Casual Winter Shoes?

Any suggestions for casual winter shoes for up north? We get very cold temps and snow for about 5 months. I'm looking for something nicer than tennis shoes but not as dressy as heels. I have black boots, but want something non-boot. Basically something to run errands, go to casual dinners, wear over to a friends' apartment... Picturing wearing with jeans mostly, potentially slacks to work (for the loafers)?

I was looking at loafers and oxfords... are they in? Classic? Able to be styled multiple ways? I'm not very good at F&B, but I try to look put together. I definitely need something that's okay to wear with trouser socks. 

I was looking at (sorry, no PIP):

Oxfords in brown > http://www.zappos.com/clarks-beals-redwood-tumbled

Oxfords in taupe > http://www.zappos.com/easy-spirit-afteryou-taupe-multi-leather 

Loafers in black > http://www.zappos.com/ak-anne-klein-lizbeth-black-patent

Loafers in black or brown > http://www.zappos.com/nine-west-succeed-medium-brown-leather

Any suggestions if you don't like these? Thank you for the fashion help!

Re: Casual Winter Shoes?

  • The nine west penny loafers are actually trendy right now. I have a feeling you are NOT trying to be ironic.

     

    Maybe casual shoes by Keen, merrell or dansko? think mountain town or Navajo punk!

    Nope, not trying to be ironic. I haven't seen many loafers around here, so wanted to make sure they're not still though of as frumpy.

    What is Navajo punk?

    it's a little style trend.

    Mixing some earthy, native influences w/ your casual clothes. like leather, american Indian beads, silver jewels and feathers? but casual rockerish booties or clogs? denim, tee & a fur vest etc.

    Now that I think about it, that makes sense. Not really my style, though, but thanks for the suggestion!

  • Sorry, I am not a fan of any of those. They all look like men's shoes.

     

    What about something like this: http://www.zappos.com/product/7879900/color/321311

    Cute, but out of my price range. Hopefully there's something similar out there. Thanks! 

    ETA: What about these?  http://www.zappos.com/lifestride-decatur-bronze-fantozzi-shiny?zlfid=111&recoName=zap_pdp_cross

  • What about some type of a smoker flat like this?  Steve Madden is making some too.  They cover more foot than a normal flat and can be done with trouser socks.  I'm not a fan of anything else posted.  In the winter, I switch between Uggs (for function), leather boots of varying heights, and Pumas.  North Face makes running shoes with thinsulate that are great for winter too.  I'll prpbably get some kind of a smoker flat when I get bored with my current options.
