Never say never. Truth be told, personally, I’m not much of a shearling boot / classic UGG fan.
A few seasons ago, I stumbled upon a pair of Zadig & Voltaire gray shearling booties with the right amount of edge and back zipper slimness to avoid the generic girl at the mall feel.
It was right after my foot surgery and I was still pretty swollen so the soft bootie was exactly what I needed or more important, what I could squeeze into at the time.

No longer reserved for trotting back and forth to Pilates class, these “no sock needed” boots are more of my everyday work from home style than I would have ever dreamed of.
I almost feel sorry for the lonely rows of boots in my closet that I just don’t bother to kick around in.
I’ve revived the lining with sheepskin insoles (my secret weapon to comfy & warm winter boots), but it’s finally time to be on the lookout for a replacement pair of boots.
What do you think about these Frye ‘Valerie’ Shearling Lined Booties, pictured left?
They’ve got some biker toughness, a back zipper and look pretty comfy.
For less of a kick around feel, I also love The Pistol bootie from Acne, pictured right, that comes with a shearling lining this season.
