I have abandoned my EMU ugg boots in favor of my Hunter Rain Boots of late… there is simply too much snow here in CT to be treading around town in my barely waterproof (though very warm) ugg boots.

Not to mention I have grown fond of how Hunters look with all types of outfits. I love the hunter green and think it’s just as versatile as neutral colors. I had a pair of yellow Hunter boots a few years ago but didn’t get nearly as much wear out of those for some reason so I guess my fashion sense has changed (for better or worse).

(I apologize in advance for the cords you see in the pictures…I usually photograph just to the left of all my computer cords and treadmill but didn’t pay much attention today)

I didn’t think I would be in the market for another pair of Hunter rain boots so soon (especially because I am cutting back on clothing spending) but I am yearning for another color. The boots themselves are too cold to wear without warm socks in the winter so I am also thinking about splurging on a few pairs of Hunter Welly socks before the winter is over.

What are your favorite pair of casual winter shoes?

p.s. I got my current pair of Hunter rain boots for only $57.49 from Nordstrom’s, I chronicled that experience here.
