I knew that I would have to buy snow boots once I got to Alaska. The only pair of boots I brought with me are a pair of tall Uggs. The Uggs are great at keeping my feet warm, but not so great in the snow. After a while, they would get all nasty from the snow. I wanted to prevent that.
We went to REI (it’s an outdoor store) with the expectation of spending over $100 for a new pair of boots. A good pair of snow boots are going to cost you. The first place I looked was the women’s clearance rack. They had about 20 pairs of boots on clearance, but unfortunately, they were all way too big or way too small. So I looked at the full priced boots. I picked out three pairs to try on, all ranging in price from $139.00-$159.00. I liked them, but I was not in love with any of them.
Then I spotted them, on the girl’s clearance rack. There were two pairs of boots on the girl’s clearance rack that looks big. It wouldn’t hurt to try them on. I had Tony grab me a pair and I tried them on. SCORE! They fit! They are a girl’s size 6. I normally wear a women’s size 8. The girl’s boots actually fit me better than the other three pairs I tried on.
The best part of all was the price. These boots were from last season, so they were marked down to $26.99! I had to have them. I wouldn’t have initially picked the pastel pink and purple; I probably would have chosen all black. The color has definitely grown on me. I love my new Sorel boots. I love the price even better!
If you have a smaller size foot, don’t be afraid to check out the girl’s section. You never know what you may find.
