Alright, we’re New Yorkers. We’ve managed to somehow survive over 40 inches of snow, the coldest day in 65 years the city has experienced, and now a hurricane.
So we’re used to it. We’re also the place that had a curfew for a snowstorm that never happened, refused to shut down schools for when a snowstorm did hit, and we were attacked by a huge Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
Again, we’re used to it. And while you might not need these heavy duty shoes for this weekend specifically, be sure to have them on hand for the next random show of force by mother nature.
Doc Martens. Alas, the boots you’d wear for when you want to seem cool and hip, all the while showing you have a punk side and don’t mind getting down to business. These boots are meant to last and it’s amazing that they’ve never gone out of style. Wear them with skinny jeans (black of course) or with a nice dress, and they’ll make that rainy day conquerable.

Hunter Boots: The “I’m Not Messing Around” boots. They’re there for a reason: you’re a hipster generation who doesn’t want to ruin their designer ripped jeans. And I get that, really, and extra points for the socks too. But while this post is about practical, functional fashion and not “mainstream/independent” ones, I’m saying that these boots are the best for those splashes. You know what I’m talking about, those curbs where the street dips too low and you land in the Atlantic Ocean? This is what these boots are for. I mean, you’re coat and everything else will be wet, but rest assured that the calf below the knee will remain nice and dry.

Converse: They bring that stylish manner all the while making sure that you’re feet are warm and comfortable. So you look cool, casual, and you can run without the clunky feeling of constriction that comes with Docs or Hunters.
