There's no getting around Winter for most of us (unless you live in Southern California or Florida, that is), and that means there's really no avoiding the Winter boot conundrum. It sounds a little something like this: how can I make these clunky snow boots look cute? Where can I find a pair of ankle boots that don't also look like mountain-man hiking boots? Trust us; we know it's a hard balance to strike — that fine line between fashionable and functional is too often blurred once the weather is in decline — but we know that this happy (shoe) medium does exist. With attention paid to essential cold-weather elements (namely, tough rubber/lug soles, shearling lining, and a waterproof finish), we scouted 10 pairs that promise to complement the rest of your outfit. Inside, you'll find a luxe rabbit-fur-lined iteration along with a wine-colored heel ready to take on the rainiest climates and a slick leather (yep, waterproof) moto boot.
