A shortage of snow boots?

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The search for snow boots is one I have experienced first-hand this year. When boots first hit stores in the fall I said, 'I'm going to wait till they go on sale.' Big mistake! As a result I've ended up searching high and low for a pair in my size to try to protect my feet from the elements, and turns out I'm not alone.

Crystal Reyes has been on a hunt for waterproof snow boots. And in a season when they're more a necessity than a luxury it has not been easy. She told us she went to three stores and couldn't find boots in her size.

Orva shoes on the Upper East Side can't keep popular women's snow boots in stock, according to manager Steve Aizer. He said a shipment sells out within 24 hours. He said stores in the Midwest and even the South are also sold out.

For many styles, really big or really small boots are all that's left.

Eastern Mountain Sports said it sold out of most sizes earlier than expected.

The North Face said the same.

And not just women are desperate to protect their feet. Men are saying they are having trouble, too.

Ordering early for next year is one idea.

As for me: I went on eBay where I wound up paying more, but, hey, that's the price for keeping your feet warm and dry this season.
