Much like "stylish puffers" or "dressy sweatpants," the phrase "chic snow boots" sounds more like an oxymoron than anything else, because let's face it: Winterwear is not sexy. But with Nor'easters and blizzards (ahem, like the one we're in now) barreling toward us every which way, we made it our mission to winter-proof our every stride in style.
We curated a sleek roundup of heavy-duty boots that are high in both performance and aesthetic. For every terrifically tough treaded sole (with sealed waterproof construction), there's a cool-girl finish, from multi-strap laces to super luxe fabrics. Mother Nature, game on.
