Six Boots To Break The Banks
Now that the snow’s banked high and winter is officially in full swing, your fall footwear ain’t going to cut it anymore. We combed the market to find six must-see boots that can stand up to the slush.
Clockwise from top left:
In a word: perfection. And I’m not the only one who thinks so—the Gap recently strapped these on the models for their winter campaign, causing widespread confusion when would-be shoppers couldn’t find them at the brand’s stores.

There’s hardly a girl left in town without a pair of wellies, but Consuelo Castiglione’s luxe, leather-wrapped version one-ups the competition.
Marni rubber and leather Wellingtons, $455, www.marni.com for stores
Short, sleek, and sturdy. These pull-on boots are rugged enough to withstand the great outdoors, but chic enough to hold their own on the snowbanks of Soho.
Sorel Sorelli pull-on boot, $99.95, www.endless.com
Hippies farther east than Topanga Canyon will love Mou’s sheepskin ankle booties. They’re just crafty enough, without crossing into Etsy territory.

The classics are classic for a reason. Ralph’s winter boots are mainstays, and these are updated with a nod to lumberjack style.
Ralph Lauren Collection Fargo boot, $295, www.ralphlauren.com for stores
When better to indulge in the over-the-knee trend than in winter, when you’ll be grateful for the coverage? (Good luck bearing leather thigh-highs come summer.) Knocking around town in these shearling-lined boots is like traveling with your own personal space heater.
