Top Product: UGG Adirondack III | $250 | Macy’s
The fact is that sometimes it’s cold even when it’s not meant to be, so grabbing yourself some of the best winter boots makes sense, even if it’s hot outside at the moment. That’s especially true as you can occassionaly grab yourself a proper bargain in the warmer months as companies know they need to help to sell warmer footwear. We’ve decided to go ahead and find the best winter boots on the internet for you no matter your preferences and needs.
Best Winter Boots for Women: UGG Adirondack III
Don’t shy away from the Ugg Adirondack III waterproof boots just based on your preconceived notions of the brand itself. UGG is a great company that makes quality boots that hold up. I’ve had several pairs over the years. I took a pair to college in the snowy mountains of Virginia, and they served me well. The Adirondack III is one of the company’s best-rated multifunctional cold-weather boots. Keep your feet toasty, dry, and snug during any storm.
UGG is known for its plush interior, and these are no exception. Aussie sheep’s wool adorns the outside and interior, making it feel like you are walking on a cloud. The spider rubber outsole and tread keep you safe from slippery situations. If UGG is good enough to rep the G.O.A.T. Tom Brady, they’ll take care of you too.
Best Winter Boots for Men: Sorel Men’s Winter Boots
The Sorel boots are for those who want a little more space. This is especially helpful if you like wearing thick warm socks. The Sorel’s are one of Amazon’s best sellers as well. One reviewer noted, “It’s as if I’m walking around with miniature boats on my feet!” Well, all aboard captain! With that extra space, these are consistently rated as one of the comfiest winter boots on the market. But these boots are also a great choice for those with more conventionally sized feet who like to pile on the socks.
Best Winter Boots for the Eco-Conscious: Cariuma Vegan Cold Weather Boots
Cariuma is one of my favorite companies. It’s known for fighting against wasteful practices rampant in the fashion industry. It also just launched its first-ever Vegan Cold Weather Boot. The insoles are lined for added comfort and warmth, they’re water-resistant and designed to keep you toasty no matter the climate. Not only are they inspired by vintage mountaineering designs, but the sneaker boots are also manufactured from recyclable materials and boast a high-performance vegan suede. The vegan shearling lining is stylish, luxurious, and most importantly, cozy. They’re available in both “camel” (light brown) and black colorways. As a commitment to its environmental consciousness, 10 trees are planted for every pair of shoes sold. That’s a lot of trees!
Best Winter Boots for Kids: Columbia Youth Powderbug Plus II-K Snow Boot
Keeping the little ones warm is vital with their tiny extremities. Columbia’s Powderbug Plus II snow boot tops many lists for a good reason. Columbia knows how to make the perfect gear for any weather situation, so you can trust that expertise went into these boots too. These are easy-to-slip-on boots, so no expect no fuss when it’s time to get ready.
There’s an adjustable hook and loop strap at the ankle to keep them secure but comfy. The durable outer shell is constructed from waterproof synthetic leather, and recycled nylon shields against any snow or winter rainstorm. The tikes will be snuggly with no complaints. I recommend sizing up to grow into them and for maximum comfort with thick socks.
Best Luxury Winter Boots: See by Chloé Block Heel Boots
This Chloé Block Heel Boot is an essential shoe for anyone searching for an everyday winter boot. Add a little luxury to the rotation and don’t feel bad about the price. These boots are a more affordable option for those looking at designer brands. The fake shearling-lined rubber boot has a non-slip heel that will instantly enhance your style instantly.
Best Winter Boots for Comfort: Skechers Sargeants-Verdict Waterproof Boot
Skechers’ Sergeants Verdict Rugged Ankle Boot tops a lot of lists for comfort. If you have a long trek in bad weather, these are the boots you need. The midsole is cushioned and even has shock absorption with a steel shank to keep you stable on snow and ice. These waterproof beauties are tough, with the seams reinforced to keep everything you don’t want in and out. The lining inside is cushy and warm—everything your feet need in the winter.
