Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Slim winter boots that have nubuck leather and microfleece, preventing moisture from seeping into your shoes.


    Promising review: "These boots are a great option if you don’t like the bulkiness of regular Sorel boots. They’re comfy and very warm. I agree with the other reviewers that you should size up. I usually wear a 7 and sometimes even a 6.5, but the 7.5 in this boot was perfect." —Cassie

    Get them from Amazon for $84.50+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in four colors).

    2. A pair of slip-on snow boots that are very lightweight, but have enough grip so you won't slip if there's ice on the ground.


    Promising review: "These are the best boots we have ever owned. I purchased this pair for my son. After wearing them just one time, I knew I had to have a pair of my own. We get lots and lots of snow. I wanted something quick to be able to throw on when headed out the door. One day, I had no socks on and went outside to shovel. I couldn't believe that my feet didn't get wet or cold the whole time. I LOVE THESE BOOTS!" —Angela Drain

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in women's sizes 5.5-12 and in men's sizes 4.5-14 and in 13 colors).

    3. A pair of lace-up boots with a microfleece lining you'll be blushing to put on in the morning when the weather's crappy.

    Native Shoes / Via

    Promising review: "I love these boots! I purchased a rose-color NorthFace jacket, and the these two go together so well! The boots are super stylish and perfect!" —PAcruisingirl

    Get them from Nordstrom for $95 (available in whole sizes 7-10 and in pink and gray).

    4. A pair of waterproof boots with "Omni-Tech" breathable seams to keep your toes comfy, but not overheated.


    Promising review: "So glad I ordered a half size up from my normal size. These fit great in the bigger size. They are SO WARM! I would buy an entire snowsuit made from whatever material is inside these boots! I use them to take daily walks with the dog and even on freezing mornings they have been so warm and comfy." —M. Wilson

    Get them from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in gray and black).

    5. A pair of leather booties that'll have you actually wishing for chilly temps and snow just so you can wear them more. / Via Sorel Footware

    Promising review: "I love these boots. I bought two pairs over the past two years and they're my go-to shoes! I love that they're waterproof. I live in the city so I didn't need a big bulky boot to tread through snow, just something that will get me through the slush and a bit of snow. Keeps my toes nice and warm!" —michaela

    Get them from Amazon for $69.97+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in 10 colors).

    6. These lace-up hiker boots you can wear while you climb a mountain — or while you run errands, if that's more your speed.


    Promising review: "I saw these and just couldn't resist. They are very comfortable and so cute! They resemble much more expensive hiking shoes but at 1/4 the price. I hike a lot and definitely wouldn't wear these hiking, however I did wear them on a hike/natural trail because I wasn't expecting to be doing that while visiting my friend, and I had no issues with them. My recommendation would be to wear them with higher socks or leggings to cover your ankles/parts of your leg that the boot would rub on." —coolbeans

    Get them from Target for $37.99 (available in sizes 5-12 and in four colors).

    7. A pair of rain boots with a removable fur-lined insole that you can keep in or take out depending on what the temperature is.


    Promising review: "I bought these to wear on a snowboarding trip. I wore them pre- and post-mountain, and they were perfect! I wear a solid 10, and the 10 fit nicely. I have narrow feet, and I was able to wear these with snowboarding socks, but they were snug but not uncomfortable. I bought a pair that are unlined as well, but I favor these because of the lining." —GANNP

    Get them from Amazon for $36.37+ (available in whole sizes 6-11 and in black, red, and grey sycamore).

    8. A pair of low-cut Timbs with seam-sealed soles and made of waterproof leather so you can comfortably wear them in all weather and inside all day.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get them from Amazon for $58.81+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 11 colors) or from Urban Outfitters for $130 (available in whole sizes 7-10 and in tan and black).

    9. An insulated snow boot with more than 2,000 five-star reviews raving about how warm and comfortable they are.

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE! These are super comfortable and incredibly warm. They're easy to adjust to slip on and off, yet fit snugly. I followed the advice to order half a size up, and I'm glad I did. I am typically a size 8, but I ordered an 8.5, and they fit perfectly. They're comfortable enough to walk in for long distances — great if you live in the city!" —Sara E. Guterbock

    Get them from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in eight colors).

    10. A sneaker boot that combines the two styles to create a unique look you can wear in weather up to -25 degrees.

    Ugg / Via

    Promising review: "I just bought these boots and have worn them to work. I work standing on my feet as well as walking for 11 hours, and my feet are nice and comfortable. I got them in the 8.5, and they fit perfect for my wide foot. They are comfortable, and men more than women have commented on how nice my 'boots' are. And when I say they are sneakers, they like them more. They are very futuristic. I love them. They keep my feet warm without getting overheated." —nana

    Get them from Nordstrom for $129.95 (available in sizes 5-12 and in four colors) or from Ugg for $130 (available in sizes 5-12 and in four colors).

    11. A pair of booties to help you conquer everyday life when you would rather go back to bed and hide under the covers until summer.


    Promising review: "This is by far the most comfortable boot I have ever owned! They fit great and feel amazing on my feet. Plus, they are definitely waterproof. I ore them recently during a bad storm, and my feet were comfy and dry the whole time. Never get rid of this product. I love them so much I bought myself two pairs!" —Ana16

    Get them from Nordstrom or from Sorel for $170 (available in sizes 5-11).

    12. A pair of "Omni-Heat" boots that reflect your own body heat so your feet are always the perfect temperature.


    Promising review: "These are excellent boots! These boots are A+A+A+ FIVE STARS. I hardly leave reviews, so when I receive something that is real nice, I like to leave nice feedback. I have a problem with my one foot from having surgery. I've had a hell of a time finding a warm, comfortable, lightweight boot this season. But I have to say, these Columbias take the cake. They are warm, comfy, easy to slip on and off, and true to size. I absolutely love them. Thank YOU, Columbia, for making such a great boot! They keep my feet dry and warm. I am really satisfied with purchase! Finally!" —Rae Rae

    Get them from Amazon for $69.94+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in white and black).

    13. A pair of Doc Marten combat boots so reliable you'll be wearing them for years.

    Promising review: "I'm in love. I'm never buying another brand of combat boots again. I'd been hesitant to buy Docs because of the price, but these were absolutely worth it. They have excellent support (comfortable enough to wear for eight-hour shifts on my feet), and they're grippy enough to handle snow, sleet, and New England winters. I tend to wear my shoes to death, but I've been wearing these pretty much daily for four months, and they're holding up well." —R

    Get them from Amazon for $65.14+ (available in sizes 5-13 and in 31 colors and patterns).

    14. A pair of foldable flap boots with a knitted sock lining to add some extra warmth around your ankles.


    Promising review: "These are super comfy, very sturdy, and really cute with leggings and an oversized sweater! The sweater cuff on the boots can kind of interfere with socks, but it's not a big deal. I love that they included extra laces so you have color options. The laces are ridiculously long, so I just wrap them around the top once, and they're perfect. I wish they had a little more padding on the inside, but they're still very comfortable. I'm disappointed this freakishly short winter means I have less time to wear them." —H. Katz

    Get them from Amazon for $32.44+ (available in European sizes 36-42 and in five colors).

    15. A pair of duck boots you can wear in the snow but also as things start to melt and you have to slosh through puddles.

    American Eagle

    Get them from American Eagle for $69.95 (available in whole size 5-11 and in olive and red).

    16. These floral winter boots to remind you that even on the worst of winter days, the sun will come out tomorrow and eventually bring some good weather along with it., Amazon

    Promising review: "These boots are fantastic! I have to walk my dogs in the mornings, sometimes in fresh snow. These boots keep my feet warm, are sturdy, and have a secure fit. (My feet don’t move around like in my Moon Boots.) And they look cute, too! I’m happy with my purchase." —E. Kooman

    Get them from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in nine colors and patterns).

    17. A pair of Chelsea slip-ons that have a sheepskin-lined insole so you get the warmth of a winter boot with the look of a regular one.


    Promising review: "I bought a size 6, and I'm usually an 8. I chose these to help me keep warm in Connecticut, and I'm so happy I did. My feet are always super toasty, which keeps the rest of my body warmer. They're incredibly durable too. They weigh a little more than an average shoe, and they're a bit bulkier of course. So be prepared when you're looking in the mirror. But if you're ok with a decently fashionable shoe and toasty warm feet, you wont be disappointed." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $209.95+ (available in sizes 5-13).

    18. A pair of boots with the fur that will have the whole club looking at you!

    American Eagle

    Promising review: "I love these! They are very cute and comfortable. I normally wear a 7.5 or 8 but the 7 fit me perfectly!" —ALYY

    Get them from American Eagle for $59.95 (available in whole sizes 5-11 and in gray, black, and tan).

    19. A short insulated pair you'll wear the heck out of when the temperature gets merlot than you can handle.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love these boots! They keep my feet nice and warm, and they are actually super comfortable to wear when I'm walking long distances to my classes! This is my best buy for shoes on Amazon yet!" —Lexi Cornwell

    Get them from Amazon for $89.95+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in six colors).

    20. A pair of Uggs so toasty that you won't care if people think they're "basic" because that just means that lots of people like them, and that's a good thing. / Via Ugg

    Promising review: "I have a pair of the classic short boots, which I love. I decided to try the Classic Mini II this time, and they are definitely my new favorite! The fit is perfect, and they are incredibly comfortable. The shorter style of the Mini II makes them perfect to wear with cropped or cuffed jeans and skirts, and the fact that they've been weather-treated already is great. I love these!" —Lauren Bogan

    Get them from Amazon for $139.95+ (available in whole sizes 5-12 and in eight colors).

    21. A mid-calf waterproof boot you can wear despite the elements and then all day at work because nobody has time or energy to bring shoes to change into.


    Promising review: "This is my second pair of Blondo boots. They are sturdy, well made, and very stylish. They do not leak and are very warm. My first pair are tall and have had for three years. I've never had a leak in them. I wanted a shorter pair and knew exactly what brand I wanted. You won't be disappointed." —loveblondo

    Get them from Nordstrom for $139.90 (available in sizes 5.5-12).

    22. An insulated Moon Boot ready to keep your feet warm in up to -20 degrees and give you a super-retro look.


    Promising review: "I love these boots! They are amazing, waterproof, snowproof, and so damn CUTE! <3 <3 A few reviews suggested getting them one size bigger than your original shoe size; I did that and turned out that they were big, so I returned them and got one of my size. I still wear double socks that are really thick, and they fit comfortably! My suggestion: Choose your original shoe size, it's more than enough. I love these boots. They are light and easy to walk with. There's no snow hill big enough to stop me from walking!" —HHH8209

    Get it from Amazon for $50.68+ (available in European sizes 35-47 and in 17 colors).

    23. A pair of wedge booties because winter boots don't have to be big and clunky to be practical. These babies are cute and functional!

    Sorel Footware / Via

    Promising review: "This is the perfect stylish winter boot! It doesn’t feel like you're walking on a wedge at all, and you feel very supported. I wear them with jeans cuffed and with black dress pants to trek to work in inclement weather. They're not clunky like regular snow boots." —Babsjh

    Get them from Nordstrom for $200 (available in sizes 5-12).

    24. Some waterproof boots you can wear during all your cold-weather activities — from sledding to checking out holiday lights to building a snowman.

    Promising review: "I love these boots! I fee like they look much more expensive and nicer than the $40 I paid for them. The fleece lining is warm and the zipper side is awesome because I can just slip them on without tying the laces. I have slim calves, but I can absolutely see these fitting any calf size since you can lace and size that part yourself. They aren't heavy or bulky and keep my toes toasty warm." —Alissa

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 22 colors).

    25. A pair of tan winter booties with slip-resistant soles and faux shearling to handle every little thing winter throws your way.


    Promising review: "These were more than I had hoped for. They're easy on and off. They look like they will hold up in rain and snow. They have a great non-slip tread on the bottom. Nice-looking boot. I bought narrow width, and they fit perfect and are true to size. I love that they have a variety of widths and sizes." —Luckey

    Get them from Amazon for $62.97+ (available in sizes 5-12, in narrow and wide, and in five colors and styles).

    26. A chunky mid-heel boot that will give your winter boot style a fashionable ~lift~.


    Promising review: "I love this shoe soooooo much! They fit me perfectly. When I tried them on, I did not want to take them off. I even sent a picture to my husband. The shoes are a little hard to get into but once they are on your feet, you feel great. There is also a little smell when you open the package, but that goes away after a while. I LOVE MY SHOES!!!! I'm so happy that I bought them!!!" —Deverley

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes 4-11 and in five colors).

    27. A pair of knee-high boots to protect you even more when it snows 3 feet and you have to shovel your way out of your house. (I've been there, it's not great.)


    Promising review: "I love these boots. The only drawback is they are a little hard to get on because the ankle part is a little small, and there's not a lot to grab onto to pull them up. They are still super cute!! Plus, they're warm and waterproof. Once they are on, they fit really well." —BChild

    Get them from Amazon for $139.72+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in light brown, dark brown, and black).

    28. A pair of faux suede ankle booties so cute and so cheap you might as well buy two different colors!


    Promising review: "These boots are so warm and stylish. I love that they keep my feet warm when it's cold, and they also have fantastic tread on them for the snow." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in nine colors).

    29. A pair of these wool-lined boots, because your feet truly deserve to shine always, but especially in the winter.


    Promising review: "This are the cutest boots! I really love them, and they are super comfortable and warm. They fit great and are true to size! Super smooth." —CCCZ

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in four colors and styles).

    30. A mid-calf waterproof boot just in case there's a huge snowstorm and you have to scrape the ice off your car.

    Promising review: "These are awesome winter boots for shopping, running errands, or work. They keep my feet warm and are snug. I like that they are not clunky and lace up. They are also stylish so I don't need to bring other shoes to change into." —Linds

    Get them from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in whole sizes 6-11 and in four colors).

    And now with these boots, just like Elsa, the cold will never bother you again!
