We know, we know—thinking about snow boots in July is depressing. But before you know it, you’ll be jonesing for a new parka only to realize that the prices mirror your biweekly paycheck. Take advantage of the low demand now and stock up on everything you need for cooler weather while the prices are super-slashed. And don’t worry: Just because you buy the boots doesn’t mean you need to look at them until you’re good and ready.
