With the weatherman predicting triple digit temperatures for this coming week it may seem a bit premature to begin the search for new winter boots. But never the one to follow social mores, I came across these beauties in my quest for "Eskimo boots." Mukluks are traditional soft Eskimo boots, often fur-lined with and made of sealskin or reindeer skin. Now that the trend has reached it's peak and begun it's inevitable popularity decline, the time to swoop upon this modern moose hide variety is now. It's 20 times less bulky than last year's rabbit fur version — with the added appeal of not appearing as if you've strapped road kill to your feet. Weather proofing costs extra, D'oh! — but it's still a reasonable purchase for $250.
