From October to March, I live in my boots. They protect me from the chill of the wind and transition from jeans to dresses with ease. But I longed for a little insulation to keep wind, rain, or sea spray from sneaking into the boot tops so I whipped up these quick knit boot toppers. They work equally well over fine leather boots or practical rain and sailing all-weather boots.
