Winter is just around the corner, and your old boots are worn out to the point of disrepair. You want new boots, but the slew of high priced boots you’ve seen are dissuading you from further browsing. You can opt for exceptionally cheap boots at Walmart, but their durability may conduce to a poor investment. Don’t waste your time buying boots that are dirt cheap but of poor quality. Find the perfect balance between durability, style, and price. Here are the ten best men’s winter boots we love right now.
1. WHITIN Men’s Insulated All-Weather Boots
These stunning men’s winter boots are great for casual wear and have a fur lining for maximum comfort. Personally, my favorite color combination is the brown and the cream, but there are more than enough to choose from, with fifteen more color combinations. The durable outer sole will endure many winters, and the inner sole is machine washable. At a price to die for, this boot is a must.
2. Merrell Men’s Moab Polar Waterproof Winter Boot
As the name suggest, these men’s winter boots have the added feature of being waterproof. The combination of leather and fabric is striking, and the “espresso” color highlights the sharp distinction. However, the cage overlays are probably the most interesting and salient quality. The price is more than fair for these gorgeous boots.
3. Columbia Men’s Fairbanks Omni-Heat Hiking Shoe
If you’re wanting a versatile shoe, these boots are the perfect fit. They’re actually advertised as omni-heat hiking shoes, but they’re also great winter shoes for milder conditions. I love the “elk, deep rust” color combo, but there are many others to choose from. The waterproof, breathable texture still retains a much needed durability for the winter months. The peak price of these is in the mid two hundreds, but you can buy them on amazon for as cheap as seventy five dollars.
4. Kamik Men’s Greenbay 4 Cold-Weather Boot
Although this boot isn’t particularly focused on style, it is incredibly durable, and the upper part of the boot provides a waterproof feature. This boot is designed for intense weather; it is not suitable for casual wear. Instead of laces, a strap hooks and loops for a more secure fit. Wear these boots in knee deep slush or during a hale storm. They are impervious to all sorts of harsh conditions. While these boots are priced as high as $125, you can purchase them for the reasonable price of sixty dollars, a great deal for such a durable, long lasting shoe.
5. SOREL Men’s Caribou Winter Snow Boot
The faux-fur adds a great boost to an already stylish men’s winter boot. These shoes will supply you with great traction and extra warmth. In addition, there are twelve color combinations to choose from. The laces may be a bit toilsome, but they’re such a minor complaint considering all this boot has to offer. The price is as high as $305, but you can purchase these exceptional boots for around ninety on amazon.
6. Northside Men’s Back Country Waterproof Pack Boot
Unlike most of the previously listed men’s winter boots, this boot has three different colors in each pair. I personally think that three is a bit excessive, but these shoes have more to offer than aesthetic appeal. Some of the best features are the thermolite insulation, the fur collar, and the “triple stiched” bottom. The Back Country Waterproof boot can be purchased for as low as thirty six dollars.
7. SITAILE Snow Boots, Women Men Fur Lined Waterproof Winter Outdoor Slippers Slip On Ankle Snow Booties Sneakers
For the sake of variety on this list, I decided to add another shoe that can function as both men’s winter boots and a casual shoe. These shoes are advertised as winter slippers and contain a fur collar, a fur lining, and a removable insole. They’re also one hundred percent waterproof, which is a must for the winter months. The simple but aesthetically pleasing look of this shoe is rendered through stripes and a beautiful faux fur collar. The outer sole is durable and perfect for those mild winter days. Wear these slippers outside or during comfortable snow days in the house. At a price that’s dirt cheap, these shoes are perfect for almost any setting.
8. Timberland Men’s 6” Premium 400g Waterproof Boots
Next on the list is one of the many products that has come to epitomize the Timberland brand. This timeless classic will always be relevant. With its signature style and durability, the Premium 400g is sleak, stylish, and can be worn throughout the entire year. The 400g insulation is just an added bonus. These shoes are priced at nearly $200 at Dicks, but for such an iconic, timeless product, it’s worth it.
9. Kamik Men’s Alborg Cold Weather Boot
The penultimate boot is yet another belonging to Kamik. Like many of the other men’s winter boots on this list, this shoe has a D-ring lacing system for a secure fit. The Zylextra lining is removable, and the inner and outer soles are made of black, waterproof rubber. The dark “gaucho” color fades nicely toward the outer sole, giving a cool, rustic look. This shoe is reasonably priced for as low as sixty dollars, a steal for such an exceptional men’s winter boot.
10. Muck Boot Arctic Sport Rubber High Performance Men’s Winter Boot
This next men’s winter boot is another that is mainly utilitarian, but they’re certainly not hideous. Wear these boots during work and play. They’re flexible and extremely comfortable. More importantly though, they can stand up against any foe–rain, sleet, snow. You name it. In addition, this shoe can absorb shock, adjust to the shape of your foot, and insulate better than any other men’s winter boot out there. These boots can be found on amazon for the lowest price of $103, but they’re truly superlative. No other shoe out there is even comparable. I actually own a pair of my own.
