Six Cold Season Power Boots

To successfully combat winter's wet and chilly weather, you really need power boots. By power boots I mean boots that can do at least two jobs at the same time: be rugged enough for walking (as opposed to hopping in and out of the car) and nice enough to look at. Boots that I'm about to show you are made of quality materials that will not fall apart from contact with water, snow, salt or ice-clearing agents and are also stylish enough to wear in the city.

I picked out two sets of ankle boots, designed and made in Spain: one embellished, one plain, by four great, reputable Spanish brands. Let's take a closer look!

Looking, of course, as I usually do, in the "Made in Spain" orbit, I came across a Zaragoza-area company called AGARE.

Continuing with the boot topic in the run-up to the holidays, here is a tremendous pair of winter boots by Jose Saenz, an Arnedo, La Rioja, company. I've been watching Jose Saenz for a while.
