Best Snow Boots: 2022 Edition

Your Guide to Winter Boots for the Whole Family

With 2022 making its snowy start, there's no better time to update your boot options. Here's a refresher on our top three tips for happy winter feet.


Keep ‘em dry. Choose a well-made performance boot — water-resistant or fully waterproofed is the only kind that will do for wet winter conditions. Don’t try to get by on a boot made from basic, all-season materials like unlined suede or leather. 


Keep ‘em warm. From fluffy faux fur to high-performance Thinsulate and wool blends, warm thermal lining is a must when temperatures drop. Bonus points for an extra-plush layer in the footbed! 


Keep ‘em secure. There’s a reason they’re called snow boots. Stay on your feet with high-traction soles made specifically for snow and ice.


Read on for our top picks to keep the whole family dry, warm, and sunny side up this winter.
