I have 15 pair of boots. Ironically, because I have so many boots in my closet (there is some spillover when I am just too lazy to wedge them into the one unique configuration, including 2 pair jammed on an amp, that provides them all shelter), I don't have room for both snow boots and rain boots. Amanda turned me on to these awesome fleece boot socks for only $8, which convert my awesomely cool rain boots into awesomely toasty snow boots. When I got home yesterday from the city's first snow, for once I was not walking on stumpy ice feet and badly in need of a cup of Godiva cocoa. So there is that downside.
