21 Pairs of Fashion-Person Snow Boots That Are Actually Functional Too

It’s that time of year again: It’s time to bench your thin, flat-soled boots and break out the snow boots. We’ve all made the mistake of prioritizing style over function, wearing our Chelsea boots or our favorite heeled pair, only to find ourselves slipping and sliding all over the icy sidewalks. As a fashion person myself, I totally understand the temptation to choose aesthetics over practicality, but it’s one of those decisions you regret almost immediately after walking out the door when the snow and ice have taken over the ground. Luckily for all of us, there are a surprising number of snow boots that combine function and style. 

Thanks to these chic options, you no longer have to choose between looking polished and being prepared. From shearling-adorned pairs to trendy rubber soles to faux fur, there are tons of snow-boot options that marry style and function. Below, shop the 21 best pairs of snow boots I’ve come across that will complement your outfit and allow you to trek through the snow with ease.
