I went to Kenco's the day before Snowtober storm to buy new snow boots because I had just realized that I had given away my old snow boots as part of my de-cluttering towards Happiness Project. I go to Kenco's for their beautiful outdoor gear, but I don't like the high price tags. I know that with outdoor gear, you get what you pay for though so I usually bite the bullet. I decided to check out the sale tent outside first. It looked like most of the women's shoes on sale were sandals, but then I found a bunch of women's boots, and one last pair of Salomon winter shoes that were in my size. (I can't find these shoes on the Salomon website. I wonder if they are discontinued.)
They were 50 percent off so about $52 total. They are super comfortable! They feel like rugged slippers, and are just my style. I did try on a few pair of more expensive boots inside, but these won my feet and my wallet!
I'm ready for winter, except I need to work on helping my husband with his generator-phobia. I am feeling very grateful that we didn't lose power during Snowtober storm, but I fear that next time we might not be so lucky. Hoping that power is restored to all those still waiting for it soon!
