I have a confession: I’m not much of a heels girl. I love how they look, and I love how I feel in them, except for when I don’t. Let’s face it: heels hurt, and I’m just not always willing to endure the pain if not totally necessary. Especially in the winter. I’m accident prone enough without trying to safely navigate the icy sidewalks of Chicago on half-inch-in-diameter, 4-inch-in-height shoes. Enter: chunky heeled boots. These have been a lifesaver throughout both NYC and Chicago falls and winters. They add some much-needed height, they’re cute, they’re versatile, and they’re comfortable (+ relatively stable) enough to wear all day. Over time, I’ve amassed a decent collection in the necessary shades of brown, black, and grey. Most of the styles I own (above) are no longer available, but below are some similar boots currently out there that I love.
