When it comes to the winter season, we always seem to reach for our knee-high boots or heeled boots, and, although stylish, they aren’t always practical. Enter: Snow boots. Built for the coldest months of the year, they are the perfect wardrobe staple to conquer the cold temperatures and feet of snow.

Finding a quality snow boot that you actually want to wear can be tricky. You want to look for a rubber or heavy-duty lug sole, water-resistant materials (including the stitching), and perhaps even a shearling or faux fur lining for extra style and warmth. Below, we have rounded up 25 of the best snow boots that will cover you for every occasion.
