Those tennis sneakers you bought aren’t prepared to hold up to the rigors of winter. This time of year, you need a sturdy pair of boots to keep you warm. But dependability doesn’t mean you have to toss style out the window. Here are a few options to consider this year that will keep you looking good as you brave the cold.


Rockstack Mid

The sneaker-boot isn’t all that new, but in the grand scheme of things it’s still young. Get into the game early with this rendition from Adidas. Clearly it’s more casual than not, but with sneaker technology like a Traxion outsole and an Ortholite liner that wicks moisture away from skin, your feet are sure to thank you. $125


Dockyard Sport Chukka Boot

By now boatshoes are a staple to any wardrobe due to their timeless style and ability to adapt to any wardrobe. Think of this as a boatshoe made for winter; it has added warmth and weather protection while managing to keep that famous Sperry outsole. $130


Rubber Lace-Up Boots

I would guess you’ve seen the famous Hunter boots on countless girls walking around town, and you know what? The girls were on to something with those things. Rubber means protection from the elements, and there’s a crazy amount of colors for you to choose from. $165


Britton Hill

This option from Timberland comes from their Earthkeepers collection, which boasts recycled materials and a production that keeps the environment in mind. Not to mention the chunky outsole will give you immediate street cred. $190

L.L. Bean

Waxed Canvas Maine Boot

The classic design from LL Bean has remained largely unchanged since the first version that came out in 1912. While the original style is great, the waxed canvas offers a bit of variation while still being versatile for all winter weather conditions. $139

Red wing

Iron Ranger

Red Wing is another classic company and their Iron Ranger model is tough as nails. I’ve met more than a few construction hands that swear by this boot, so they should provide sufficient enough coverage for your daily commute. $310


Light Sherman

This pair from Danner takes a while to break in, but are all the better for it once they are. With a mix of materials and textures, they offer an interesting look and are sure to be envy-worthy. $360

Johnston and Murphy


The detailing on this boot is sophisticated enough to hold its own in the office, but rugged enough that you won’t fall on your face trying to get there. The charcoal wool collar adds just enough texture to catch your eye. $195
