The Eskimo casual boot is the perfect balance of comfort and style for cold snowy days. The quilted wool and leather uppers are not only water resistant but stylish. The faux-fur lining adds warmth and a little character to take you from slushy parking lots to a casual dinner date. Slippery sidewalks are no match for the All Terra Traction rubber outsole which is non-marking and slip resistant as well as durable. Memory foam lines the footbed with a built-in, contoured arch for comfort and support.
The Thyme is a great bootie with smooth, glove-soft leather. The pleated detailing makes them versatile enough to pair with a sweater dress, wear to work, or even a night on the town with skinny jeans. Similar to the Eskimo, the Thyme features an ankle strap with goring to create a custom fit to keep the warm in and the cold out. A removable, contoured arch support will keep your feet in step on days that turn into nights and a side zipper for easier on-and-off.
These are both winners depending on the weather and the wardrobe. The Eskimo may seem like the clear winner on snowy days because of the water resistance. However, the Thyme could be treated, with a product such as Aquatec, to step up its water resistance game, leveling the playing field once again. Really it comes down to wardrobe. The Thyme is more easily dressed up but not quite as warm. Whereas, the Eskimo is more causal with better traction and warmth.
