Neoprene Insert Boots

Barneys, $195

These snow boots, exclusive to Barneys, are currently en route to my apartment. In a practical sense, you won't have to worry about any accidental slips or falls, thanks to the rubber soles. Meanwhile, the rib-knit collar and neoprene sock insert make this traditional hiking boot style that much chicer.

Waterproof Hiker Boot

Cole Haan, $280

The kind of shoes you won't be able to stop touching because they're so damn soft. The pumice stone is a refreshing color choice from the black and brown boots we're typically used to, but if you're a creature of habit they're also available in those shades.
