Your extremities tend to be the hardest parts of your body to keep warm. Ensure that your feet stay nice and cozy with Volt Heated Slippers. These boot-style shoes feature a series of tiny conductive fibers woven into the insoles and a built-in rechargeable 3.7-volt lithium-ion battery that combine to heat your feet no matter the temperature outside. And unlike some solutions that are more than happy to heat you well beyond comfortable temperatures, these feature a built-in, auto-adjusting thermostat that will keep things from getting too hot.
If you need a good pair of winter boots, but aren't too fond of the bulk and weight typically associated with warmer footwear, you need a pair of Native Jimmy Duck Boots. They've taken the familiar silhouette of the duck boot and modernized it, building it with lightweight EVA material and updated colorways. Choose from jiffy black, regatta blue, torch red, and beaver brown. Each pair is completely waterproof, washable so they're easy to keep clean, anti-microbial and odor-resistant so you don't have to worry about them getting nasty, and lined with micro fleece for warmth on even the coldest days.
Keep your look on the track old-school, while still giving your feet all the comfort and protection of a modern boot, with these Sparco Classic Racing Shoes ($280). These shoes are made with a full leather upper, giving them a handsome retro look with a comfortable fit. The sole is still made to resist fuel and oil — just like any other FIA-approved shoe — while providing plenty of grip whether you're walking the pits or pushing the pedal down. The only challenge now will be finding a racing suit that still looks the part.
Even if your weekend plans involve plenty of time spent walking trails, splitting wood, and lounging around a campfire, you still don't need to abandon everything you know about style and don a pair of clunky, technical boots. These Feit Hiker Boots ($620) have style to spare and handmade artisanal construction that could quite possibly outlast you. Each pair features vegetable-tanned leather available in a range of colorways, including corteccia, nero, burgundy, smog, and natural (the last of which comes lined with shearling wool). They come completely stitched — there's no glue holding on these soles — and are made from a single piece of leather with Goodyear construction and a flexible Vibram Gumlite outsole.
Prepare for the harshness of winter but don't miss out on the comfort of your favorite pair of sneakers with Nike LunarTerra Arktos Boots ($190). These modular boots are made using their Lunarlon midsole to reduce weight while improving comfort and movement. Nike's Vac Tec molding helps keep seams sealed around the tongue, toe, and foxing, while a sealed zipper contributes to waterproofing. Their Flywire and Hyperfuse technologies keep the upper flexible, while the sticky yet hard outsole helps for stability and traction.
