Chasing Davies: Shoe(s) of the Fridged Cold Day

Shoe(s) of the Fridged Cold Day

Goodness Gracious! It was -11 degrees (that's a negative sign in front of that 11) with wind chill today where I live in Kansas. Brrrrrr. My yard is covered with about 8 inches of snow:

Trying to keep warm and dry in my rain slickers is not cutting it. My feet freeze in these.

It's pretty, but I hate it. Thankfully, I get to work from home instead of spending hours driving slowly and slippery to work and avoid these temps - but I'm getting a bit of cabin fever, friends! Though even if I go outside (I ventured out to shovel the driveway), it only lasts a few minutes!

This is one of the coldest and snowiest winters we've had in a loooong time. It is forcing me to shop for things like...

Uglys - er - I mean Uggs

I want the Ultra kind with the thick soles to keep my feet dry.
If I'm gonna wear some glorified slippers, I at least want to be dry, warm and comfy...
So I guess these Uggs are the way to go.

Or do I get a real snow boot instead of the glorified slipper with a thick sole?

Sorel Caribou Snow Shoes.
Fully waterproof and very durable.
Kind dorky, though?

Or maybe these...a little less work boot-esq...
Still waterproof and the fleece lining keeps your toes warm.
Sorel Kenai Boots

Or what about these? A lighter color maybe will be cuter?
Same Sorel brand and capabilities... Cumberland Snow boot

I wish I were shopping for shoes like these...

Pretty Heels

Summer Sandals

Anyone have any recommendations for warm places to move - er - I mean, snow boots/shoes to get to keep my feet dry and warm, oh and be comfy, and not look like a huge nerd?
