A great pair of boots
Every Chicagoan has a pair of winter boots that they absolutely swear by. Now, there’s a difference between snow boots and everyday winter boots. Sorrell makes absolutely clutch snow boots—the kind that allow you to walk directly through a snowbank and keep your feet dry as a bone. That said, they’re pretty heavy and should be reserved for actual snow days. Blundstone makes fantastic, lighter weight boots perfect for everyday cold weather use.
