Favorite Shoes for Snow

Updated on August 17, 2014

Bought these last week and I've worn them about every day since! I love my new Merrell Jungle Mocs.

We're not even a month into winter and I'm tired of pulling on my snow boots. I wanted something easy to slip into that would still keep me from slipping when there's snow underfoot. These shoes fit the bill perfectly. And, they're so comfortable, I've been wearing them around the house. They really are my new favorite shoes.

Where I work, we have a "no boot" dress code. Dress boots are okay, but the lug bottom boots that get you safely across a snowy parking lot are supposed to be ditched at the door. Well, these suede slip-ons are perfectly within the dress code and look great with casual pants and jeans (that we are permitted to wear). I can go straight from the car to a meeting without having to change shoes and stash my boots.

These Merrell Jungle Mocs are well constructed and have excellent support. I have flat feet and am most comfortable in shoes with a well constructed arch (like Birkenstocks). The Mocs have flexible side gussets to accommodate those with a higher arch. The lug bottom sole is stable but also flexible enough for easy walking.

Merrell even claims these shoes have a "no smell" feature! They're treated with something they call an Aegris Microbe Shield that "controls odor, staining and deterioration" caused by microbes. It may be to early too tell about the deterioration, but I've had no smelly feet complaints!

I bought my first pair in Midnight and they go with just about everything. That's right, I said "first pair," because I'm about to pick up at least one more pair. I'm thinking Nubuck for the next pair.

Winter -- where do you stand?

Here's my new favorite shoe in Nubuck. I plan to get this one next. What do you think?

      These look so comfy! I believe my daughter in Oregon is sporting a pair of these in winter and she's really picky so they must be awesome shoes.

      I wore a pair of these shoes to work a few years ago - they are great. My favorite way to beat winter's chill is "sharing body heat" (cuddling up to someone is the quickest way to get warm). Course, it should be someone you like (and who doesn't mind).

      Wish I'd known about these when I was still working and still living in snowy areas. Comfortable and look good too with slacks. Perfect.

      I'm so glad you got a pair of these. I have some in the brown (Nubuck, I guess) and love them too!
