I have a dilemma. I need to choose some new shoes for the winter. I have decided I need some warm and cosy boots. They need to be sturdy, after all I am going to have to walk the dog in all weathers. He does not understand the concept of staying in when it is raining, he knows it is time for a walk and jumps all over me. Any boots I choose are going to be splashing though puddles, stomping though mud, wandering though the woods but still have to look smart enough to take me to work. I need something hard wearing that looks good but will survive all I put them though.
I currently have narrowed my choice down to two different pairs but still can’t decide which would be best. I have deliberated for ages but that final decision is eluding me. These are the two pairs I am trying to decide between. First we have a pair of Caterpillar boots, which are oddly named Molten.
These remind me of the boots you see Eskimos wearing in films. I wonder if I can train my dog to pull a sleigh? They definitely look warm and cosy, but even better they have a non slip sole. I hate walking on ice, I always have visions of descending less than elegantly to the floor as my legs give under me. This will surely prevent that. They will go nicely under trousers for work and should survive walks in the park. I already own a pair of Caterpillar boots and they have lasted very well so I have no worries on that score.
The second pair I have my eye on is this pair of Merrell boots called Tremblant Wtpf (not a very catchy name).
These are much more like walking boots but the fur cuff gives them a certain style that I like, These look lovely and sturdy and they have an insulating lining so I know my feet will be lovely and toasty. The problem is I just can’t choose. Which ones do you think I should pick?
