Ski boots.. worn as snow boots?
So I bought this pair of Emilio Pucci ski boots for a shoot. They came, and I fell in love with them. Now, I know they are SKI boots - but umm.. would they just be ok for wearing as snow boots? Meaning an investment boot for those days it might happen to snow! Would they just look horrible? Since they are ski boots, yes, they make my feet look big.. but I love them.. they are .

I'm not personally into snowboots, moonboots and so on, but I guess you should just wear them, since you love them so much

Me either! But then I opened the box and it was love at first sight. I guess I should...a bit of a splurge, but an investment!

yup i was also confused because she referred to those as "ski" boots...
(are these "snow" boots? )

but also back to the topic,

i think its fine to wear those as long as you wear them because you are actually cold. meaning, dont pair them with minis during winter, dont wear them when its not cold.. the huge PUCCI ribbon kinda bothers me, but the pucci print on the boots is rather nice...

i'm in the same boat as the last two. i think concerning those boots they can be considered with snow or ski according to how you're using the word ski.

Those are surely not ski boots. They look like snowboard boots. Ski boots look like this .....




Etc. Etc. Etc.
Get It?

Exactly Heelguy
These are acutally, MOON BOOTS. I dont care what NM calls them they are NOT ski boots. These are purely "fashion" boots. Pucci and others copied style from the original makers of the Moon Boot, Technica in the late 70s early 80s(?). Am I showing my age here.

Being from the snow, I know these are DEFINITELY not ski boots and they should have never been called that. Perhaps it was misread and NM called them apres-ski?

Daughter loves these btw and wear them however and whenever you want (Just not on skis)!
