Like many of you, I too am dreading the months ahead of bitter and cold weather. And although the extreme temperature has its downfalls, I am going to attempt to make the best out of the winter season. There is no better way to be ready for it than to be properly dressed for the occasion, as well as the variety of events that come along with the temperature change.

Obviously you need to stay warm and keep bundled during the months when the Forest City gets pummeled with snow, and with all of the endeavors you embark upon, you want to make sure your body, especially your toes, stay nice and warm. To prepare for the Canadian cold season, you will need high quality winter boots to keep you toasty and dry in order to tolerate the frost beneath your feet.

When purchasing footwear at any time of the year, you want to ensure that you are getting maximum comfort, durability and protection. However, at this time of year you should also look for supreme defense against the winter elements, especially moisture. Doing so will not only make you look and feel better, but it will help protect you from catching a nasty Christmas cold.

Winter boots for every adventure can be found this season in many different colours, shapes and styles. Not only will real and faux fur be prevalent in a lot of clothing and outerwear this holiday season, but it will adorn our feet as well. The elements we are facing over the next few months can be related to the lifestyle and wardrobe of the Eskimos that live up North; much of the inspiration from many different shoe designers was derived from that Inuit look. Every season has it's own source and inspiration, and for Fall/Winter 2005/2006 the Northern look has trickled south and landed right in front of us.

Ultimate comfort and extreme warmth and protection against the bitter cold are in this season. And regardless of where you may stand on the fur issue, it will dominate the streets until buds once again begin to blossom on the trees.

So be sure to bundle up, and stay warm this season, and from Eskimo to Uggs, keep your feet insolated and fashionable.
