1. Best Overall: Columbia Women’s Ice Maiden II Snow Boot, $59.99
Why we love it: These winter boots from Columbia top our list of affordable winter boots for a few reasons. Not only do they have a supportive rubber sole, but the waterproof leather and interior insulation will keep your feet dry and warm all winter long.
2. Best Rubber Pair: Sperry Saltwater Duck Boot, $79.99 (Orig. $109.95)
Why we love it: Sperry’s Saltwater Boots are instantly recognizable and extremely popular for good reason. Available in various colors and finishes, these rubber boots feature a Wave-Siping sole for extra traction on wet and dry surfaces.
3. Best Non-Bulky Option: Propét Insley Waterproof Winter Boot, $99.95
Why we love it: While snow boots can be notoriously bulky and not overly attractive, this pair from Propét is pretty minimal. We especially love this pair for its heat-retaining insole system and full traction outsole that will keep you on your feet through rain, slush and snow.
4. Best Faux-Fur-Trim Winter Boots: Flexus by Spring Step Stormy Waterproof Winter Boot, $89.95
Why we love it: If style is one of the main factors when picking out your winter boots, you’ll want to check out this design from Flexus. This waterproof pair (that you can snag in navy, grey or black) hits at the mid-calf with a faux-fur accent that is too cute to pass up.
5. Best Insulated Winter Boots: Lands’ End Squall Lite Insulated Snow Boots, $49.97-$59.97 with code SCARLET (Orig. $99.95)
Why we love it: While these boots feature a water-resistant nylon upper and Lands’ End’s Thermolite insulation, they are surprisingly lightweight. You’ll love the micro-fleece lining and easy pull-tab at the heel that makes these shoes toasty and comfortable.
6. Best Bargain Pair: Rockmark Women’s Waterproof Snow Boots, $59.49-$69.99
Why we love it: These snow boots are a total steal. But a cheap price tag doesn’t mean these boots skimp out on comfort or warmth. Amazon shoppers have called these boots “very cozy, true to the size, warm and comfortable.”
7. Most Versatile Winter Boots: Dream Pairs Women’s Mid-Calf Winter Snow Boots, $50.99-$65.99
Why we love it: These mid-calf snow boots are perfect to wear for any snowy occasion, from inside the ski chalet to making snowmen in your front yard. [Editor’s note: I bought these boots for a ski trip to Utah and can attest to this pair’s durability and warmth.]
8. Best Fashion-Forward Winter Boots: White Mountain Cozy Bootie, $69.99
Why we love it: If you want a fashionable pair of winter boots that can still brave the elements, you’ll love White Mountain’s Cozy Bootie. Also available in six other colors, these hiker-inspired boots have a sherpa upper, lace-up closure and rubber traction sole.
9. Best Short Winter Boots: Bogs Sweetpea Waterproof Winter Bootie, $75
Why we love it: These short booties from Bogs are perfect to wear on winter days when you don’t need to trudge through inches of snow. And with a sweat-wicking footbed, you won’t need to worry about cold toes.
