New York City may have only had one real snowfall so far, but it’s enough to get me to break out snow boots and dust them off for the freezing winter to come. The problem is though, they’re fugly. Like, Google cute snow boots and you’d think it’s an oxymoron. I legit always wait until they’re my last resort to wear them out in public. Honestly, a majority of snow boots are horrendous and not fashionable by any means. For the ones that are, it seems as though they don’t keep out the snow.
I know I’m not alone in feeling this way, so trust me when I say there’s no better time to start investing in a new pair of snow boots than right now. The holiday season just kicked off and there are still unbelievable extended Black Friday sales, not to mention the fact that it’s literally Cyber Monday today. So, yeah, I’d say now is a good time to spend your paycheck. Here are six pairs of cute snow boots that are actually good for the snow.
1. Tretorn Chelsea Rain Boots
Maybe this is just a New York thing, but I’ve seen pretty much everyone wearing Chelsea boots. Once September came around, they were everywhere. So I guess these are the next best thing to have after Adidas sneakers. These double as both snow and rain boots with a super soft fleece interior that will keep your socks up and toes warm, two v important things, obvi.
2. Acne Studios Telde Snow Boots
Millennial pink snow boots? Count me in twice. These are cuter than Timberlands and since they are head-turners for sure, they’re perfect for all your ~candid~ snow day Instas.
3. The Row Fara Leather Combat Boots
The rule that wearing white after Labor Dale is forbidden, isn’t even real. If anyone told you that, it’s probably because your vest was disgusting or something. White should be your go-to color in the winter because it makes you look bougie, chic, and v stylish. These v cute snow boots also come in black (bless), but the white pair truly is the winner if you ask me. And you did, since you’re reading my article rn.
4. Stuart Weitzman Yukon Fur-Trim Velvet Hiker Boots
If you’re one of those people who values looking good over staying warm, then you’ll def be in love with these heeled snow boots. Although not easy to walk in, they’re super warm, thick, and durable for harsh inclement weather. You’ll be able to stomp through a foot of snow and still strut the streets like they’re your personal runway.
5. Sam Edelman Darrah 2 Faux Fur Trim Boots
We already know that Clueless plaid is making a comeback. With the detailing on these, you know they’re seriously fab. These come with faux plush fur and a comfy stacked heel.
6. See By Chloé Shearling And Leather-Trimmed Suede Ankle Boots
Okay, shearling, a hint of pink, and durable gripped soles? I am psyched. These cute snow boots are like, a serious upgrade from your over-worn Timbs. They also go with just about anything from skinny jeans to dresses.
