Your guide to women’s winter footwear

Every year, you find yourself in a dilemma of what to wear during winter. You know when winter is coming, so prepare yourself in advance and buy the right shoes.

What activities do you carry out during winter? Some of the things to consider are: what to wear when going to work, what to wear indoors, and shoes for hiking among other outdoor activities. You also should take note of shoes that you should avoid: those that expose you to the extreme cold or wetness.

During winter, you will come across various interesting shoe designs and fashions. Don’t be left behind! You need something that not only keeps your feet warm and dry but also something that enhances your look. Every woman needs a boot that is both functional and stylish, correct?

FitFlop has put together a guide with its latest winter styles to keep you comfortable but on trend as well:

Wonderful wellies

Wellington boots are definitely a suitable choice for rainy conditions. One of the benefits is their waterproof design. Made from rubber or other materials, these boots are perfect for keeping your feet dry in wet weather conditions.

The FitFlop Wonderwelly Short is a technologically advanced welly with all the features you need for all-day comfort.

FitFlop set out to turn an iconic silhouette into the world’s comfiest welly with its biomechanically engineered technology. They contoured the sole to evenly contribute bodyweight, filled the hollowed-out heel with an innovative honeycomb design that absorbs the impact of every step ,and placed high-rebound micro springsboards in the forefoot of this lightweight waterproof boot to help put a spring in your step.

Oh so comfy

When you wear winter boots for a long time, comfort is an important issue. What does this mean? Well, comfortable shoes should encourage the correct walking posture and support the arch and foot. Also, lacing systems and insoles should contribute to the comfort. Check whether the insole has arch support and padding. If the manufacturer has used special orthopaedic insoles, ensure they fit the shoe accordingly.

The consistently popular FitFlopRally trainer has been given curvy panelling to change things up a bit. This keeps the round-toe ‘tennis shoe’ shape that works with virtually everything (joggers, jeans, dresses, tailoring), yet adds a slightly sportier vibe. Panels add detail and allow you to mix colours/materials, while the suede is protected by Scotchgard™. All on ultra-light, perfectly cushioned Anatomicush™ midsoles, with flex lines cut across the bottom to let your feet move naturally. Softly padded, fresh and casual, this shoe will become your go-to on busy days when comfort is non-negotiable.

Luscious leather

Leather boots are a must-have for the winter season, but with so many to choose from, picking the right style can get tricky. They are versatile and more durable if cared for properly. The material is hard and therefore ideal for more abrasive areas. They are easy to clean and are water-repellent.

It will look equally sharp teamed with skirts, skinnies, cropped trousers and shift dresses – and thanks to FitFlop’s all-day-cushioning SupercomFF midsole tech, every step will feel fantastic.

Go flat out

Ballerina shoes are the cutest shoes to wear during winter. There may be heavy rains or puddles of water on the pavement, but when you really love flats, no weather will stop you from wearing them!
