2. Sperry winter boots that are (*gasp*) even better than L.L. Bean Boots.
Promising review: "I ordered these when the similar L.L. Bean boots were backordered for months. The cute, hot pink color of these are more my style anyway. They provide great protection from the weather and are very comfortable. The side zipper helps to get them on quickly and easily, even with thick socks." —K. M. Creyn

11. Fleece-lined Timberlands that'll keep your toes warm all winter.
Promising review: "I live in Buffalo, it is a super cold city. These are awesome! I can easily walk in the snow and slush now, regardless the weather conditions. Love them very much! Everyone who lives in a snowing city should buy a pair. The waterproof function works perfectly and keep my feet warm and dry. I was hesitant when I saw them first, but now I am pretty satisfied with the style and color. Love them very much!!" —Jiaxin

19. Elegant riding boots that are secretly made by Aerosole.
Promising review: "I wanted some boots that would be sleek enough to work with a skirt or with skinny jeans tucked inside, but with room for some thick wool socks inside. I am between a B and a C width, but tend to by B width because there aren't many offerings in a C. This was about the only C boot that I liked the look of. It has a pretty quilted pattern that looks a little 'Dior' dressy, but also could work with very casual clothes. The shaft is very soft and flexible without being slouchy or sloppy. There are two zippers, so easy to put on for gals with wide calves or for tucking in a pant leg." —Graphic artist

20. Sherpa-lined snow boots that get the job done even in a blizzard.
Promising review: "I am a girl from Utah and we get heavy snowfall, so I needed good, warm, water proof snow boots that I could wear to and from work along with weekend treks out and about, and of course for the occasional shoveling session. I am 100% happy with my purchase. They come up to mid-calf, are well lined and cushioned inside. The canvas sides are not stiff (which I find wonderful because I am prone to having shoes and boots rub sores into me) and the boots pull on easily. I am very excited to wear them out tomorrow and on New Year's Eve with my husband on our date into snowy downtown Salt Lake City!" —Zbob

21. Faux suede booties you can walk all day in.
Promising review: "When I first got these boots, I thought maybe they'd be cheap or something, but honestly, these are now my favorite boots and I wear them nearly every day. They are comfortable and stylish and they were exactly what I wanted." —Ariana
Rating: 4.5/5 / Price: $38.99+ / Sizes: 5-12 / Available in five colors.
