I’ve been wearing my Sperry Topsider Winter Cove boots for almost 20 hours straight, and my feet are thanking me for it! In getting ready for my two-week ski trip to Europe, I was trying to decide which boots to bring at the last minute. It was down to either my leather “paddock” style boots [...]

Smartwool NTS Mid 250 Reversible Pattern Cuffed Beanie

I didn’t realize a hat could truly keep my head warm in extreme temperatures until I tested Smartwool’s NTS Mid 250 Reversible Pattern Cuffed Beanie during Minnesota’s polar vortex last winter. Wow!
