Today's Butterfly sponsored by:

I have to admit I'm a bit late to this particular trend, when this 'comfy' boot craze began for some reason I didn't jump on the bandwagon. I never even tried a pair on! SAY WHAT???? I know RIGHT!?! I don't know why, I just never got around to trying them on.

This winter Mother Nature has hit 'The Big Apple' with a vengeance. Apparently she's really mad at New York. Today the weather was an awful, miserable, icy, slippery MESS! I can't even sugar coat this one, it's UGLY out!

The one thing that is certain about this City is that it never stops! We didn't get the nickname, 'The City That Never Sleeps' for nothing. Nothing closed, and the commute did not shut down. I thought for a minute about whipping out a sled and putting an ad in the paper for a Husky Dog....But I digress....

Thankfully I didn't end up needing that sled or those Husky Dogs! And thats all thanks to Bearpaw! They sent me their Bella Boot about two weeks ago, and honestly I haven't taken them off since I received them. I now get that whole wearing them all day even as slippers thing! They are absolutely out the box comfy. They are that kind of comfortable that usually a shoe feels like right before you need to replace them. That perfectly broken in perfection! As you all know I don't have the easiest feet to shop for, high instep, lack of an arch for me the whole advice about shopping late afternoon  for shoes is a must. And while I didn't have to brave the stores to shop for these, I can tell you honestly, that I would have gladly, they are literally that comfy! And now I want one in every color!

Bella, The Boot, Not the Twilight Character!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Genuine double-face sheepskin upper, lining and footbed

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Color: Eggplant

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Sheepskin lining regulates body temperature to keep your feet warm

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Sheepskin footbed provides additional softness and reduces foot fatigue

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Rubber outsole is lightweight and flexible on many surfaces

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 1/2" heel

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 10.00" shaft height

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 18.00 oz.

My Take


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Comfort! These boots are super comfortable, they stand up to the cold and wind, and keep you warm, without being heavy. You can walk comfortable and not feel like you are walking in molasses or tar. They are so comfortable you just want to move, move, move!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - The Color! I love the eggplant color! But then again, I'm definitely a purple lover, so Bella in Eggplant just 'fits'

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Warm! These are everything you want in a boot, toasty, but not so over heated hot that as soon as you get indoors again you want to take them off. I've experienced boots where when I get into the bus or train I'd get so hot with them on I just wanted them off, but would have to wait until I got to the office. These are perfect. I honestly regret not getting into this trend sooner, but I can tell you I am now totally spoiled!


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - There is only one major con  I now want one in EVERY color, and I do mean every color!

So usually I like to set trends and not follow them, but in this case I happily make an exception! Despite Mother's Nature's Best, I braved the storm, and had a great hair day too, more on that to come!
