Baby, it's cold outside.
Baby, it's too cold outside
for those fugly 20 year old snowmobile boots you're hoofing around in. 
Gallant effort, though.

<--perfect for those slushy days, the "Sorellington"

Why not pick up a new pair of Sorels this year.  Founded in 1962, the Canadian company is cooler than ever, with a host of new styles that will keep your tootsies toasty down to -25.  The website has an impeccable user interface: rotate each model to view from any angle, sort according to price or temperature resistance, and ship all over the world.  Not a netshopper?  Even chi-chi boutiques are stocking Sorels now, alongside the $500 Fiorentini & Bakers and $800 Costume Nationals.

the "Joan of Arctic"

Case in point: Sorel was recently tapped by Parisian retailer Colette to design a limited release boot.  It's just as practical as the Tivoli duck boot style, but has an extra pop with bright blue laces over the high camel tongue. 

A gift to the French, the Sorel "Collette"

I consider it a triumph when any brand you can acquire through the Sears catalogue makes the 'Do' list.
