The only term more shudder-inducing to fashion lovers than "puffer jacket" is "snow boot," which is why you see so many stylish women battling the snow in unlined rain boots. Great news, though: There are plenty of boots that can withstand the weather that aren't completely ugly. Ahead, we've rounded up several fashionable and weatherproof options to help you survive this winter in style.
Most people buy Timberlands for their classic look, but many forget they're also durable, waterproof, and built to withstand the most extreme weather conditions.
See by Chloé, $450
I'll take these beautiful suede-and-shearling ankle boots in a size 10, thanks for asking.
Marc Fisher, $269
When you don't want to fully commit to the knee-high tall boot, Marc Fisher's round-toe lace up booties go perfectly with a chunky sweater and a pair of skinny jeans.
Sorel x Chloé, $515
Look up "statement boot" in the dictionary, and you'll find these suede-rubber hybrid booties featuring lace and fringe detailing. They're definitely not for shy-types. And yet, super practical.
These chelsea rain boots (that don't actually look like rain boots) are 30-degrees-and-below-approved. They double as snow boots, and I can confirm the incredibly plush liner will make them the warmest shoes you’ll ever own.
North Face, $150
North Face's 17-inch tall winter boots will go with practically any outfit. Yes, they're suede, but the suede is waterproof—which means you and your shoes are protected from any wet conditions you find yourself in this winter.
Finally, a snow boot that has what every other snow boot has been missing all along: style. (C'mon, just look at that fringed tassel.) These color-blocked boots are perfect for the next ski trip you're taking or, you know, a walk around the block.
Found: a duck boot you'll actually want to wear in a refreshingly neutral (but not boring) color scheme.
