Well folks, it’s that time of year again! Now that winter has settled in we have several snow boot options for those of you who still need to gear up before snowfall becomes a regular occurrence.
Delinda Snow Boot
It’s rare to find a solid snow boot under a hundred dollars, which is why we’re such fans of the Delinda Snow Boot! It’s reminiscent of the Bean Boot but is far more affordable for shoppers on a budget. The fleece lining ensures warmth and adds flare when the boot is cuffed (as shown).
Lola Chamber Boot
We love the deceptive look of the Lola Chamber Boot. Upon first glance, you’d never guess this boot is built for snow but it’s waterproof leather and canvas exterior makes it a great choice for any weather.
The Bean Boot is a classic. If you’re looking for good quality this is the way to go. Plus, these treads will make you feel like you’re adventuring through the backwoods of Maine, even if you’re just trekking to Lau.
Earthkeepers® ‘Mosely’ Waterproof Leather Boot
Not only is Timberland’s Mosely boot gorgeous and fully waterproof, but it’s also ecofriendly! The footbed is made from recylcled plastic bottles while the outsole is comprised of recycled rubber.
Shearwater Duck Boot
We love Sperry’s warm-weather boat shoes so we were thrilled to discover they make equally impressive snow boots. The Shearwater Duck Boot is a particular favorite of ours because of its fabulous color options. The red really stands out but if you’re looking for something that is guaranteed to match the rest of your wardrobe the boot also comes in navy, brown, and black.
Jeane Waterproof Boot
Snow boots rarely reach higher than the calf, so it’s refreshing to find a knee-high option. Blondo’s boot is also a bit dressier than most and could be paired with a skirt or dress in the event of a more formal function.
Wolverine’s Axel Boot is solid and durable. It’s waterproof leather and insulation provide full protection against winter weather. And, while the boot doesn’t run cheap, it’s far more affordable than most men’s snow boots.
1964 Premium T Snow Boot
Sorel is serious about their boots and the 1964 Premium T Snow Boot is no exception. It’s built for heavy snow and can withstand just about any weather. It’s safe to say you’d be more than prepared for DC’s mild winter.
As we’ve said, the Bean Boot is a classic. While there are other boots of a similar style out there, few are as well made at the Bean Boot. Just consider it a solid investment!
Snow Breaker Tall
The North Face
North Face’s Snow Breaker might just be the warmest snow boot around. Its top-notch insulation is said to hold up in temperatures as low as -29 degrees, but we’re hoping you never need to test that limit!
Men’s Bugaboot Original Omni-Heat
We must admit the “grizzly bear” brown Bugaboot is one of our overall favorites. Columbia has created a boot that is warm, waterproof, and built for tough terrain. There’s no need to worry about mud or snow in these.
Gärde Stövel Vinter GTX Boot
These Swedish kicks are pricey but well worth it. They have nearly all the perks of a heavy-duty snow boot while appearing more like a day-to-day loafer. Their best feature is the faux-fur lining, which ensures both comfort and warmth.
We hope we’ve given you a few good leads on boots that will help you survive the season! Enjoy the snow and keep holding out for those cherry blossoms!
