The Vermont from Eric Michael is serious about two things: fashion and function. This aptly-named winter boot is ready for what you have to throw at it, whether that’s snowballs or pelting rain, thanks to the breathable waterproof membrane built into this beauty. Supple full grain leather is gorgeous in either Sleek Black or Chocolate Brown, with complementary metal hardware in the buckling strap detail. Clean and elegant lines help elongate the leg with elastic inset panels that also help accommodate a larger calf. The inner zip makes for easy on and off, while the rubber outsole takes on the elements.
