First thing's first — snow boots should be practical. But practicality doesn't have to mean unfashionable, and this round-up of cute snow boots is bound to make you feel better about the impending chilly doom that is winter. Whether you're a die-hard UGG fan or open to cutting edge looks, there's a cute pair of snow boots for you.
If you're still wrapped up preparing for winter and snow boots aren't even on your radar yet, don't worry! Bustle has you totally covered on everything from winter dresses to defy your seasonal dress prejudices to super cute and warm workout clothes for winter, so you don't freeze your booty off during a run.
If don't live wear it snows during the winter, I totally won't judge you for purchasing a pair of the cute snow boots below anyway. Who says you have to have snow to be a snow bunny? Perhaps it's also a good incentive to plan a snowboarding or skiing trip this winter.
If you needed even more reason to invest in a cute pair of snow boots, rest assured the god of shoes, Manolo Blahnik, approves. In an interview with Fashionista, Blahnik even went so far as to call snow boots "chic." What more encouragement do you need people?!
