Ladies Ankle Boots

Updated on March 6, 2014

Winter Footwear for Women

These are a wonderful fashion good for most times of the year. When winter comes around boots are a must in my neck of the woods. It starts out with the cold bringing the gorgeous colors of fall. I love to walk around through the crunchy leaves. If I don't wear a short boot the leaves end up getting caught in the tops of my sneakers and they love to attach themselves to my socks. This is not hard to handle, it is when the rain comes and everything mushes up that a boot is necessary. Seems like the snow is slowly becoming a thing of the past so a short boot will suffice.

I wrote that last sentence before the horrible snowfall we had this year and I blame myself for saying it. Have you ever noticed that when you say one thing just the opposite happens. The snow was record breaking in the US this year and I will not be sorry to see it go. That and the bitter cold. The winter Olympics are over and all through them I kept thinking that something is wrong. It is 50 degrees in Russia and 10 degrees in Pennsylvania ? I for one believe in Global Warming and after this winter there should not be any nay sayers left.

Color ?

Color is not so much a problem when you are wearing jeans. In the cold weather of the Pennsylvania mountains jeans are a staple of my wardrobe. For dress wear I like to invest in black because this color goes with anything. I have some brown shoes and I feel like I am limited with what I can wear them with. In the end your choice of color in a bag will make or break your outfit. If you have a brown purse brown shoes are a must. A black bag and black or gray shoes are best to highlight any fashions you decide to wear. After you choose a color you will need to consider what you are going to need the boots for. Hiking is a whole different realm of things you need to consider. For now simply figure what will be most comfortable. If you are going to be in any snow high is out. A nice low heel is still great for evening and dress wear.

Now that you have a color find a bag that will compliment your outfit and choice of footwear

What Not to Wear

I am short and need a bit of a heel to add some height to myself overall. Unfortunately this year I did a bad thing and the results were a disaster. I had to go to funeral and did not have shoes to wear. It was winter and I figured boots would be best. I purchased a pair of boots that looked fabulous. I got them in a size bigger than I usually wear. The girl at the store told me with shoes today coming from all over the world all sizes are not the same. They did feel better than those in my size but once I had them on for a little while my big toe started to hurt. The store was closed and I had to wear the boots. Now I know why my mother always said to get shoes that fit. Since they had a heel my foot kept slipping forward. I never even thought to stuff the toes to help them fit. Now I don't think I will ever be able to wear heels again. So the moral of the story is "Get the right size and if they are too big stuff the toes with paper"

If you have any foot problems you shouldn't wear high heels no matte how good they look and you look wearing them. If you must find a pair with at roomy toe. I love all of these but don't think I will be wearing them anytime soon.

I have the feeling that I won't listen to my own advise and by this time next year I will be trying new heels.

To Boot or Not to Boot

With winter on the way out for this year I wouldn't buy anything other than something ankle high.

This boot was modeled after the Timberland original yellow boot. Additions of a teddy fleece lining for extra warmth and comfort and a soft suede shaft for easy roll-top styling offer a new twist on an old classic. A waterproof membrane is sure to keep feet dry and comfortable.

Taslan nylon fibers make the laces with rustproof hardware for long-lasting wear. It has the legendary Timberland rubber lug outsole for traction on any surface. I love this boot in the yellow.

Songs about boot to information videos of what to wear.

The one song about boots that sticks with me is "These Boots are Made for Walking". I guess that is because I lived through listening to it on the radio day in and day out.
