Above all else, winter is boots and booties season. While other times of year claim myriad footwear options—sandals, wedges, sneakers and the like—winter only claims the boot, leaving the winter booties landscape pretty damn stacked as far as shopping goes. Many of us are apt to stock up on winter booties once cold weather begins creeping into fall—and this makes a ton of sense. It is, after all, when many of us ritualistically re-up our cold-weather wardrobe situation. But there’s a better, more underrated time to shop winter booties: when they’re on sale—AKA, right now.
February’s only just begun. And while our favorite little groundhog predicted an early spring this year, odds are, we’ll have several weeks (or more) of winter weather to grapple with before spring’s in full swing. What’s nice about this prolonged period of cold weather? Stores have already stocked up on spring wares. Seriously, your go-to retailers have traded their winter pieces for trendy spring options—leaving all the cold weather-friendly stuff hiding out in the sale section, just waiting to be snatched up.
Typically, you have to wait until the off-season to buy stuff on the cheap; but right now, you have the option to load up on discounted pieces you can wear today, tomorrow and for weeks to come. And yes, these aforementioned mark-downs apply to winter booties. So if you’ve waited all season to buy a new pair of adorable ankle boots—or if you’re just the kind of person who shops shoes whenever they have an excuse to—it’s about time you checked out the sales section. Because there are tons of cute winter booties that are on sale—and they’d love to accompany you as you navigate the rest of the season.
