You know when winter rolls around and you realize you've spent years building your coat collection, but have failed to get shoes that will actually keep your feet warm when it drops below five degrees? That's where I'm currently at.

Somehow, I've amassed an obscene range of black leather boots, all of which are incredibly cute, but also leave my toes just south of hypothermia. I'm sure now you're like "oh, just wear thick socks," but trust me, it doesn't work. I'm in need of a serious upgrade.

When I was a kid, I wanted a pair of Moon Boots so badly. I was obsessed with Bratz dolls and their oversized shoes, so naturally, I wanted a pair of obscenely big boots to stomp around in. Sadly, I then moved to Indonesia and spent the rest of my years growing up in warm climates, until I eventually moved to London three years ago and finally found a reason to buy winter clothing.

Now, I'm preparing for my first real venture into the snow since I was a pre-teen, and I think I've finally found an excuse to buy a pair of Moon Boots. What's the point of going skiing if you're not looking your best on the slopes?

Moon Boots' chunky silhouette has become synonymous with winter all over the world, so much so that plenty of brands have collaborated with the label as well as created their own version of the snow boot. You can get a luxury Fendi monogram version, or a pair coated entirely in Swarovski crystals if you wish.

Created in the '70s, the Moon Boot became popular after the Apollo 11 moon landing, and eventually resurfaced in the early 2000s. Initially, they became the perfect shoe for après ski, but later transitioned into a shoe for both city and snow.

Worn by Y2K icons including Paris Hilton, Snooki, Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian, and more back in the day, the boots are now making a return with full force. I mean, Dua Lipa just wore an amazing pair of GCDS Hello Kitty Moon Boots, and Mariah Carey sported an all-white pair.

As Y2K fashion continues to infiltrate today's fashion and slowly becomes luxury-fied, we know for certain that Moon Boots are the next big trend to resurface. You heard it here first.

Now all I need to figure out is what color to get before I finally go skiing this weekend and fulfill my childhood fashion fantasy. Or perhaps, I need multiple?
