Winter boots get a bad rap for being clunky and unfashionable. It’s a challenge to find a pair that are, dare we say, actually stylish. Thankfully, however, you don’t have to sacrifice having warm and dry feet to look flawless from head to toe.
Below, we’ve rounded up a range of chic waterproof winter boots that defy the standards, from fan-favorite brands like Sorel and Ugg to lesser-known labels you’ll be eager to add to your shopping cart.

Perfect for those who love Sorel but shy away from its typically heavy-duty styles, the Slimpack offers a sleeker silhouette, shearling collar and elegant heel— while still maintaining the brand’s beloved cold-weather features.
