The Warmest Winter Boots You’ll Actually Want to Wear

stay stylish and keep your toes happy

The winter shoe dilemma is something we’ve all experienced before—do we risk freezing our toes off or slipping on ice for the sake of fashion, or do we play it safe and buy boots meant to take on these winter conditions? Unless your morning commute is similar to that of the Iditarod Race, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice style for warmth and practicality (and if it is, there are Jimmy Choo moon boots for that). We may need to retire our favorite Chelsea boots and slip on platform sneakers while we wait for snow to melt, but luckily there are a number of adorable options to help fill the void.

Whether they’re lined with super cozy materials like shearling, wool, or faux fur, or are made of heat-trapping materials with high traction soles (because in addition to being warm, you also don’t want to slip on black ice), we rounded up the warmest, but still cute boots for any winter weather situation.
