The Puffer Boot is Winter's Comfiest Shoe Trend

Check out 16 pairs we're obsessed with right now.

puffer boots


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 several times in her insulated mules from The North Face—a pair that’s crafted with fleece lining, a cloud like upper, and rubber soles, AKA the crème de la crème of comfort. Unsurprisingly, the puffer footwear trend is ideal for colder months, 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 brands are designing options in other textiles as well, such as corduroy. Lastly, there are so many color options. 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, see 16 puffer boots that will get you through winter in a stylishly snug moment.
