Having just recently come back from a balmy negative-two degrees (and layer-upon-layer of ice and snow) in Maine, I’ve had to seriously re-think the way I see winter boots. I’m spoiled by my two-week-long visits to snow, followed and preceded by sunshine and the occasional thunderstorm. I had no idea a brutal Winter meant sayonara to high heels (and really all shoes without a rugged bottom and thermal lining). A great pair (or two) of warm (the more lining, the better) and reliable (comfort is key) Winter boots is essential in any snowy climate, and a bottom with plenty of tread is essential for klutz’s like me (I learned that the hard way slipping up and down the icy hills of Boston … I now fully understand why they call it “Beacon Hill”.) And after rounding up my favorite snow-ready boots a few years back (just before I jetted off to Alt Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah), I decided to update the list with a few of my favorite winter-wear cold-weather boot styles.
This cold-weather boots post has been updated as of November 2018.
In addition to being super functional, and basically the only way to go in ice and snow, the season’s cold-weather boots pack plenty of style. I’ve found everything from leopard print to tartan print, couture, high and low, and everything in between.
