With frigid temperatures sweeping across the country this week, there’s perhaps no better time to invest in a pair of solid winter boots. Fortunately, thanks to a major sale at Lands’ End, the perfect pair isn’t even much of an investment. The brand’s duck boots — which we’ve written about before — are currently just $60 (or 40 percent off) and have everything you need to survive the most brutal winter days: The waterproof rubber upper keeps your feet dry through snow and slush, while the slip-resistant outsole protects you from slipping on icy patches. Best of all, the shoes are insulated and lined with soft flannel, so they’re as warm and cozy as they are functional. A nearly identical dupe to the popular L.L.Bean duck boots — which no fewer than six discerning Strategist staffers own — this pair will get you through the season at a fraction of the price.
