The Combat Boot: You won’t be battling the winds with these combat boots keeping your feet nice and warm. The combat boot has been a key piece with many outfits year round, especially winter. While being sturdy, the cute combat boot can add a chic city spin to your wintery outfit. The lace-up tie and stitching also adds a vintage feel that any outfit would go greatly with. Simply adding a colored calf-length sock with tights can create a two-toned look for your boots. Combat boots also look great with jeans. Tucking your skinny-jean ankle into your boots creates a trendy look while still keeping you warm.
