When the morning’s so cold that you can hardly bear the thought of stepping outside, the Shellista II Mid Women’s Boot from The North Face will make hitting the streets a little more manageable. It’s loaded up with PrimaLoft Silver Eco insulation, so your toes will stay toasty on your commute to work or class, and the upper is made of waterproof nubuck leather that’s smooth, supple, and totally impervious to snow, sleet, and puddles. A waterproof TPR shell wraps around your feet to keep ’em safe and dry, and the soft knit collar, colored eyelets, and choice of laces helps the Shellista pop a little more than your average winter boot. All the style in the world won’t keep you upright, though, so The North Face finished the Shellista off with a TNF Winter Grip Rubber sole, which features temperature-sensitive IcePick lugs to keep you stable as a table on ice, snow, and dry ground.
