A pair of fluffy, cozy, insulated boots to wear off the mountain is a must for a ski (or snowboard) trip. But the look of après-ski footwear can translate to any locale, especially when temps drop and warmth is key.
The three tenets of a good après-ski boot are warmth (ideally in added insulation), comfort (footbeds should be molded and heels should be minimal) and a little bit of comfy fluff, which is usually expressed in fur (faux or real) or shearling, to add both luxury and practicality to the boot.
Herewith, six of this season’s best après-ski boot options for the slopes and beyond.
Y/Project x Ugg Layered Boot
French brand Y/Project has partnered with Ugg for two seasons now, and creative director Glenn Martens has proven that you really can do just about anything with the footwear brand’s iconic shearling (including some insane thigh-highs). These triple-layered boots are a bit more palatable for, well, anywhere.
Marc Fisher Ltd Izzie Shearling Lace-Up Boot
With a sturdy lug sole, contrast welting, rustic laces and a pillow of shearling on the tongue, Marc Fisher’s Izzie boot is, hands down, one of the most stylish of the season.
See by Chloé Shearling-Trimmed Boot
Furry tongues are a thing this winter, as See by Chloé proves — with a foldover ankle to boot.
Saint Laurent Ankle Boot
For anyone requiring maximal fuzziness, look no further than Saint Laurent’s shearling hooves.
Stuart Weitzman Blizzard Suede and Mink Calf Boot
With a stacked heel and a luxe mink calf, Stuart Weitzman’s Blizzard boot screams Aspen.
Jeremy Scott x Moon Boot
Visions of vintage après-ski scenes often include Moon Boots, which first showed up on European slopes in the ’70s. Earlier this year, Jeremy Scott teamed up with the Italian brand to create his own vision of the boot, which includes dramatic neon styles and thigh-highs, along with this more subdued version in shiny black.
