Each winter, students, faculty and staff adorn various articles of clothing on the trek through Michigan weather around campus. Whether driving, walking or even biking, people will make the journey to campus despite the conditions. However, the footwear that facilitates the journey can be surprising.
Each choice of footwear is a visual testament to practicality and personal style in the face of snow, ice, rain and recently, mud. From classic snow boots to cheetah print sneakers and red bedazzled high tops, faculty, staff and students showcase an array of winter shoes.
Despite the challenging muddy conditions and ongoing construction on campus, style remains evident; Dr. Meert’s footwear looks well-maintained through it all.
“I only wear these indoors; they aren’t worn outside, these are just for class,” Meert said.
