Get Stuff We Love
They may seem superhuman, but celebrities get cold toes in winter, too. So, which pair of snow boots do they keep alongside their stiletto collections? According to what we saw at Sundance this year, it's Sorel's Cozy Joan.
Back in January, several celebrities were spotted in this waterproof sneaker boot. For starters, take a look at smiling Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hilary Swank, who sported them on the snow-covered streets of Park City.
The stars seem to prefer the black and white colorway, but the boots — available at Amazon, Zappos and Nordstrom — also come in gray, khaki and green with funky pink laces. The Cozy Joan Celebration boot (now $105) is similar but comes with a more substantial faux fur trim. ("The Big Sick" star Zoe Kazan arrived at Salt Lake City International Airport ahead of the festival in a pair.)
So, what makes this boot so popular on winter's red carpets? It’s waterproof. It’s insulated. It’s breathable. And it’s chic, thanks to the leather, suede and faux fur components.
The Cozy Joan debuted in Sorel's fall 2017 collection, and according to its Amazon reviews (averaging 4.2 stars), fans have found them ideal for wearing everywhere from Iceland to Germany, Quebec and New York. One rave 5-star review came from a mail carrier who said they keep her feet dry despite stepping in puddles and snow.
Also, take note: Most reviews say to go up a half size from your normal size.
And the best part? These boots were originally $140, but now many sites are offering up to 35 percent off as part of their winter sales! Now is the best time to invest for next year. But, considering that winter doesn’t technically end until March 20, you may need a pair sooner than you think.
Zappos and Amazon are offering 30 percent off the gray pair.
Mountain Steals is offering the black pair for 25 percent off.
Shoes.com is offering 35 percent off the Cozy Joan x Celebration boot. More sizes are available at Sorel's website.
