Why You Need A Good Pair Of Snow Boots In Your Wardrobe

If you live somewhere that gets ice and snow in the wintertime or are planning to travel somewhere that does, you probably already know that finding a good pair of shoes that can handle snow or ice — and whatever else Mother Nature throws at you — is pretty important. Although you might be able to wear heels through the winter, we're here to make the case for a good pair of snow boots. The very same boots that you might be picturing as clunky or downright ugly actually can be very stylish, and you can't go wrong with footwear that's better suited for even the coldest weather conditions.

After all, the right pair of snow boots aren't just fashionable; they can also make it less likely that you'll end up with an injury from slipping and falling, which is pretty important if you ask us. Still don't believe that you're better off? We've rounded up some of our favorite snow boot looks for your perusal, and they're guaranteed to make you a snow boot believer.

Choose tall boots for snowier conditions

A taller snow boot is likely to provide you with better coverage when walking in the snow. Plus, it will provide you with some added warmth. We've chosen this look because it's warm and cozy yet doesn't sacrifice a fashionable approach to this much-needed winter footwear.

Shorter boots may help you walk more easily

While taller boots might be the better choice for trudging through snow, going for a shorter boot might be a better choice if you find it difficult to walk in winter weather conditions. What's more, there are some orthopedic snow boots available for purchase, for example, as well as boots intended to fit orthoses.

Moon Boots are back in fashion

Although you might remember them as the boots from your childhood, Moon Boots are as stylish as ever. The brand has been seen on many different celebrities lately, and it isn't hard to see why. The fun throwback boots come in all different styles and colors, but we're particularly drawn to gold ones.

Go for a designer snow boot

If you're worried that buying a pair of snow boots means having to choose something without a brand name, you'd be very wrong. In fact, your snow boots can be as high-fashion as the rest of your outfit. Don't believe us? Just take a look at these stunning Christian Dior snow boots.

Opt for a well-known boot brand

Of course, shopping for winter boots doesn't have to mean that you have to buy something designer. Some of the boots profiled by outdoor retailer REI include those made by Merrell and Sorel. Though these boots might be more focused on function, they clearly haven't compromised on style, either. The Sorel pair pictured above would go well with any winter outfit.

You don't need to sacrifice color

If you like to make a bold statement with your footwear, your first thought might not be snow boots. Fortunately, there are plenty of colorful choices to be found no matter your age. Here, we're showing off a light pink pair, but we don't think you'll have too much trouble finding a pair of snow boots in your favorite color.

Vegan snow boots are an option

With many boots made out of leather, fur, and other materials derived from animals, it can seem difficult to buy the right pair of vegan snow boots. Fortunately, more and more brands are recognizing a need to create vegan products, and we're obsessed with this pair of vegan snow boots from Bhava.
