I will be lucky enough to spend the week of Christmas and Boxing Day in lovely London and was just wondering what kind of boots to bring. I've heard from others that it can be icy/slushy and at the very least, quite chilly and wet. Is it sufficient to bring along a pair of waterproof leather boots or should I bring a warmer pair (such as a pair of uggs with more traction on the bottom)? Part of me abhors the idea of lugging around two pairs of boots on my trip, but the other part of me would rather bring a pair I know I'll be comfortable in than shell out a ton of money purchasing a pair while I'm there.
Your wisdom and experience are much appreciate. Thank you for your help!
