    1. Polar mid-calf waterproof boots lined with faux fur and featuring a rugged sole to help you keep your footing on even the slickest sidewalk ice.,

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99 (available in sizes 5–12 and eight colors and styles).

    Promising review: "I have been very happy with these boots so far. I wore them in ankle to calf deep snow for several hours today while hiking around on wooded trails and through some deep wet and muddy spots, and my feet stayed warm and dry. The knit cuff at the top kept the snow from falling down into my boots and the tread on the bottom grips well. There was a fairly strong synthetic odor on them when they first arrived, but now that they have aired out for a few weeks, it's almost gone. The fit is a little snug (common for lined snow boots) but not at all uncomfortable. No problems with pressure points or blisters after wearing them all day. Especially for the price, I am very impressed and I have already recommended them to several friends." —McFos

    2. A pair of heeled Naturalizer lace-up booties for the ~height~ of style, warmth, and comfort.


    With a three-inch chunky heel for teeter-free stability, a cushioned footbed, a waterproof exterior, and a heat-retaining sock liner, you'll stay comfy even after walking all day.

    Get them from Nordstrom for $174.95 (available in sizes 4–12, medium and wide, and in camel).

    Promising review: "These boots are AMAZINGLY comfortable! I couldn’t wait to write a review. The fit is true to size. My foot is medium width. These didn’t need any breaking in. The platform gives some height that balances the heel height. Wore them to work two days in a row after it snowed. Bonus! They’re waterproof! Love, love, love these boots! The zipper on the side is handy. One last thing for any of you ladies with a high arch or higher arch bone...these are soft enough that they didn’t rub anywhere. Don’t miss getting these! Totally worth it!" —Koamuff

    3. Quilted mid-calf duck boots for anyone who wishes their shoes had a bit more sweater in 'em. These are made with 200g Thinsulate lining rated all the way to -25°F too!


    Plush a plush fuzzy lining and cushioned footbed. Hello comfort!

    Get them from Amazon for $43.99+ (available in sizes TK–TK).

    Promising review: "I bought these for my trip to Denver and Vail, Colorado. Since I only had a carry on, these were the only shoes I had for the whole trip and they held up great. They run true to size, and even when I wore them with two pairs of thick socks, they were not too tight, so I would definitely not go up a size. They are super warm and cozy, the zipper on the side is a TSA life saver! You do not need to undo the laces to take them on and off which is super convenient. They look very cute, are tall enough that you don't worry about snow getting into the boot, and were comfortable enough for everything from hiking to walking around downtown. These are so warm that I often didn't need too many layers because my feet were so cozy." —Jessica

    4. Chunky-heel fold-down boots that'll give a stylish twist to your cold-weather outfit.


    Fold 'em back up when you need some added warmth. Plus these have rubberized treads for secure walking on slippery ice.

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and five colors).

    Promising review: "I just needed black shoes for work and style was irrelevant, so I went with these since they appealed to my tastes in the picture. After receiving them in person, I found they look exactly as portrayed and are unexpectedly comfortable. I assumed at this price point, I would experience discomfort quickly but after many hours of wearing them, they still feel resilient. The quality is good as well and the sole seems durable." —Dylan

    5. Waterproof leather and suede Cole Haan Zerøgrand boots for the perfect blend of style and lightweight practicality. How cute is the shearling touch?

    They're waterproof and have that incredible cushioned footbed Cole Haan's Zerøgrand line is known for.

    Get them from Cole Haan for $280 (available in sizes 5–11, medium and wide, and three colors).

    Promising review: "After seven years of living in New York, I finally bought snow boots! I had prolonged the purchase so long because I always equated real winter boots with being ugly and clunky, but I finally found what I was looking for in these! Super lightweight, comfortable, warm AND stylish! As a note though, they do run narrow so I sized up a half size to a 9 to accommodate though the length in the 8.5 was fine." —Annick H.

    6. A pair of slipper-like North Face booties with strong traction so you can wear 'em around the house, and then out to the store or on winter dog walks without taking a spill.


    And hello Pima Loft insulation for warmth!

    Get them from Zappos for $59.95 (available in sizes 5–10).

    Promising review: "I live in Colorado and use these booties as my house slippers. Our wood floors get so cold, and I can run outside in snow to grab the paper and take trash out because the traction is great. I can wash dishes, and my feet do not get wet if water drips. These are very comfortable, after me having mine for a year... my husband bought a pair for himself and he loves them too. I like practical comfortable shoes that are also a bit stylish." —Momfam

    7. Columbia insulated boots that'll keep you surefooted, whether you're embarking on a winter sport or schlepping through a city blizzard, all in style.

    These also have 200g insulation and a lightweight sole so getting through heavy drifts is a little bit easier.

    Get them from Amazon for $69.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and eight colors).

    Promising review: "I rarely voluntarily go back to products and review them — but this is an exception. These boots are fabulous. We have had a very cold and snowy winter, and these suckers have been on my feet most days. They are super warm, super waterproof, super slide resistant and while perhaps not SUPER cute, certainly cute enough. I have incredibly big feet, so finding these in my size was a miracle and I would say I would buy them again — but I am doubtful I will have to because after all this wear — even snowshoeing — they show no marks or tears or anything. GREAT pair of boots!!!" —Kindle Customer

    8. A pair of tall, insulated pull-on boots for the perfect hybrid of rain boot and winter warmth. Just slip these bbs on easily (thanks to the handles you can grab quickly).


    They're rated to stay comfy down to -13°F.

    Get them from Amazon for $97.58 (available in sizes 6–11 and two colors).

    Promising review: "After buying Bogs boots for my kids for two seasons and noticing how well they help up in our NYC winters, I decided to buy myself a pair. These boots are great! They keep my feet completely warm and dry in 10F degree weather and snow. No cold toes with these boots, unlike my old Sorel ones. They look like rain boots but have a thin fuzzy/furry lining that is very warm. They are also really use to pull on and take off. No more hassles with shoe laces! I bought these in size 8 (39) and they are true to size (with room for thick socks). Highly recommend for anyone looking for comfortable, practical, warm snow boots." —Lys

    9. A pair of sleek back Sperry duck boots (they're made ~exclusively~ for J. Crew) that'll make the grossest sleet-filled streets feel like a winter wonderland.

    J. Crew

    These are the boots *I* want this winter. Cozy sherpa lining? Yes please.

    Get them from J. Crew for $180 (available in sizes 6–11).

    Promising review: "I bought these boots a couple of months ago in preparation for the wet/snowy/slushy NYC winters. So glad I did! They're slim and stylish while keeping your feet warm and dry. I have received countless compliments on them and would recommend them to anyone looking for functional and stylish winter boots. A must have!" —AET88

    10. A pair of subtly stylish Clarks so you can stay cozy without shouting "I'M WEARING SNOW BOOTS!"


    You can roll 'em down to show off the faux fur. And since they're Clarks, you know they're comfy.

    Promising review: "I had been looking at other sites and stores for a long time trying to find these boots in my size (8) and even contacted Dr. Martens to see if they would return in stock after seeing them on someone in the city. I instantly fell in love with them and my long search finally led me to these. They came quickly and in perfect condition. The packaging was impeccable and it came with all of the original packing in the Dr. Martens shoe box as well. I am so satisfied, they are the cutest go-to winter boots that everyone needs in their closet. They were true to size and it didn't take much of any work to break them in and I wore them for a full five hours the first day I put them on." —Vanessa Walker

    12. Surprisingly inexpensive lace-up booties with a faux wool lining for warmth and faux fur trim for style.


    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–14 and five colors).

    Promising review: "I love these boots so much! I love that they have a rubber bottom. They're super cozy and they'll definitely keep your feet warm in the cold weather. I do suggest getting a spray to keep them safe from water and snow, but other than that they are perfect!" —Amanda

    Promising review: "I live in Aspen, Colorado. It snows. A lot. These snow boots are amazing! Super comfortable, well made, and really good looking. Makes me want to wear them when it's not snowing. Highly recommended." —Natasha M. Slayton

    Promising review: "I was sick of having cold feet so I bit the bullet and spent the $250. From the first time I put them on I didn't regret it. They are warm, not too heavy and comfortable. They do run small. I am a true 9.5 so I got a 10 and they fit perfectly. I can even wear a thicker sock if I want to. I just so happened to order them right before the Polar Vortex hit the Midwest and they did their job." —KaraSN

    15. A pair of weatherproof Hunter boots with chic suede accents, because you trust this fan-fave brand in the rain, so why not try a pair for the winter months?

    Get them from Hunter for $175 (available in sizes 5–11).

    Promising review: "Very impressed with the comfort of these boots. I struggle finding boots I can walk all over campus in and not get blisters. These are warm enough for snow but not so much my feet get too hot in class. Overall great product." —KKelly

    Promising review: "This year I am taking responsibility for cleaning up the snow in our Michigan winter, predicted to be a snowy one. These LL Bean boots arrived just in time to get started. They are warm and built to beat any kind of weather — cold and/or wet. I am completely sold on these American-made boots and highly recommend them." —MadAboutBiking

    Promising review: "I lived in Buffalo, it is a super cold city. When it begins to snow, all my boots get wet. I used to wear Ugg in the heavy snow day even if I used waterproof spray before, it doesn't work at all. I am tiring of clean my wet shoes and socks. So I am going to buy a pair of Timberland waterproof boots. They are awesome!!! I can EASILY walk in the snow and slush now regardless the weather condition. Love them very much!! Everyone lives in a snowing city should buy one pair. The waterproof function works perfectly and keep my feet warm and dry. I was hesitating when I saw them first, but now I am pretty satisfied with the style and color. I am gonna put a pic here. LOVE IT VERY MUCH!" —Jiaxin

    19. A pair of short Ugg boots, because they're a true classic. Gotta dash off to the store but there's a legit polar vortex going on? These are a great bet.


    And if you love these but are looking for something more apt for a quick snow shovel, Ugg makes a waterproof version!

    Get them from Nordstrom for $159.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and nine colors).

    Promising review: "These classic boots are my favorite go to for cold winter days. My previous pair lasted are still wearable after 10 years but it was time for a fresh pair!" —JenLyn55

    Get them from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in sizes 5–10 and four colors).

    Promising review: "I live in Buffalo NY, and we have very cold and snowy winters. These boots are great for those days. They provide warmth and comfort and they keep my feet dry. They also look great, which is a bonus! I get complements on them all the time. I usually wear and 8 or 8.5. I ordered a size 8 and they are bit roomy as my toes wiggle freely. This is not a problem, however, because I can fit thick socks or even foot warmers into each boot. They are a comfortable fit with or without extra thick socks." —Cathy

    21. Sorel Explorer waterproof leather boots designed to mimic the comfort and fit of a sneaker, but will all the added benefits of a waterproof winter option.


    Get them from Amazon for $98+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 10 colors).

    Promising review: "I wish I could wear these boots everyday! They are a beautiful design and extremely comfortable. As a teacher, I am constantly on my feet (in uncomfortable shoes most of the time!) and getting to wear these boots on the weekends is heavenly for my poor feet! They are durable and waterproof and well worth the money. I’d recommend these to anyone who needs to give their feet a break from their office shoes." —LolaLAC

    22. Super colorful, chunky sole winter boots to add a P O P of color to your all-black-everything cold weather outfits. And if one comes off in the snow, you definitely won't lose it.


    They have a sherpa fleece lining and double velcro straps you can open and close, even with your mittens on.

    Get them from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–11 and eight colors).

    Promising review: "This has been one heck of a winter. We've had more snow and ice than usual. I received these boots and love them. I ordered one size larger than I usually wear because I wanted to just quickly slip in and out of the boots. They are warm, keep my feet dry and very comfortable. The most important part though is that they do not slip on ice. I was wearing cleats on my previous boots but they are not needed at all with these. I was very impressed. I've worn them now for almost two months and they look like brand new. I don't even have to adjust them. I would highly recommend." —Classy Lady

    23. Converse All Star hightops made with waterproof leather, super-rugged soles, and a corduroy lining so you can face the elements without ~losing your cool~.

    Promising review: "These boots are perfect for what I was looking for....long, cold, wet, dog walks in the winter. Quick and easy slide on and off, fur lined and waterproof. So far, so good. Keep my feet warm and sizing is right on. Some reviews said to get a larger size and I tried that at first but had to send them back as they were too big. The size I always wear fit fine with plenty of room for thick socks. If they came in other colors or designs, I'd probably buy another pair.....I still might." —JerseySparkle
