New York City’s first real snowfall of the season is stirring some sartorial drama at R29 HQ today. Snow boots are a — surprisingly — contentious topic among our staff. There’s the fashion-versus-function debate, for starters. Then, there are the brands we actually wear. (Spoiler: There is no clear winner.)
While some editors are heritage-brand devotees (Bean boots, anyone?), others favor popular winter labels, like Sorel, UGG, and Hunter, to get their weather-resistant fix. Still others swear by indie designers and lesser-known e-comms for a safe and smooth trek in the snow.
So, readers, tell us: What is your favorite snow boot? And, more importantly, why? Fire away with your picks in the comments. We're awarding metaphorical bonus points for those who include links to shop 'em. Ready, set, review!
