Best Winter Boots: The List

It is, as another song says, the most wonderful time of the year. And there’s nothing quite like a wintry walk; whether a post lunch stroll through the woods or an early morning amble through snow-kissed streets.

But even after the snow melts, our winter boots guide is filled with recommendations that will see whomever you’re buying for through the winter months and beyond.


Elegant, practical and robust, Joseph Seibel’s Sandra91 are waterproof hiking boots that don’t skimp on style. Whether worn as part of a winter ensemble for a day spent visiting loved ones, or put through their paces on a seasonal adventure, they’re an evergreen pick in the best women’s boots category.

And so our winter boots guide turns its attention to men’s winter boots now, with Cirencester by Cotswold. Honestly, written descriptions of these supportive, comfortable boots struggle to do them justice. A lightweight, stylish and supportive Chelsea brogue ankle-boot featuring a padded leather-lined footbed cushion for maximum comfort? No wonder they made our best winter boots list.

Altai STX

Men’s winter boots are like… old friends. Supportive throughout the years, no matter how much is thrown at them. And Altai STX by Joya are no exception. A rugged, all-terrain boot benefiting from innovative comfort technology and a breathable upper mesh, these robust men’s winter boots are an ideal gift.

And we round out our winter boot guide in style. And comfort. And support. And warmth. Designed by Shuropody, Skylar are water-resistant and ultra-cosy, with a faux-fur trim adding seasonal flair to innovative support. (Because, as we know, the best women’s boots are multi-taskers.)

Perfect for seasonal strolls or wintry city afternoons, they’re comfortable boots with effortless style. I.e. the quintessential winter boot.
