If there’s one season when extending your shoe collection is a must, then that’s winter. Winter’s already here so prepare yourself in advance and buy the right kind of shoes that will, in reality, keep your feet warm. While you can get away with wearing shoes like sandals and heels in most of the months, the sudden onset of cold days during the end of December and January means that seasonally appropriate styles are indeed essential.

Some of the things you need to consider are – what to wear when going to work, what to wear in the house, and shoes for hiking among other outdoor activities if you’re quite an adventurous soul. You also should take note of shoes that you should avoid. Those shoes that expose you to the extreme cold or wetness should be completely evaded. So here’s a guide for you to help you choose your winter shoes wisely, without being too heavy on your pocket.
