Gone are the days when winter boots only came in bulky, unattractive styles. While your winter boots should offer warmth and reliable traction, there’s no reason you can’t wear a heeled style when temperatures drop. You’ll want a waterproof option to keep feet dry in rain or light snow, but if you don’t live in a wet climate, traditional pairs work, too. Keep in mind that heeled boots shouldn’t be worn in a snowstorm; flat boots offer more stability in those conditions.
Below, we rounded up a range of chic and functional heeled boots for winter. We included options with features like cozy shearling linings, high-traction lug sole and insulation to keep toes toasty. And of course, some are weatherproof for ultimate protection, too.
Ugg Indra Waterproof Boot
These Ugg wedge boots are also completely waterproof, insulated, and designed to provide maximum traction when you need it most.
Aldo Yeraveth Waterproof Boot
Another waterproof pair, these leather Aldo boots are lined with faux fur and set on treaded soles for optimal grip on snow-covered streets.
Sole/Society Eavan Hiker Boot
Available in two colors, this chunky lug-sole style features a plush shearling tongue and collar and a convenient medial side zipper for easy on/off.
Tory Burch Miller Lug Sole Shearling Bootie
Tory Burch’s Miller lug sole boots have a glossy leather upper, faux shearling lining and side zip closure.
Dr. Martens Leona Faux Fur Platform Boot
This chunky style boasts a water-resistant finish, a faux fur lining with WarmWair insulation and Airwair air-cushioned soles for enhanced comfort. Commando tread soles should keep you steady on your feet.
