This post is dedicated to Women all over the world who can’t understand the booty or shootie trend. Whether you despise looks due to cAnkles or a general mistrust of a boot that can’t cover any pART of your leg, this is the one for you. I’ve rounded up seven of my favorite stylish-yet-comfortable boots, all with high comfort scores in customer reviews.
1.Timberland Charles StreetTall Boot: WATERPROOF Leather and a rubber cleated sole make it possible to look great without slipping or tripping on your way to work this winter. $159.95 at OnlineShoes.com, free shipping and exchanges.
2.Soft MelaSuede Slouch Boot: If you thought slouch boots were a thing of the past, or more accurately the 80s, take a look at this photo. Do you think you could pull it off? I think so. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: Nothing beats the Sofft insole for toe-to-heel comfort. Available in sizes 6-12 at OnlineShoes.com for $151.95.
3.Soft Tyla: You can’t quite see this feature in the photo, but it has laces all the way up the back, which makes this boot, for lack of a better word… WARM. The heel may seem impossibly high (3 1/2″), but there is a 1/2″ platform to offset the height a bit. You can read the glowing reviews for yourself at OnlineShoes.com, $169.95. Also on sale at Shoebuy for $135.95, free shipping and returns. Nordstrom carries the Sofft Tyla II which has a wide shaft for wider calves.
4.Divine Naot:It’s not a cheap boot, but Naot excels in comfort technology, so it’s worth it. The cork and latex footbed molds to your foot and provides excellent arch support. $294.95 at Shoemall, free shipping.
5.Tall classic Ugg: Over 500 five-star reviews on Zappos. If you suffer from Raynaud’s or just have chronically cold feet in the winter, there’s nothing like Ugg shearling boots – soft, comfortable and oh-so-warm. $164 at Zappos, free shipping both ways.
6.Merrell Spire Peak WATERPROOF: I am a big believer in Merrell’s Q-form™ alignMent system. The insole prevents the feet from pronating and aligns the feet, knees and hips when walking. Waterproof Leather and a PolARTec® lining make this a great winter boot. $154.95 at OnlineShoes.com.
7.Born KhakiFlat Boot: With a heel that’s barely an inch tall and a generously padded insole, the Born Persimmon gets my vote for the best comfortable flat boot. It comes in a very nice charcoal nubuck too. $159 at Shoeline.com, free shipping.
