If you hate people complimenting your clothing and your style, then keep scrolling, because this shopping roundup of winter shoes does not mess around. This shoe shopping haul features all the shoes you would want in a dream winter wardrobe and then some. Keeping a variety of climates in mind, ahead you will see everything from dreamy holiday heels to chunky weather-proof boots and each style is more eye-catching than the next. 

In order to stay on the compliments theme, I will admit that some of the shoes ahead might not look like the most practical option, but that wasn't really the goal. While there are certainly some versatile and reasonable soles in here (flat boots, house shoes, etc.), I wanted to also throw in some shoes that simply put a smile on your face and will make others feel so strongly about your footwear selection, the can't help but come up to you to say something.
