Searching for mens boots?
It can be a little intimidating since there is so much competition among manufacturers.
You’ll want to consider the purpose for your boots. For example, are you looking for winter boots that keep snow out? Do you need boots that will protect your feet against brutal weather, where temperatures can plunge to -30, -40 degrees, or even lower?
Are you looking for boots that have excellent tread for snow travel, or do you need boots that are stylish for sitting around the fire at the ski lodge?
Whether you’re interested in mens boots for hunting, snowmobiling or just for around town during the cold months, you can find a wide variety of winter footwear to choose from these days.
Most men tend to select winter boots for function (you know, do they keep snow out, do they keep your feet warm, that kind of thing).
For the wife or girlfriend who wants to find a nice compromise between both function and style, consider Sorel, Timberland, North Face, Columbia and L.L. Bean.
The best way to get a good idea of the boots currently available is to start your search online. Take a look at pictures, reviews, prices, availability.
Narrow your search down to three or four choices, then check for local stores where you can try them on. Many men like their boots to have a little room in the toe and heel, since they will most likely be wearing wool or other heavy winter socks.
After all, if you’re a man, fit is most likely your determining factor – if your winter boots don’t fit, you probably won’t wear them!
Once you have your choice made, you might consider looking at Amazon or eBay. Check, too for the large sporting good stores like Cabela’s.
Mens winter boots styles and features change, and these retailers will often close out the current or most recent years’ models in order to make room for the newest versions.
