Does your guy need a new pair of men’s snow boots?


Share post:

This is probably going to be another year that I won’t be able to afford to do any holiday gift shopping. But that doesn’t mean I can’t still have a little fun virtual window shopping for gifts for the people in my life. In my previous post “Shopping for men’s jackets and coats?” I mentioned that my guy wants a leather jacket. I’d love to buy him a leather jacket, even though I personally think he needs something a little more practical and suited to his lifestyle. But the jackets I would like to buy are way too expensive. Even so I have a leather jacket on the list of possibilities for holiday presents. I also have men’s snow boots on the list and have been looking through Nordstrom’s collection of Rain & Snow Boots to find a pair for him.

UGG Australia Worchester Butte Waterproof leather boot

I like these but he probably wouldn’t. Then again you think you know what someone will and will not like and they surprise you. But I have a feeling he wouldn’t love the overlapping fur. He might not mind if there’s fur inside lining the boot, but being able to see it on the outside will probably make these UGG men’s snow boots a no for him.

Waterproof leather boot is designed to handle all the elements, with a rugged Vibram® outsole. The soft, cozy lining is made from genuine shearling or plush UGGpure™, a textile made entirely from wool but crafted to feel and wear like genuine shearling. Either version keeps feet warm and comfortable, whatever the weather.

PRICE: $224.95 Buy It!

These boots are rated 4.7 out of 5 on Nordstrom. At last check 225 people had left a review and 180 of those gave the boots 5 stars out of 5, 35 people gave them 4 stars out of 5, 5 people gave them a 3 out of 5, 2 people gave them a 3 out of 5 and 2 people gave them a 1 out of 5.

The North Face ‘Chilkat II Luxe’ Men’s Snow Boots

These might get a better reception than the UGG Australia Worchester Butte Waterproof leather boots; but he might complain about the red shoe laces. Otherwise I think he’d like these well enough not to pout on opening his gift.

Seller says…

Premium leather elevates a rough-and-tumble snow boot featuring waterproof construction, BLC-compliant leather and 200g of Heatseeker insulation for warmth, durability and comfort.

Helly Hanson ‘Rapide Mid HT’ Waterproof Hiking Boot

I don’t think these would get complaints per se. These are right up his alley. They are listed as hiking boots and so I’m not sure if they’re the same as men’s snow boots; but I figure if the hiking involves trudging through feet of snow in the mountains then they should do just fine on the streets. I guess if he were to have any complaint it would be that it would have been nice if they were black.

Seller says…

Tough Cordura nylon ensures durability in a modern hiking boot built for intrepid adventuring and all-day comfort. A waterproof Helly Tech® Performance membrane keeps you dry, and the HellyWear toe and heel caps protect you from the terrain.

Baffin ‘Evolution’ Snow Boot

Based on the description of these I would probably buy these of all the men’s snow boots I checked out. Because of the amount of walking he does he will need boots that do what these Baffin boots say they do. Matter of fact I might put these at the top of the list. This is going to be our third winter out here in the midwest and he’s been having to navigate the snow and sleet and ice in just sneakers. He probably wouldn’t react with enthusiasm to open a box and find snow boots; but if it snows as much this winter as it did last winter I think he’ll come to realize that the snow boots were a better gift than the leather jacket. Now if I was able to get him both the boots and a nice leather jacket, I probably wouldn’t have to ask his help with the dishes at least for one day.

Seller says…

Rugged Timberwolf™ leather and Diamond-Lite insulated nylon structure a durable polar-proven boot equipped with an eight-layer inner Thermaplush system for superior insulation and an anatomical footbed for long-wearing comfort. An integrated Arctic Flex™ rubber base provides a stable foundation, while proprietary Icepaw™ technology provides exceptional slick-surface traction.

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss.
