Fashion: From stylishly warm clompers to booties for a spiffy soiree, Jeanne Beker checks out the city’s top finds for feet

(A) Whiteout
Dr. Martens at Gravitypope, 1010 Queen St. W., $165
“These are just so much fun. A Doc Marten in white?! I love the purity of the way they look, but they’d look pretty cool hacked up too.”

(B) Patent play
Ingeborg’s, 9350 Yonge St., $198
“This wonderful red patent leather just screams for attention, but they’re classic too. There’s nice tread on the bottom for slippery weather and a sensible heel.”

(C) Retro vibes
Ron White, 1553 Bayview Ave., $595
“Ron White does some really beautiful shoes. There’s almost like a faux fur lining. They’re cosy — definitely made for a colder climate — but very chic.”

(D) On point
Studio D, 2570 Yonge St., $845
“These are so killer. We love this delicate feminine studding — these are just one sexy bootie. I wouldn’t wear them in a snowstorm, but wear galoshes and put them on at the party!”

(E) Fringe benefits
SHOES.COM, 356 Queen St. W., $185
“Fringes, fringes, fringes! There’s a beautiful romance to these little boots, and this stacked heel would be rather comfortable. A really good deal.”

(F) A steel (toe)
Jeanne beker for The Shoe Company, 2355 Yonge St., $129.99
“These are not leather and are very affordable. They’ve that great steel toe to give that rock kind of edge. A great basic bootie.”

(G) Spot on
John Fluevog, 686 Queen St. W., $399
“You’ve gotta hand it to John Fluevog for just pushing it continually. It’s a real quality boot with a funky heel and polka dots. These are for happy feet!”

(H) Slalom swing
Miista at Heel Boy, 773 Queen St. W., $305
“This is a great nod to the ’40s ski chalet look. It’s like the classic lace-up ski boot, but it’s got this rubber heel and sole that give it a modern edge."

(I) Just zip it
Vince Camuto at Shoe Bag, 426 Eglinton Ave. W., $250
“These are great. I love the bold zippers on either side and the silver plate inside the heel. I’ve always found that Vince Camuto boots are quite comfortable.”

(J) Mega impact
Alexander Wang at Holt Renfrew, Yorkdale, $1,300
“These are for ultra fashion-forward people who wanna make a big fat fashion statement! We need these things to make us smile to get us through the season.”

(K) Working hard
Timberland at Getoutside, 3456 Yonge St., $149.99
“This is a very classy take on that construction boot. Great grip — this is the kind of traction you need in those icy conditions. Very functional.”

(L) Alpine approach
Cougar at Capezio, The Promenade, $175
“We love Cougar. These have a great tread, faux fur lining, and they’re waterproof! Run around town in them when it gets really icy and perilous.”

(M) Shine bright
Rene Caovilla at Davids, Bayview Village, $1,795
“The juxtaposition on this boot is fantastic: it’s a combat boot with the most deluxe jewel-encrusted cuff. What a statement they make.”
