Where most people see the ethereal beauty of falling snowflakes and frosty ground during winter, a shoe lover sees wet, stained uppers and slippy soles. That’s why we think that the right pair of boots can really change your whole outlook on winter. Not having to worry about the potential challenges that winter terrains might pose allows you to take in the good stuff: fresh winter air and blue skies. Sounds good, right? The problem is that the perfect pair of boots isn’t so easy to come by.

Of course, you want a pair of chunky shoes or winter boots that stands up to winter conditions, but if you’ve got an eye on the world of style, and we assume that you do, then function alone is not enough. We’ve enlisted the help of luxury specialist Browns to round up some of the best winter boots on the market this season.
