The temps are dropping and that means snow is likely not too far away. Living in CT it gets pretty chilly in the winter and I’m someone whose feet are ALWAYS cold. I usually ask for some fuzzy socks for Christmas because I live in them all winter. I have learned the importance of good boots in the winter, not only to keep your feet warm but also dry. Nothing is worse than walking through melting snow slush and getting your socks all wet. I’ve put together a winter boot guide showcasing all the best kinds of boots to wear this winter and when they come most in handy.

These are what I call the fashionable snow boot. These boots will keep your feet warm, but the ones with heels aren’t the most practical for snow/ice. These are the types of boots you wear when you go out and want to look cute, but also want your feet to stay warm.
You either love or hate Ugg boots, and I happen to love them. I’ve had both of my pairs since I was in high school, we’re talking over 12 years now. I still wear them a ton in the fall and winter. I wear my Ugg boots on dry winter days when it’s real cold out. You can also spray your boots with a suede protector to keep them dry in the snow.
An obvious footwear choice for a New England winter. I used to only wear snow boots when I went out sledding as a kid. I have since started wearing them anytime it snows. Snow boots are best to wear when it snows because they can be bulky otherwise. You can also wear these when it’s super slushy and wet out. I have had this pair of Bean Boots for nearly 4 years and could not recommend them enough. I wore these in Iceland and through rain and snow my feet stayed warm and dry.
Rainy winter days are my least favorite of all. I can deal with the rain, I can deal with the cold, but I don’t want both at the same time! I’ve had a pair of Hunter rain boots for years and wear them daily in the spring and fall. They aren’t technically winter boots but on really rain days I wouldn’t want to wear anything else. I have worn mine in the snow, but I believe on their website this is not suggested.
