Sort of a "Flashdance" meets "Urban Cowboy" feel, no?

I like this style for winter, and they look snug enough to keep you warm. These are from overstock.com

I'm in the same boat LATTE!!!

The above boots are cute but I am looking for something warm (fur lined?) waterproof, and with a heel (has to be a thick one b/c stilletos are no good on ice and 10 inch deep snow!

hmm maybe motorcycle boots? I'm not too good at picking out boots that are actually to keep your feet dry, etc.. since I live in Texas

These Hush Puppies are cute, warm, well-made, comfy, long-lasting and affordable...come in black, white, and beige.

www.hushpuppies.com

Perhaps not completely waterproof, but no leather boots are for that matter. Hope you like it!

Unlike most people here, I don't hate Uggs. In fact, when it gets cold in my neck-of-the-woods, I won't hesitate to wear my Uggs. On the other hand, I've never been a fan of the whole mukluk thing. So I vote black uggs

I guess by waterproof I meant I don't want my gorgeous suede boots falling apart after one day in the slush and salt!! Those boots are cute. Isn't anyone making a chunky heel this year? =/

thanks for the help guys I really appreciate it!

never actually bought a pair of the uggs but im contemplating them or mukluks like I said. They are just so perfect, I like that mukluks are a native canadian made boot I just think its nice that a native style became popular, another possibility is some taller moccasins, but they arent the warmest.

I also like the fact the prices have gone down uggs are made so cheap they got disgustingly overpriced here

I have pink ugg slippers and they are so warm and comfortable I sometimes wear them out on a cold day I honestly don't find uggs bad... just overdone last year.
