http://www.gear-zone.co.uk - As the mercury falls, there’s nothing worse than cold feet – when that bone-chilling sensation swiftly creeps into the very centre of your being to leave your teeth chattering and your core body temperature crying out for a little warmth. So what could be nicer than slipping into a pair of fur-lined boots for the ultimate in cold weather comfort? Here at Gear-Zone we have a selection of insulated footwear for every occasion – from the technical Hi-Tec Women’s Park City Sport 200 to the elegant-but-equally-practical Shellista Lace Luxe from The North Face. Luxurious, Foot-Warming Comfort As much at home during serious Alpine après-ski festivities as on the snow-covered pavements closer to home, here’s our guide to the very best in luxurious, foot-warming comfort this winter. The Park City from Hi-Tec is part of their Insulated Collection of trail-blazing boots for ladies, with Thinsulate insulation ensuring cosy warmth in a lightweight waterproof synthetic shell with faux fur lining for added comfort. Hi-Tec’s St Moritz 200 Snow Boot is another favourite amongst fashion-conscious females looking for some technical, stylish footwear to help them get a grip in icy conditions. Non-Slip Grip Underfoot Again, Thinsulate insulation is responsible for the comfort factor, while a purpose-made winter outsole provides non-slip grip underfoot. TNF’s women’s Chilkat II is an anatomically engineered feminine boot made for walking and hiking when the going gets seriously tough…designed to cope with temperatures as low as -32c. PrimaLoft insulation – eco-friendly for those with a concern for environmental credentials – guarantees cosy warmth whatever the elements decide to throw at you, in a waterproof construction with plenty of breathability to keep your feet fresh and dry at all times. Winter Grip soles will cope with the slipperiest ice and snow conditions on the hill or on the high street. The North Face Nuptse Fur Bootie IV is the ultimate in stylish round-town wear, packed with luxurious 600 fill power down insulation, while the Merrell Taiga Buckle in full grain leather combines function and fashion in a trendy-looking model with faux fur and synthetic Polartec Thermo insulated lining. Last Word in Elegance And for the really serious cold weather adventurer, The North Face Women’s Shellista Lace Luxe is not only the very last word in elegance and luxury, but comes in a technically-constructed shell able to cope with sub-zero conditions and with temperature-sensitive sole lugs to provide unparalleled traction underfoot. Nordic styling – likened to a traditional Fair Isle sweater – will appeal to all those who like their practical footwear wrapped in the prettiest of packages!
