - nowhere else in German Switzerland besides Zürichberg or similar areas of Zürich).
    Ugg has also warm normal leather boots, I think they are ok, but I haven't tried them.
    Moon Boots for Alps, as you say.

  45. hej Stina,

    Jag var helt emot Sorel men köpte mig ett par i Geneve i lördags. De har massor av eleganta modeller, mycket skönare. bättre att ga i och framförallt är de varma och man kan ga i snö. Uggs är mysiga men ser lätt slitna ut och som du säger, alla har dem nu för tiden.

  49. Hi Stina,

    I can feel cold even in the summer, I always keep a blanket on the sofa. :) For a really cold weather outside :) , I just bought a pair of really warm, Finnish leather boots with padding on the inside like on www.topman.fi . They may not look like a hip fashion item, but they do keep my feet dry and warm. I wear them with long, thick tights and woollen socks that our old granny knitted from really thick yarn.

    And I also believe in layers. Layering thin, breathable fabric close to the skin and then maybe even 2 shirts on top, and a warm scarf and a nice, fluffy jacket. I keep warm, and still don't look like a Michelin woman.

    Here in Finland, some kids wear thin sneakers and keep their jackets open, even in +2 or -5. I walk on by with my woollen hat and thick mittens and extra pair of socks...Making my granny proud. :)

    With hugs.

  55. Fur technica boots (I wear my mums from the 80s & they still look awesome)
    You can buy lots of different models - warm, non slip and totally dry in wet / snowy conditions.
    They are v unique too, not many people wear them.. And they are too hot for London still :(
