Winter boots are a cold-weather staple, but they can feel clunky and are difficult to style with everyday outfits — so much so that I often change into new shoes once I get into my office during New York City's chillier months. Talk about cumbersome! So, when I heard that a popular Italian shoe brand released a "city-chic hiker boot" that's comfortable enough to wear for hours on end while remaining stylish enough to show off around town, I jumped at the chance to try it out. Right now, the style is $100 less with code HOLIDAY100; but hurry, because the deal only lasts through December 13.

The Alpi Due boot is handcrafted in small batches in Pisa, Italy so the style tends to go out of stock fast. "This boot was an instant sellout when we first introduced it, and it's no surprise with the long list of features it boasts," wrote Maria, M.Gemi's founder. "With comfort, warmth, and style in spades, it's the perfect cut to complement everything from jeans to pants to dresses."

It has a nubuck leather upper and comes in five different colors, including light pink, olive green, and grey. I got a black pair, which features a shearling lining around the heel, supple leather on the inside, and a 1.75-inch platform sole. I found that the leather lining made the boots comfortable straight out of the box and they only became softer every time I took them for a spin, so I didn't need to wear socks. There's also a rubber mudguard and lugs on the sole for traction and protection during inclement weather.

Styling the boots with my winter outfits was simple because they're so cute. The cream teddy detailing added a level of coziness that I loved, and I adjusted the fit depending on what type of pants I was wearing. I also appreciated that my shoes came with two different types of laces to make the boots even more versatile.

It's really no wonder why these boots don't stay in stock — they're the perfect combination of style and practicality. And if the price tag scares you, don't let it. I know that these will be in my closet for at least a decade and will get lots of use in that time, which brings their cost per wear down significantly. Do yourself a favor and get a pair while they're discounted with code HOLIDAY100 at checkout.
