Snow boots are not just something worn by the likes of Kate Hudson on her annual ski trip to Aspen. With all the snowfall due this week, these boots are reserved for skiing and are worth considering for cold weather wear as they are built for grip and to keep you warm.
It’s hard to find boots for the snow that are waterproof, warm and stylish and wellingtons will only go so far in meeting one of these criteria, perhaps two if worn with your most wolly of knee socks.
So we’ve done a scout around for you to see of what’s out there and here are some of our recommendations:
A celebrity favourite amongst Elle McPhearson, Kate Hudson and Brad Pitt (Kate Hudson is pictured here wearing Sorels), this label has earned its reputation for warmth, durability and comfort.
The most popular boot for the ladies is the Joan of Arctic (€149.95, pictured) while most men opt for the Caribou style (€149.95). Without shoving chic aside for comfort, this is our top choice for this season’s ski boot
Hunter snow boots
Hunter, who are famous for wellingtons, have a great range of snowboots right now which are a great investment for years to come.
The The Original Tall Snow boot is just like their original welly except that it’s got a 4mm neoprene lining which keeps the feet and legs warm and a snowshoe outsole which gives maximum grip.
The Original Snow Quilt is a “moon boot” style with a a 4mm neoprene lined foot and a snowproof nylon quilted leg.
The Breckenridge is a leather ankle boot for men and women (it looks like a hiking boot) with a tough snowshoe outsole featuring Icetrek™ technology for maximum grip. In fact all three Hunter boots have Icetrek.
Snow grips for your shoes
Penneys have snow grips for your shoes in all mens and womens shoe sizes selling these at €4 each. Just pop them on the soles of your shoes to add some extra, non slip traction! With this option, there is no need to buy snow boots at all!
With all these options to choose from, there are plenty of ways to keep your feet warm during the big freeze.
