COLUMBIA Women’s Heavenly Omni-Heat Organza | $140
Ladies with chronically cold feet will love the Heavenly. It’s lined with Columbia’s patented Omni-Heat fabric, which traps body heat. The cute factor is high too, with a waterproof woven textile upper, faux-fur trim, metal rivets, and bright-red laces, which offer a pop of color. And our toes love the 200-gram insulation throughout.
HELLY HANSEN Women’s Hedda Boot | $180
The sophisticated Hedda rocks clean lines and a spare design that jibes with Helly’s Scandinavian roots. Constructed from water-resistant nubuck leather and premium suede, the faux-fur-lined boot promises to keep you upright thanks to HellyGrip and HellyWear rubber in the outsoles. It doesn’t hurt that they look great swinging off a tailgate at the beach.
MERRELL Women’s Sylva Tall Waterproof | $200
When you don’t want the bulk of a heavy-weight lace-up boot, this sassy side-zip number fits the bill. Equally at home slogging through the resort parking lot and parked on a barstool at après, the Sylva boasts Merrell’s M Select Dry to wick moisture as well as M Select Warm’s 200-gram insulation to warm frosty feet. And the faux-fur trim and front tie are simply adorable.
SPERRY Men’s Cold Bay Vibram Arctic Grip | $180
A sleeker, less clunky take on the classic duck boot, Sperry’s version combines Vibram’s Arctic Grip rubber sole—its stickiest—with insulation and a waterproof leather upper for a men’s boot that is practical in Mother Nature’s worst while also pairing handsomely with jeans and a flannel.
SOREL Tivoli II Pull On Women’s Boot | $130
A different look from Sorel, these stylish slip-on boots don’t slack when it comes to cold-weather engineering. They’re fleece lined, with a waterproof suede upper and a molded rubber outsole for traction. The Tivoli II will keep your feet toasty as well as dry and stable, thanks to 100-gram insulation in the liner.
TIMBERLAND Schazzberg Men’s High Waterproof Boot | $200
The Schazzberg owns a snazzy name and a snazzy look to match. Sophisticated, practical, and hardy, this boot is insulated with 400-gram PrimaLoft, built with full-grain waterproof leather, and equipped with Timberland’s Climapath technology to wick moisture. The vintage 1973 Pendleton flannel at the cuff is a salute to the year Timberland was established.
UGG Men’s Hendren TL Boot | $200
With street styling that belies its versatility, the Hendren makes itself comfortable at the lodge and the office—fairly unusual for snow boots. Lined with wool and constructed with waterproof leather and suede, the Hendren can plod through slush and your feet won’t feel a thing. And slick surfaces have nothing on its Treadlite outsole.
