I can’t imagine ranking so high up on Santa’s Nice List that I’m able to deserve a gift as luxurious as a pair of boots from J. Mendel’s collaboration with Hunter…. but hey, a girl can dream! As if Hunter Boots weren’t iconic and fabulous enough on their own, J. Mendel takes them up a notch! Lined with genuine shearling with muskrat trim (sadly, no faux fur here), these stylish beauties combine J. Mendel’s designer touch with the reliable functionality and durability of everything you know and love about Hunter. Available in white and black rubber, as well as tall or short versions of the limited-edition design, these boots are the ultimate winter must-have for anyone who frequently has to brave harrowing weather on her daily commute (and for those who just want to look the part). Snow bunny inspired but undeniably practical to boot, these babies come with an equally impressive price tag. If your shopping budget doesn’t have room for a $795 pair of boots… like I said, a girl can dream!
