Three Classic Winter Boots for Every Kind of Weather

For rain/snow/sleet:

It doesn’t get more classic than the LL Bean duck boot. And they’re a clear editor favorite. On rainy and snowy days, our office is filled with them. They’re a little more streamlined than other snow boots, and these are ones you can get away with wearing during the day, not just for commuting.

For the cold, gray days of winter:

Maybe the most fashiony of my picks, but still a classic. These are a great warm and waterproof—but still cute—option. Most of the winter, at least here on the east coast, is full of gray and cloudy cold days. Clogs are perfect for that.

For blizzards and other severely inclement weather:

Sorel makes serious winter boots. These are the big guns you’ll want to pull out when it’s properly snowing or blizzarding. They’re incredibly warm and incredibly waterproof.
