11 Weatherproof winter boots that don’t sacrifice style

Let’s face it: Too often, we are willing to freeze our tootsies off or risk breaking a bone if we slip and fall on icy sidewalks, all in the name of fashion. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Check out these 11 weatherproof boots that will keep you stylish and warm all winter long.

1. These warm, stylish lace-ups make the most of wintry style and are a natural match for a sweater dress. (Bastien, $104)

2. These chunky black boots have a bit of an edge and would look great with skinny jeans, or even paired with a circle skirt in more casual offices. (Sporto, $70)

3. These suede boots with a warm, comfy fur lining are the best of all worlds — a somewhat Nordic motif without going all Anna and Elsa, a practical heel and surefooted sole, and enough style to wear to the office under a knee-length skirt. (Blondo, $155)

4. Another potentially work-appropriate pick, these slightly outdoorsy boots have a nice grippy sole that will keep you from skidding on slick surfaces. (Keen, $81)

5. Sometimes, you just have to go full North Pole with your look (especially when the Polar Vortex rears its ugly head again). These furry mukluks will add style to leggings and a big slouchy sweater. (The North Face, $140)

6. These rubber Wellington-style boots are not only sleek and snappy with their bright red fleece peeking out, they’re versatile — when the weather warms up, you can pull out the fleece inserts and they will be great for muddy, rainy days. The rubber will rinse clean in a snap. (Sorel, $63)

7. These boots are pricey at well north of $200, but their combination of sleek style and weatherproof, slip-resistant construction is hard to find. They’re perfect for work and would lend a touch of class to more casual wear as well. (Santana Canada, $279)

9. There are lots of basic black and brown styles available in warm winter boots; what’s hard to find is color. The gray and purple combo of these cute quilted boots means you’ll never be searching through the pile by a friend’s door, wondering which ones are yours. And the gray means they’ll go with just about any color coat. (Patagonia, $130)
