To us, it’s pretty simple: Tough winter weather calls for tough winter boots. Not just any old pair will do, though. No, you surely need a pair of the best winter boots. From brands big and small, expected and unexpected, we’ve got you covered.

The right winter boots often blend handsome, classic style with the snow-fighting capabilities that the season calls for. Some even look great with a navy flannel suit (trust us). When it comes to the best winter boots, the right style is out there for you, you’ve just got to seek it out.

The best men’s winter boots often do more than one thing well.

That makes this pair a relatively easy choice for any list of the best winter boots for men.

Featuring Primaloft insulation and Danner Dry waterproof technology, these are adventure-tested, yet they wouldn’t look out of place when worn with navy chinos and a shawl cardigan to your favorite brewery.

Take a page out of the playbooks of our neighbors across the pond with these refined hiking boots. A worthwhile investment at more than $300, the Zolla gets all the details of the classic hiking boot right, with none of the chunky silhouette.
