The Arriviste is really ahead of the curve when it comes to stylish weather boots.  A year ago, this scribe raved about the comfort, the stylish compliments, and the all-terrain high heeled Sorel's Media Tall Rain Boots booties, "Surviving New York Fashion Week, in February, in Style & Comfort" http://luxurist.blogspot.com/search?q=Sorel.  This scribe had also tried, tested, and trudge through Manhattan's bumpy mean streets in ECCO Sculptured 75 Ankle Boot,"Comfort Meets Style for Shopping in Ecco Sculpture 75 Bootie. This Boot is Made for Walking & Strutting."http://luxurist.blogspot.com/2013/12/comfort-meets-style-for-shopping-in.html

This past Sunday's New York Times Fashion and Style article, "What the Elite Wear to Meet the Sleet", http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/16/fashion/winter-snow-New-York-Fashion-Week.html?ref=fashion&_r=0, vouched the virtues of these stealth, deceptively stylish but tough and comfortable all-weather booties.

Sorel Boots were the most coveted footwear during this recent snow-bound, ironically Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week.  Eva Chen, the editor in chief of Lucky. “Everyone’s wearing Sorels today. Snow makes Fashion Week democratic.”

Almost a month ago, Laurie Trott, the Los Angeles-based fashion director of the website Who What Wear, was lecturing on sex and fashion on a sunny, balmy L.A. Sunday.  Next, she's trudging thru the snow banks in her treasured vintage Sorel Boots she got on Ebay because the Sorel boots she wanted were cleared, retail-wise, during the traditional January clearance sales.

Why so hot for Sorel during a blizzard?  Stylish, not slip-sliding, Sorel Medina Tall Boot has
Waterproof vulcanized rubber and patent leather upper heel, ...

  • Molded EVA footbed
  • Arch support
  • Pigskin leather topcover
  • Rubber sole
  • Stacked leather heel
  • 4” heel with 1” platform
From runway to rainy day, this luxe waterproof rain boot is ideal for keeping feet dry and comfortable in a downpour – it also happens to be seriously sexy. The upper features a mix of vulcanized rubber and patent leather while a molded EVA footbed ensures feet are cushioned and supported. The stacked leather heel is surprisingly walkable and the platform rubber sole under the forefoot provides great traction in slippery circumstances. Glide gracefully through a deluge, into the office and then on to happy hour. 
No wonder serious fashionistas were clinging to their Sorel Boots.
