How Adulting Helped Me Find The Perfect Winter Boots

Winter is coming whether you're ready for the weather or not. You see what I did there ;)

Partnering up with Zappos and Kamik pushed me to find my inner adult just a little bit more, and it was a welcomed challenge.

As the temperature slowly begins to drop, I'm reminded that my not so favorite season is heading our way over here on the east coast. In a move to be a more mature and ready adult, I've been trying to tick off the list of things that I'm going to need, when that inevitable harsher weather rolls around.

Winter coat, ✓. Warm pants, ✓. Sweaters, ✓. Real winter boots, NOPE.

Yes, I have some cute fall ones, but nothing thats actually made for the snow.

Thats when I headed over to Zappos, as it's become a personal favorite recently. It's the perfect one-stop-online-shop for the modern man, in finding all of the essentials. The fact that they promise fast and free shipping, a 365-day return policy, and amazing customer service doesn't hurt one bit. Especially when you're like me, and don't ever know what size shoe you need, so you have to have them send a second pair, which they did in 2 days without any cost. Thank you Zappos!

Anyways back to the boots.

As I scrolled through Zappos' boot section, I came across these awesome Kamik Yukon 6 Boots. Kamik is a Canadian brand that got stellar reviews all around, and if I'm being completely honest, there's something about them being Canadian that made me feel like they know what they're talking about when it comes to winter weather. 

And I was right.

I finally had to whip these bad boys out here in NYC, as we recently had our first taste of winter with a dark, gloomy, and rainy day. My Kamiks' kicked serious ass, as I unintentionally strolled through puddles, and intentionally jumped around in all different types of terrain to truly test out my Kamiks

After my 770 mile hike along the PCT, you bet your ass I test out my shoes hardcore now. There's nothing worse than hiking around in shoes that aren't right for your feet, I PROMISE you. Anddddd, while I may not be hiking in my Kamiks, I will be walking all over NYC in them, so I was beyond jazzed when my Kamiks totally passed with flying colors.

I have to admit, getting ready with some time and preparation aka "adulting," feels really good. I hate rushing and stressing, and Zappos and Kamik have taken both of those things out of my life for when Snowmagdeon 2 hits.

Now all thats left to do is wait for it to fully come. I'm not pumped for the snow, but I'm pumped to be 100% ready!

Out of curiosity, have any of you guys owned, or tried out Kamik? Thoughts? Comments? If you haven't, then you have to head over to Zappos and check out Kamik for yourself. 

Remember winter is coming whether you like it or not. #ZapposStyle #Sponsored #StepOutside
