There's one undeniable fact: winter is coming and with it, the season brings rain, ice, slush, and snowy city streets – maybe even a blizzard or two. In the Nordics we know the value of a good sturdy boots with a slip-proof sole. Retiring our boots and white leather sneakers (to save them from those ghastly annoying salt-stains), we look to replace our current shoe-drobe with more sleet friendly styles – a task that in the past could only have been describes as lacklustre with the limited selection of sartorially satisfying shoes on the market.
However, now more than ever, we're thankful for the turn towards function in fashion. After all, we're in luck that today's stylish snow boots are equally weatherproof as they are enviable, making sure we make it from point A to point B without slipping on the ice.
To avoid the usual slip and slide, below are the best winter boots to invest in now:
