With winter being only nine days away, the majority of folks want to stay at home and curl up under the covers with their four-legged friends, loved ones, or simply by themselves. Some, however, don’t mind that 20 degrees and below weather because they want to take the city streets in style with their winter gear. Two major fashion essentials for the winter would have to be a pair of boots and a stylish coat. With this being stated, Downtown Magazine has rounded up ten boots and coats that’ll give your outfit a pop this winter…not to mention, keep you warm!

Most importantly, you will feel comfortable when walking in these boots because they have a stacked block heel!
