8 Snow Boots That Are Warm, Weatherproof – and Actually Stylish

What to wear if we actually get 17 inches of snow this weekend.


Boots that make a predicted 17-inch snowfall seem … not that horrible?

So, you thought we’d escaped another Philly winter? Think again. Snow (and a lot of it) is possibly on its way. If weather predictions are correct, you have about four days to stock up on cold-weather gear. And if you’re planning on just battling the snow banks with your rubber rain boots, you should probably reconsider. I get it: Snow boots aren’t exactly fun to buy. They’re clunky, chunky and, on the whole, pretty darn uninspiring.

Or so we thought. We did some digging and rounded up eight pairs of snow boots that are warm, functional and surprisingly stylish, so you can save your rain boots for a rainy day, and not a blizzard.

Let it snow? If it must. At least now you’ll be prepared.
