Recently, I scored a trendy pair of embellished slip-on loafers at a great discount. I love the shoes and will get plenty of wear out of them when the weather warms up, but they won't see the light of day until then as it's cold and slush season. That's why you can't go wrong with a good pair of winter boots for plus-sizes: and as someone who's run through my fair share of pairs, mark my words: quality matters.
I live in New York City, where the streets can be rough on your feet—and on your shoes. I've blistered my toes trying to break brand-new leather mules in, and I've worn down the soles of cute-but-cheap trendy booties. Although you can't completely avoid discomfort while breaking boots in, you can make sure that your investment is worth the occasion. And with a variety of styles to inspire you, rotating your look won't be a problem. Shop our edit below.
