With the holidays and winter solstice now behind us, we’re officially settled in for winter and, of course, now need to dress the part. Whether you’re team #LetItSnow or team #StayInside, one thing is guaranteed: When the snow does come, you’ll want to be prepared. And chic.
While some snow boots are clunky, outdated, or unflattering, there are some beautiful and fashionable pieces out there that can turn a snow day into a snow-YAY. So, we searched the internet high and low to find some of our favorite snow boots you’ll actually want to wear this winter — even if it isn’t snowing.
SOREL Joan of Arctic Waterproof Insulated Winter Boot
These seem to be a fan-favorite on the streets of New York City, and for a good reason. They’re neutral yet chic — with a waterproof base and an upper faux fur lining. These winter boots are insulated for warmth and have extra-grip traction to avoid slipping and sliding. The inner boot insulation is washable, while the exterior sole is handcrafted with a waterproof, vulcanized rubber shell for traction and durability. They’re available in whole or half sizes from 5-12 and feature 12 color combinations that suit any style.
The North Face Women's ThermoBall Pull-On Insulated Boot
They may look a lot like sneakers, but they do so much more. The easy-to-pull-on insulated boot is water-resistant, made of 100% recycled PET ripstop material to help keep your feet dry, and features OrthoLite Eco LT cushioning in the footbed for extra comfort. Available in Black, Taupe/Green, Graphite Purple/Eggplant, and Vintage White, they’re versatile, neutral, and will go with anything.
Hunter Women’s Insulated Short Snow Boots
When you first think of Hunter, you probably associate them with their iconic rain boots, but it turns out Hunter makes an excellent snow boot, too! With a sleek-yet-functional silhouette, Hunter’s Insulated Short Snow Boots are handcrafted with fleece lining and have a hydro guard waterproof membrane with an Ortholite footbed for comfort and protection. They even say you can wear them in temperatures as low as -7°F! Available in Black or Arctic Moss Green and whole sizes only.
INUIKII Leather-Paneled Snow Boots
The perfect combination of fashion-forward and function, these green snow boots by INUIKII feature a shearling neck and leather-paneled base for warm insulation. Shearling lined with a shearling insole and rubber sole, the signature wrap-at-the-ankle lacing elevates the look and fit of the boot without adding too much bulk. They’re available in full sizes, and it’s recommended to size up, as the lining can cause them to have a more narrow fit.
Moncler Insolux Down-Trimmed Snow Boots
Moncler has taken the cold-weather world by storm the past few years, and these snow boots are no exception. All-white with reflective silver trim, rubber soles provide traction and water resistance while side drawcords keep warmth in and cold out. Trimmed with leather and made of technical fabric, this gorgeous pair is filled with down for extra warmth. Whether you’re trudging through the snow or are looking for the part fireside, they’re an indulgent must-have for the snow season.
CC-Los Women’s Ultra Lightweight Winter Snow Boots
Bargain hunting? We found a winner. At first, we thought the price was too good to be true, but with 4.5/5 stars on Amazon and nearly 200 reviews, they’re definitely worth a try! With removable cushion insoles, these lightweight boots are stain and wrinkle-resistant and are perfectly chic. While we probably wouldn’t wear these out in a blizzard, reviews say they’re great in light snow and sleet and are super comfy.
Ross & Snow Lucky Boot
These leather moto-inspired boots by Ross & Snow are fully waterproof and lined with shearling. Made in Italy with dyed sheep fur originated in Ireland, they have a removable cushioned insole and an easy-to-pull-on style with a perfectly rounded toe and chunky EVA lug sole. With an ankle buckle and double calf buckle for both style and warmth, they are available in half sizes, 5-13, and Cognac and Black colors.
SOREL Women’s Explorer II Carnival Cozy Boot
This pair checks all the boxes — cozy, cute, and lots of options. Available in all Black, Gray, and beautiful combos including a Sage/Dark Stone, Tan/Brown, Light Brown/Cream and Charcoal/Cream, these boots are waterproof, comfortable, and super adorable. A one-inch heel and one-inch platform gives the boots an edgy look, while the faux-shearling cuff and tongue provides warmth, and character. Whether you pair these with jeans, leather leggings, or old-fashioned snow pants, you really can’t go wrong.
