Beloved by mountaineers and Kendall Jenner alike, quilted puffer boots (and slippers!) are having quite the fashion moment as of late. The latter has been spotted in her insulated mules from The North Face on several occasions recently, a pair that’s crafted with fleece lining, a cloud like upper, and rubber soles—the crème de la crème of comfort, you might say. Unsurprisingly, the puffer footwear trend is ideal for this time of year when temperatures are low and the need for cozy wardrobe staples is high, high, high.
When looking for your pair, there are a few things to consider. First, you can go with the classic boot silhouette or you can follow Jenner's lead and opt for a mule slipper shape. Next, while many of the fabrics are a similar nylon texture, some designers are doing options in other textiles as well, such as corduroy. Lastly, color—so many color options. A black or white will always be a safe bet, but if you’re into taking risks and prefer something splashier, rest assured there’s something to brighten up your lower half. Ahead, 16 puffer boots to get through winter while staying stylishly snug.
