    Warm Winter Jacket

    Weatherproof Boots

    These boots are waterproof, which is so necessary for a Capital Region winter. Without a doubt, we will see tons of slush and wetness that is just the worst to walk in. Don't worry, this year you'll be prepared with your cool (and practical) Timberland boots.
