So, it’s full-on freezing temps here in Chicago and I’m serious about staying snug.  Been doing some real research on fashion’s latest take on foot warmth:  the hiking boot.  “What’s so new about those old uglies?” You ask.  Perhaps, like me, you’ve been stashing that pair you bought 20 years ago for that one hike you did, on the off-chance you’d, like, hike again. Well, NEWs flash, mom, as with all things 90’s, your boots are back, but in weird and wild ways!  No actual hiking required. 

Don’t believe me?  Here’s proof:

Can’t find the old standby’s?  Here’s a selection of NEW ones you should consider:

Afraid of taking these beyond the trailhead?   

“I will fill you in on something I discovered.... Hiking.. is walking.”**

And don’t pretend like the schlepp isn’t a slog. 

Me?  Sure I got mine, but I’m throwing it WAY back with an offer on these 

and a listen to this.  

New bootie rockin’ all winter long.  

 

Have a great week, mom.
