I don’t consider myself fashion forward but I do like to look nice and appear “in with the times”! However I don’t believe in buying new clothing all the time to accomplish this, especially when it comes to winter footwear. Let’s face the facts, winter boots can’t be reused once they’ve expired. So instead of buying used I spend some extra money up front and buy a really good pair of boots that are nice looking but also keep out the wet and cold and will last many years. Ultimately this approach saves me money since I don’t spend anywhere from $50-150 every year for new boots and there aren’t machines running and consuming materials to produce more cheap boots which just end up in landfills.
