When it comes to living in a city where the snow comes down hard in the winter, there's nothing more important than finding the right boots. To make sure your feet stay comfy, dry, and warm this season, I've pulled together the best snow boots to walk in. Whether you're facing a fresh, powdery snow or layers and layers of the stuff, these boots will take care of you.
Amanda Fenn, senior review editor for Outdoor Gear Lab, shared the key things to consider when shopping for snow boots are "fashion versus function, tall versus short boots, and performance and comfort." Obviously, you need to really stop and think about the kind of conditions you expect to face in your boots (i.e., will you be braving a few inches of snow each day or a few feet?), and go from there.
Oh, and a word to the wise, don't put off shopping for snow boots if this is going to be your first real winter. I waited until mid-December to purchase snow boots in Manhattan because I was apparently in denial that it was actually going to get cold. To say the least, this was a bad idea because I had pretty slim pickings. Consider snagging one of the best pairs of snow boots below if you haven't already!
