When you’re purchasing a pair of snow boots, it’s important to look for a few key details. First, a sole with a grippy material (no one wants to slip and slide on a fresh pile of powdery snow). Sorel seals nearly all of its boots with a seam-sealed waterproof construction feature. Second, a cozy lining (to keep your toes warm, obviously). And third, quality material (a good pair of snow boots should last you season after season).
To ease your winter-weather footwear hunt, we’re sharing the top picks to stock up on before the next snowstorm hits. The last (and our favorite) detail to keep in mind when searching for shoes for the snow finding a pair that includes all three of the above features but also a bit of style.
