After a wildly hot summer, the arrival of a sub-zero winter is not particularly welcome. But thinking of the wardrobe shift makes us warm inside. With the hike aesthetic taking center stage again this year, from Salomon’s continued dominance to the further propagation to almost 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 Moncler to The North Face, 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.
