Last winter, fed up with slipping around on slick wet/icy pavements I decided to try some snow boots from a local independent shop and I haven't looked back. I've unpacked them again this winter and they're still going strong. A good grip on wet or icy paths and the bon us that they work for snow days too.
I was wondering if they will last for a 3rd winter and started looking around for a new pair. To my horror I couldn't find them and the girl in the original shop I had bought them in just looked at me blankly (that vacant Saturday shop girl expression!) Then by chance I found a pair in John Lewis and discovered they have become a John Lewis own brand! This pair are now mine.
These are similar to the style of the pair I originally bought (great for fitting any calf size.)
They aren't listed as Antarctica but you can see the label in the pictures. I shall be keeping an eye open for the sales and maybe adding a 3rd pair to my collection. Maybe in a different colour to black.
Hopefully they will be popular at John Lewis and they will continue to stock them. Then I will never have to worry about finding winter boots again!
