Sorel snow boots


Idaho Mountain Touring1310 W. Main St., Boise,


In an interview with Elle magazine, actress Olivia Thirlby dished about her love of dressing for a well-known Park City, Utah, film festival:

"I love Sundance because of the fashion, actually. It's a way to really show off your personal style because it's not just about a dress and heels."

The festival's snow-laden locale forces stars to hang up their stilettos and rock a style that marries function with fashion--which is downright tricky. Those two "f" words have long repelled each other, much like "style" and "snow." But stylistas prepping for chilly, slushy climates--like Idaho winters--can rejoice. Sorel's cold-weather kicks are killer.

Idaho Mountain Touring boasts some of the brand's more unique styles. One just-right-for-Boise design is the Crazy Cable Wedge ($320). In addition to a 4-inch wedge heel and a rubber sole to keep winter city slush away from toes, a knit legwarmer covers the leg of the boot with lodge-worthy bear designs across the top.

The result: a utilitarian '80s-influenced apres ski boot that even the high-heel faithful can enjoy. Granted, it's not the best choice for wading through powder. But for that, check out the faux fur-trimmed Joan of Arctic boots, and don't feel bad about putting your summer sandals in storage.
