Time is running out before the world is covered in a grey-brown snow sludge that you’ll want nowhere near you. Sadly, to get to where you need to go, you’ll have to face the elements, but that’s where platform winter boots come in and save the day. Adding a little more chunk to your soles does even more than add height. The extra cushioning makes them incredibly comfortable to wear day after day, storm after storm.
