Winter isn’t everyone’s favourite season, but it can get a whole lot better with a quality pair of winter boots. Winter is considered the harshest of the seasons in most places, it brings in high winds, freezing temperatures, more rain, and, even snow.

When you’re trundling around in a cold environment, it’s more important than ever that you keep your feel well protected from the elements, which is where winter boots come in.

Consider your climate, conditions, and travel plans when picking a winter boot as you wouldn’t want something too cumbersome for a drizzle. It’s a good idea to invest in quality materials and construction techniques like Gore-Tex and Goodyear welts to ensure the boot lasts you for several seasons.

Winter Boot FAQs

Should winter boots be a size bigger?

No. Winter boots are generally made slightly larger than other types of footwear, so you do not need to go up a size when buying.

What is the best material for winter boots?

For winter boots, the upper material needs to be both strong and water-resistant. Look for boots made with nylon or leather with pre-treated waterproofing.

What is the best fastening/closure for winter boots?

It depends on your preference. Lace-ups will adjust to the shape of your legs, while zippers will allow for quick and easy taking on and off.
