It’s that time of year again where we put all our regular winter boots and trainers on pause in favour of the best snow boots. We’ve all made the mistake of prioritising fashion over function before, but luckily with the range of snow boots on the market this year we no longer need to. The two can come hand in hand.
Gone are the days of having to put up with cold feet for the sake of a #look. Don’t believe us? Some of the best snow boots women can buy come from our favourite designer labels, just look to the AW22 runways of Munthe, Stand Studio and Soulland.
Their sensible offerings are far from boring according to the swathes of influencers who have been spotted in them, and who are we to argue with that?
What kind of boots should I wear in the snow?
Short answer: Something waterproof and warm. Functional footwear brands Moon Boot and Sorel have been dressing the après-ski crowd for years with shoes ideal for wearing to and from the slopes in temperatures as low as -35°C. No, we’re not joking. That said, you needn’t have all the ski clothes or a ski holiday booked for an excuse to wear them; they’ve been spotted on the city streets and feet of celebrities like Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham.
The high street has followed in their successful footsteps, too, with H&M, & Other Stories and ASOS making it easier to find padded and weather-proof designs that won’t break the bank but will keep your feet dry and warm. Sign us up.
As we continue into the final season of the year, with wintry conditions already taking their toll, it’s time to start dressing appropriately – beginning from the bottom. Leave your chelsea boots, running shoes and wellies at the door and shop our edit of the 15 best snow boots women can wear below.
