winter shoe trends collage

Winter is officially right around the corner. Temperatures are dropping and the zippers on our jackets are going all the way up.  In terms of shoes, this can only mean one thing: the time has come for you to surrender your sandals and forget your flip flops. If the weather outside is frightful, or a bit more delightful, you’ve come to the right place. Because, no matter which coast you call home, there is a winter shoe made just for you. 

East Coast

To our east coast girlies: If you have a hard time seeing the sparkling snow as a dazzling sight, we sympathize completely. We know first hand that trudging through icy slush is far from a  glamorous experience. With that in mind, we’ve gathered three of the trendiest ways to keep your toes toasty without sacrificing style. You’ll be “walking in a winter wonderland” in no time… and looking so chic while doing so. 

Shearling OTK Boots

Over The Knee boots were a must-have this fall and winter will be no different. This season, we’ll see the addition of cozy accents, like a shearling lining, for an extra bit of warmth.

Victorian Lace Up Boots

As temperatures dip, the need for a practical pair of boots rises. Victorian-inspired laces bring a classy addition to an otherwise ordinary boot. 

Shop this style:

OTK Patent Leather 

Patent leather boots are a winter wardrobe essential. This classic style has been updated for the season, reflecting the geometric Winter 2019 runway trends, like a chunky heel and square toe silhouette as seen on the Proenza Schouler F/W 19 runway show. 

Shop this style:

West Coast 

If you live on the west coast, your experience of winter may be a lot less chilly. Don’t sweat it! We’ve got plenty of ways for you to rep the best trends of the season, even if you need to swap out snow for sand. 


Sneakers have officially established a home for themselves on the runway, and as far as we know, they don’t plan on moving out any time soon. This season’s tenants are platform sneakers. They’re decked out with thick rubber soles, which are sure to elevate even your most casual winter looks. You can expect to see styles in lighter shades, like white, beige and lavender. 

Shop the style:

Combat Boots

In fall, we saw combat boot styles command the runway. In winter, we’ll see slight adjustments, like the addition of a buckle to provide an edgier detail. This style is sure to have you looking ready for battle… and winter of course! 

Shop the style:

Cowboy Boots

This season, we’ll see the triumphant return of the cowboy boot, adorned in wintery white tones and snake prints, both a signature of the season- so grab your cowgirl hat, and bundle up!
