So, I live in Georgia but I'm graduating and starting a PhD program in Colorado this January. Obviously there are some serious climate differences (as in I went water skiing this weekend and bf in CO went actual skiing) that I'm trying to prepare myself for. I bought a puffy down coat, bf got me wool socks and base layers for my bday, etc. However, I have no fucking idea what kind of shoes I need. I know I need something waterproof for trekking through the snow but I'm also obnoxiously snobby about styles of footwear. Does anyone have any cute, waterproof boot styles that won't break the bank? Something similar to Frye boots but not Frye boots because holy shit why so expensive?
