Snow season is here (at least in Chicago) so I am rounding up a few snow boots that are functional, affordable, and most importantly stylish. I find that SHOPBOP, Nordstrom, Zappos, and Bloomingdale’s all have the best selection.
Before I share my most favorites, here are some brands that I love:
I love the chunky vibe of this brand. They call their boots “sneakers” and they come in lots of different colors. When it comes to sizing, they are European and I usually go with a size 37 (which is basically a size 6.5/7 in American sizing). I like to usually go up a half size when it comes to winter boots because I like wearing a chunky wool sock for extra warmth. Here are some of my favorite styles below:
This style isn’t for everyone, but they do defiantly make a statement. Moon Boots are super cozy and perfect for that trip to Aspen or Vail you might have coming up. The price point isn’t bad at all and they come in a bunch of different colors as well as more low key styles and shower versions.
As far as sizing, they come in a range. I’m a 6.5 and went with the 35/38. They come in so many different colors and even have metallic ones too!
Ugg is a classic when it comes to winter boots. They are not only super cozy, but also oh so warm. The brand has been around for awhile and I had a minor obsession back in the day. In my personal opinion, they are currently trending again, and warmer than ever.
Sorel is another great brand when it comes to durability. These can really handle the snow well and the perfect pair for Chicago winters. I got my one and only pair a few years ago and they are still going strong.
I like to break these out during those horrible wintry mixes because I know they can handle it and won’t get ruined (unlink my Uggs that I like to really only wear during colder temps once the snow has been shoveled). I would say these run a bit on the smaller size. I would recommend going up a half or whole size depending on the brand.
Last but not least is the brand COUGAR. They are similar in style as Inuikii, but a bit cheaper in price point. They also have the cutest faux fur lined sneakers that work well in the winter months too. They only come in full sizes so I recommend going up if your a half size. For example, I am a size 6.5 so I usually get a size 7 in these.
