Last Minute Boots for Snow

I recently found out that I will be going skiing in a couple of days and only have today to pick up some boots I can wear in the snow. I am hoping to buy boots that are functional enough to wear around the mountain and also look at least somewhat decent with jeans. I wear APC rescues and generally have a bunch of sweaters and shirts from Odin.

I have access to most stores in midtown and downtown Manhattan, which means pretty much any mall wear type store as well as most specialty places. I would like to try and keep the cost to under $200 because I cant see this being that versatile an article of clothing but if someone has a great idea I might be willing to pay more.

Haha, ski boots I am covered on. I am hoping that these will be boots I can wear in the snow both up in Vermont when off the mountain and around NYC when the weather is horrible.

good luck finding any 'last minute'

all week people were looking for snow boots, granted i work in the shoe department at Target and i am in Omaha not Manhattan... but if we were out all week I can only assume stores in Manhattan are so picked over already or out of all common sizes.

so like I said good luck
