No matter how excited we are for the holiday season ahead, there’s no denying that we’re not necessarily thrilled about the cold weather on the horizon. Once the excitement of breaking out well-worn boots and newly-purchased coats wears off, we find ourselves dreaming of the warmer summer months.

While buying a whole new pair of shoes can be an investment, adding a couple new hosiery options is a cheap-and-cheerful way to maximize your footwear collection.
