After a wildly hot summer, the arrival of a sub-zero winter is not particularly welcome. But the wardrobe shift has, occasionally, managed to keep us warm inside. With the hiking aesthetic taking center stage again this year, from Salomon’s continued dominance to the ubiquity of techwear, there are plenty of options around to get properly suited and booted for cold weather.

We’re starting off on the right foot, with a selection of the season’s best winter boots. You might be thinking that winter boots are a bit extreme if you don’t live in a place expecting abundant snowfall, but a quick scroll through the selection below should have you pining for a pair on looks alone.

From Moon Boot to Timberland, anybody who’s anybody is getting in on the snow-boot action so you should have no trouble finding a pair to suit your wardrobe.
