    1. Colorful, fur-lined frosty boots with a quick closure that'll easily slip on and off to conquer the snow with style and vibrance.


    Promising review: First off, let me start by saying I HATE the snow. But since I was being dragged there I bought some snow clothes and these boots are amazing! They fit great, the color is adorable (I got bright pink), and I did not feel ANY cold. I would recommend these to anyone!" —Ana g

    2. Block heel Chelsea boots for a timeless look you can dress up or down no matter the weather. They're also great for those who will never sacrifice wearing heels.


    Promising review: "Very comfortable and stylish. Can wear with pants or dresses. Easy slide on/off with elastic side inserts. I have received several compliments on these. They look great paired with Hilary Radley's black Ponte pants, which tuck neatly inside the booties." —Amazon Customer

    Check out our review of the water-resistant rubber chukka boots.

    Promising review: "These men's boots look rugged in a grungy street-style way — which is a way I like very much! I've even worn them with my Morticia-ish midi black dress with a lace-up V-neck (it's only medium scandalous) and they worked in a surprising way. The rubber tongue and waterproof sole make stomping through all kinds of murky puddles almost fun. Even the puddles that *look* like they're a few inches deep but then you step into them and they reach up past the sole of your boot. Sigh. I'm sure these are also excellent for things like actual hiking (which I don't do, sorry every dude on Bumble who read Into the Wild in middle school) or muddy music festivals (which I've avoided for the past few years in my old age). For now, these look pretty great and keep my feet dry and safe from putrid city puddles, which, tbh, are more terrifying than the huge rats." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get them from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in men's sizes 3.5–12).

    4. Men's Addidas All-Terrain running shoes with sleek comfort and a breathable grip that'll make running in all weather conditions a breeze.


    Promising review: "The upper is plush and warm! The added grip of the outsole is noticeable for slippery weather. The sock liner around the ankle locks in warmth and makes the shoe feel like the most flexible, comfortable boot you've ever worn. These are definitely still a runner's shoe and they'd be perfect for cold-water training." —BoostJustin

    Get them from Nordstrom for $200 (available in sizes 7–13).

    5. Sam Edelman Chelsea rain booties that'll be lightweight enough to wear walking around all day in the city.

    Check out our review of the Sam Edelman rain booties.

    Promising review: "These are my favorite rain boots! I've gotten many compliments on them and can wear them with business casual outfits, which is a first for rain boots (which are usually so large and clunky). I would not recommend buying these if you plan to walk through marshes or go fishing, but for rainy city trekking-yes!" —big mac

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes 4–13 and nine colors).

    6. Over-the-knee waterproof boots with a stretchy ruffle and memory foam footbed for a comfortable fit with every step — and also hold up in any weather situation.


    Promising review: "I bought these for our trip to London and they did not disappoint! We walked all over that city and these boots did not hurt my feet. My legs/feet were kept warm and dry. They are super chic and a great buy!" —JessSeff

    Get them from Nordstrom for $264.95 (available in sizes 5.5–12).

    7. Fur-lined winter booties with an anti-slip rubber sole to conquer those winter streets with style.


    Promising review: "These boots are very well made! My granddaughter loves them!! They keep her feet warm and dry!! When you live in New England these boots are a must!! I am going to order myself a pair!! Very stylish too!"maria p.

    Get them from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and five colors).

    8. Leather heeled boots that'll pair comfortably with your work clothes so you won't have to take them off when you get into the office.


    Promising review: "I needed boots for work that I could wear with a suit, that wouldn’t make me want to cut off my feet at the end of a 12 hour day, and that could handle the dangers of stepping off a NYC curb in the rain. These boots are perfect, comfortable, waterproof, and stylish. I’ve blazed through a million other ankle boots and wanted to set them on fire because they sucked so bad. These boots are awesome." —very veronica

    Get them from Amazon for $69.71+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and three colors).

    9. Two-toned Eskimo boots with a sherpa lining and a side pocket for storage that'll keep your legs warm and fashionable while trucking through the snow.


    Promising review: "These are great boots and they're pretty darn cute! They're perfect for sloppy, gross Seattle winters. I actually got them because I live in Seattle sometimes and Minnesota other times. They're waterproof for Seattle and SUPER warm for MN. They've got good grips and really great arch supports for stylish boots, as well. I wouldn't wear them for a hike or anything, but they're great for trudging through mud or snow." —Jocelyn Walsh

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99 (available in sizes 5–13 and nine colors).

    10. Sparkling heeled leather booties with traction on the bottom to make brisk walking on wet and icy streets effortless.


    Promising review: "I get a lot of compliments on these boots and snagged them at a fantastic price. They're real leather, with solid tread for traction on the bottom. The leather bands/strips on the back are suede and metallic gold leather, which gives it a little extra interest. The heel is stacked, but not too high and they required no break-in. I put them on right out of the box and did a lot of brisk walking in Chicago in snow and ice. Not only did I not lose traction, but my feet stayed warm and dry and the leather stood up to salted streets and walks. If you're considering these, I'd definitely recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $40+ (available in sizes 6–11).

    11. Men's cap toe boots for versatile and vintage style that'll look good with khakis or your favorite pair of jeans — even in the rain or snow.


    Promising review: "Boots are well built with beautiful leather. Takes a bit to break in but they are comfortable. The soles provide a good grip to prevent slippage from the rain or snow and are good for my walk in the city." —Charlie_Brown

    Get them from Nordstrom for $295 (available in sizes 8–13 and two colors).

    12. Ugg classic short boots with a mini wedge heel that'll become your go-to option.


    Promising review: "These are my first classic Ugg boots and they are perfect! While I liked the style of the popular boot, I didn’t think my low arches would. I was also hesitant about the look of them on my 45-year-old feet! But this boot takes care of both concerns with a wedge heel and slim design. They are the winter boot trifecta — cute, warm, and comfortable. If you can get your hands on them, your feet will be glad you did!" —Hopefullee

    Get them from Nordstrom for $129.90 (originally $174.95, available in sizes 5–12 and three colors).

    13. Insulated waterproof combat boots with a slip-resistant sole for the utility-inspired trendy look you can wear every day.


    Promising review: "Stylish and functional. I needed a waterproof boot that looks stylish. This fits the bill. I’ve worn them on my trip out to the mountains and stomped around town and my toes were warm and dry. I love wearing with skinny jeans and a snuggly sweater in Colorado. Super cute!" —Stellabella1

    Get them from Nordstrom $169.95 (available in sizes 5–11 and two colors).

    14. Men's Columbia waterproof hiking sneakers that'll keep your feet dry even through the wettest trips.
