Giving poverty the boot: That’s the mission of Roma Boots, who donates a pair of rain boots to a child in need – particularly those living in cold or wet climates – for every pair sold. Plus, 10% of all sales proceeds goes to the Roma for All Foundation, which helps educate children in impoverished communities. Roma’s boots for kids and adults are made of natural rubber and feature a quick-dry cotton lining and a three-layer insole for comfort.
What’s in your closet or stashed in your attic could be the next star in your decor. These boots were made for this bookshelf and its fun, eclectic aesthetic. Interior designer Jade Joyner of Metal + Petal in Athens, Ga., used these childhood boots as a personal touch with an additional jolt of color, in front of the lively wallpaper with coral hues.
The entryway of this ski chalet in Whitefish, Montana offers up plenty of storage space for coats, hats, scarves and equipment. Nooks beneath the benches keep shoes and boots accessible, yet out of the way.
The corner shelves on this mudroom unit are the perfect place for mail, chargers, even a snack for four-legged friends. For pulling on and off shoes (or catching up on a favorite book), there's a bench with a comfy cushion.
