Finding the right footwear can be a challenge, especially during the winter months. Winter weather is often unpredictable, which makes picking out shoes that are warm enough and stylish is a must. Whether you’re looking for the perfect winter shoe to wear to the office or the must-have waterproof snow boots, Woman’s World has you covered. Discover 14 of our favorite women’s winter shoes.
But first, how do you choose the right winter shoe? According to Columbia, a winter boot is supposed to keep you warm, so whatever option you buy should be able to do that at the very least. There are three factors to consider when it comes to shopping for warm winter shoes:
- Insulation: The inner part of the shoe or boot that will trap warmth and keeps your feet feeling comfortable. It’s usually fleece, wool, or synthetic down, but many newer boot options feature reflective liners that achieve the same thing.
- Waterproofing: Your feet can’t be warm if they’re wet, which means winter shoes should always be water-resistant, if not fully waterproof.
- Material: Winter footwear should be made of durable materials like leather, which adds a second layer of protection from the cold and makes the shoe more durable.
