14 Waterproof winter boots that are as stylish as they are functional

There is nothing like waking up on a winter morning to discover a snow-capped view. But with the pleasant aesthetic of fresh snow comes the need to hike through it (and shovel it for some). Only one genre of shoes is enough: snowshoes. Often times, given that most useful winter shoes are chunky, this isn’t the most stylish option. That was until this winter when the designers decided to upgrade the staples for cold weather. In 2021, snowshoes are still waterproof, warm, and durable, but they’re also chic, with cleat soles, colored stitching, and shearling details that will make you wear them long after you’ve cleared your driveway. Hell, we’d wear them even if it didn’t snow. Responsible for their rise are brands like Ganni, Diemme and Suicoke, who made water-repellent styles the garments you want to flaunt. Even Gucci makes them, and yes, they include the horsebit. So before you reluctantly drag your salt-stained boots out of the back of the closet for another snowy season, click ahead and find a fashionable version that you won’t want to hide.
