Conquer the slushy streets in style-meets-function footwear.

Winter boots have come a long way from their strictly utilitarian builds. Realizing that some of us (ahem, Canadians) deal with the cold season for nearly half the year, designers have stepped it up on the style front, marrying form and function in brilliant ways. With the frosty weather upon us, here we found the best winter boots to sport.

Maguire Estrella Green Combo Boot

We’re inclined to say that Maguire’s space age-y silhouette is the perfect city boot. The warm, sheepskin-lining inside keeps your feet toasty while the streamlined silhouette, punctuated by a pretty pop of sage green, lends a style-forward feel with every step.

Ugg Women’s Brisbane Mid


We’ll admit it: this one — with its bright pink neoprene upper — might not be suited for those 20 cm snow days. But will we wear this day-brightening pair when the sun clears away a mere dusting? You betcha.
