3 Boot Styles to Love

3 Boot Styles to Love

Winter is here. What better way to ring in the season than with new boots from Scheels? Here are just a few examples of different styles and how to wear them.

Sophisticated

If you are looking for a dressier boot, a heel is a fabulous way to spice up your outfit. The Isola boot, with a gold accented heel, provides height in the heel as well as the calf, making you appear taller and more slender. Pair this boot with a fitted pant, or legging, to keep the shape of your legs. On top, this fitted Miss Me tee has a whimsical, beaded neckline under a dressier sweater keeping this look professional. Finish the look off with an oversized black leather bag to help keep you looking trim and sassy.

Practical yet Fashionable

Perhaps you are looking for a more practical, but still fashionable winter boot. These Sorel’s are a superb option. With a boot that ends just above your ankle, and isn’t fitted, choose a more casual outfit.  Printed leggings are a fun and trendy alternative to your everyday jeans.  A black and taupe check pattern is the perfect pairing with this casual boot. A solid black blouse and a taupe scarf carry your colors up near your face, without a distracting pattern. Simple gold jewelry and a neutral leather bag help complete the ensemble.

Fun Sized

If you prefer a shorter bootie, this pair by Blowfish is an easy day-to-day shoe. The wedge style of this bootie would look great with a boot leg pant or jean covering the top of the boot. The coloring of this booty is casual and when paired with a bootleg jean can give you a taller look. If you want to add a bit of pizazz into your outfit, this Aventura tee is a unique way to incorporate a pattern into your outfit. Top this off with a Big Buddah bag, and a darling vest, and you’re ready to go!

Preparing Your Feet for the Field

Scheels Boots Hunting

Dennis Stabe and Dan Anderson are Scheels experts who share a passion for hunting.

Not only do they love hunting, they also love outfitting Scheels customers with just the right gear and apparel to help make their big game hunting trips successful.

Of all the questions Stabe (St. Cloud, MN) and Anderson (Cedar Falls, IA) get asked the most, many of them pertain to one of the most important assets of any hunter…  the feet.

“No matter what type of game you are chasing, if your feet aren’t happy, you’re not happy, ” says Stabe. “Your feet being warm and comfortable often is the difference between being able to stay afield and be successful, or being miserable and going home early and empty-handed.”

Anderson adds, “Customers many times want to skimp on the quality of hunting footwear they purchase for a hunt to save a few dollars. It is important to teach them the differences in the higher-end footwear, and how it will benefit them. Our customers spend a lot of money on their hunts. Nothing can ruin a hunt more than having sore, wet, and blistered feet. Do not spoil your hunt that you many times have thousands of dollars invested in to save $100 on a pair of boots.”

And once you’ve made a decision on those boots, don’t forget, there’s one more critical decision that makes or breaks your comfort during the hunt.

“A hunting boot can’t perform at its best without a quality sock,” says Stabe. “A wool blend is a favorite choice because it delivers incredible warmth while wicking moisture away from your foot leaving you warm, dry and comfortable.”
