They are definitely over the Year warranty but I may still follow it up with Head office; however in the meantime with a ski trip pending and the weather as it is I thought I'd invest in a new pair of Snow boots.
For Ski wear inspiration I tend to look at the Net-A-Porter Ski shop first, then Snow and Rock for an overview of trends. Whilst a dash of citrus brights seem to be this seasons update a monochrome look was coming through as a strong basic look. See more Snow fashion forecasts here at thesnowmag.com and 10 best Winter Boots article at Instyle.com. I've also started a Pinterest board of Snow Boot Outfits here.
Sorel is a trusted brand for footwear and I loved these black and white Glacy Explorer full fleece lined snow boots; which are appropriate for light snow and are also waterproof. They were the ones that I kept going back to and so decided to buy them from Sorel directly. Unfortunately by the time I got an email informing me they were sold out in my size they were also sold out on most other websites too!
Luckily Avenue 32 also stocked the style and I was very impressed with their service, delivery and packaging when I received them the next day, see above pics, so would definitely buy from them again. I'm very happy with the longer version as they also do a shortie boot, below, if you want an alternative to a welly and aren't planning to be in the snow any time soon!
