The Best All-Weather Rain And Snow Boots For Winter 2015 – 2016

When you buy a pair of all-weather boots, you obviously want them to be waterproof first and foremost because you need them to protect your feet from the rain and snow during the cold winter months.

However you also want them to be comfortable to wear so that you can walk around in them as much as you like, and if you are like a lot of women, you will want them to look pretty stylish as well.

So taking all of these factors into consideration, I have compiled a selection of the best all-weather rain and snow boots that are available this winter (2015 – 2016).

My Top Picks

There are two boots in particular that really stand out. The first one is the Timberland Glancy Lace Up Boot, which has a real sense of style that we have come to expect from the Timberland brand.

This premium full-grain leather boot has 3-inch heels and comfortable rubber soles, and is available in four beautiful color combinations:

Another one that I really like is the Sperry Top-Sider Saltwater Rain Boot, which first went on sale last year if I remember correctly.

This duck-style rain boot is said to be completely waterproof and extremely comfortable to wear, and is actually available in twelve different color combinations.

My two favorite color combos are pictured below, but you can view all of the colors that are available by visiting the product page.

2 Warm Sweaters Under $20 For Winter 2015

It’s that time of the year again when of us begin to dig out all of our favorite winter sweaters and start shopping around for a few new ones.

So with that in mind, I thought I would let you know about two great-looking winter sweaters that I have recently found on the OASAP website.

These sweaters are both available for less than $20 each, and are sure to offer plenty of warmth over the coming months. Plus because they have a slightly festive design, they would both be ideal to wear over the Christmas holidays.

The first one is the Loose Geo Floral Knit Sweater, which is available in either blue or red and is a beautiful combination of geo and floral print:

The second one that I want to mention is the Southwestern Drop-Sleeves Sweater, which also has a pretty combination of patterns and colors, and is available in two different colors (blue and ivory):

If you click on one of the links above and visit the respective product pages, you can see some more photos of each one (including a few customer photos), and can pick up a few style ideas regarding what you can wear with these sweaters.

I personally think that they would both look great with a pair of blue jeans and some brown or black ankle boots, but I’m sure there are many different ways you could wear one of these sweaters.

10 Knee-High Boots From Clarks That Are New For Fall / Winter 2015 / 2016

This time last year I looked at some of the top knee-high boots that were available from Clarks, one of the leading footwear manufacturers (here is the article in case you missed it).

So in this article I thought it would be a good idea to write a follow-up article that takes a look at some of the new boots that have gone on sale since then.

I have to say that the Clarks Mullin Spice Knee-High Boot is still my personal favorite out of all the Clarks boots, but nevertheless there are still some really attractive boots to choose from this winter. Here are some of my favorites:

Clarks Pita Dakota Western Boot

One of my favorite boots from the new 2015 collection is the Pita Dakota Western Boot, which is available in black or dark brown and is made from full grain leather and PU leather.

This is quite a simple design, but it still manages to look effortlessly stylish. Plus it appears to be really comfortable to wear because it has an Orthalite sheet insole with a synthetic sockliner that provides plenty of cushioning for your feet.

This Clarks Pita Dakota Western Boot is available in a number of sizes between 5 and 11 and will fit most women because it has a boot opening of approximately 14.75 inches.

Clarks Hopedale Wish Western Boot

Another really cool western boot that you might want to consider buying is the Hopedale Wish Western Boot.

This is available in black or dark brown (which is my own personal favorite), and the reason why I love this particular boot is because it’s a little bit different to all the others.

The unique reptile-print shaft really makes it stand out and I just love the shape of this boot and the overall design.

If you would like to buy this stylish leather boot, you should bear in mind that it is more suitable for people with slim calves because it has a boot opening of around 14 inches.

Clarks Lucette Ritz Boot

Clarks Women's Lucette Ritz BootIf you are someone who has slightly wider calves, you might want to check out the new Lucette Ritz Boot because this has a boot opening of 17 inches and is absolutely gorgeous.

This black knee-high boot (pictured right) is made from a combination of waterproof suede, synthetic and full grain leather and has a really cool contrast design.

It is designed to be as comfortable as possible because it has an Orthalite sheet insole and a synthetic sockliner, and offers support around the heel.

So this wide-calf dual-texture boot is the perfect combination of style and comfort, and should be strong enough and durable enough to survive several winters because Clarks are renowned for making good quality boots.

Clarks Pita Topeka Riding Boot

One more boot that I want to bring to your attention is the Pita Topeka Riding Boot because this is a really cool two-tone design.

As you can see from the images below, this boot is available in black or brown and has a contrasting collar that really makes it stand out.

I personally prefer the black boot out of the two, but I think both are them are pretty stylish, and as with many of the other Clarks boots, they should be very comfortable to wear because of the synthetic lining and heel support.

This boot is available in a range of sizes between 5 and 12 and has a boot opening of 15.25 inches. Therefore it is sure to appeal to lots of women this season.
