Let’s face it: There’s pretty much nothing good about trudging through rain or snow to get to work—except that it gives you the excuse to buy new boots.
Whether your commute involves hopping through puddles and slogging through snow, or you’re just trying to keep your toes warm in sub-zero temps, we’ve got you covered (in style) with these nine picks.
Sometimes, grey, rainy days call for a splash of color—like these Merlot Hunter boots. If you have a long way to walk, try the golden Laguna boots (also available in black and wine), which have much more support and stability than your typical rain boot. And if you’re headed straight to a meeting, pull on these sleek Coach equestrians, which might just be the world’s only professional-looking galoshes.
Snow, Slush, and Sleet
When the weather outside really gets frightful, don’t try to wing it in your Uggs—invest in a pair of boots by Sorel or The North Face, which are designed to brave all of the elements. These three picks will keep your feet warm and dry, without looking making you look like a snow-woman (you know, in case you wind up in the elevator with your boss on the way in).
When it’s not raining and it’s not snowing, it’s just really friggin’ cold, slip your feet into one of these pairs of boots that are lined and designed to keep you warm. A neutral grey color will work with all of your winter outfits and keep your toes toasty all season long.
