Women’s boots generally fall into two distinct categories: fashion or comfort. Teva’s Jade Cove High Boot might be one of the few exceptions. It’s stylish enough for most occasions but still offers the protection of made-for-the-outdoors footwear.

The Jade Cove High Boot is made from waterproof leather and has an attractive waterproof suede collar that hits just below the knee. The collar includes an elastic seam for adjustable fit, with a side toggle for added detail. The boot zips on the side, which keeps the sleek look while also allowing you to easily pull the footwear on and off.

Concerned about falling on the ice or a wet surface? The boot’s rubber sole grips slippery surfaces and maintains its durability through most outdoor adventures. It also includes a unique tread design that allows versatile movement. It’s even comfortable enough for long hikes. The specially designed insole with ethylene-vinyl acetate, or EVA, foam in the midsole replicates the feel of Teva’s famous flip-flops. The boot’s synthetic microfiber lining keeps legs and feet warm without overheating.

Jade Cove High Boot is available in black and brown, in women’s sizes 7 to 11. Purchase online at Teva’s website, www.teva.com, or visit the site to find other retailers. Price is $170.
