Top 3 Women’s Snow Boots

Posted in Footwear, Opinion, Womens Gear by Tiara Wasner - 02.14.2011

Hi Tiara here. As the resident Mountainista, I pride myself in finding comfortable, functional, and most importantly stylish outdoor gear.  When it comes to shoes I’ve found women tend to sacrifice either comfort or fashion. Ladies you know what I’m talking about. Well long gone are the days of sacrificing fashion for function.  Companies such as SorelThe North FaceMerrell, ColumbiaKeen, and Patagonia have started manufacturing  fashionable and functional snow/winter boots for women.  Because your feet will love you, here are my top three:

3. ) The North Face – Women’s Abby Chukka

Face it who doesn’t like a touch of fur? Warm, stylish and functional is the theme, right? The Abby Chukka is here to please your feet and your style.  Available in three color options, these cozy and easy to slip on booties are great for running errands or Après drinks after a day on the mountain.  The North Face added stylish heel straps and a few snowflake details on the side of the boot.  Abby Chukka’s are classic,  fun and here to stay.

MSRP: $135

Abby Chukka Features:

  • 200 g PrimaLoft® Eco insulation
  • Plush faux fur lining
  • Waterproof, pull-on construction for easy on/off
  • Northotic™, compression-molded, dual-density, internal midsole with 3/4 length nylon shank
  • Durable TNF Winter Grip™ rubber outsole with Ice Pick™ temperature-sensitive snowflake lugs

2.) Sorel – Helen of Tundra II

Sorel recently upped the ante with a plethora of new styles, I can now trade in the non-stylish Caribou boot for something  not only functional but stylish.  Although, it was truly hard to narrow down my favorite pair of Sorel boots the Helen of Tundra II is my top pick this winter. Not only does the Helen of Tundra II boot offer warmth and style but a front zip for on and off ease. Available in three colors the Helen of Tundra II looks great over or under jeans. BTW - Sorel’s last forever!

MSRP: $150

Helen of Tundra II Features:

  • Seam-sealed waterproof construction
  • Waterproof full-grain leather upper
  • 100g Thinsulate™ insulation with 3mm felt lining
  • Traction-enhancing multi-directional rubber outsole

1.) Merrell - Tetra Strap Waterproof

The Merrell Tetra Strap Waterproof boot is not only my top pick for your non-traditional snow/winter boot but, my personal go to winter boot when I’m not wearing my Sorel’s (used for deep powder days). The stylish, comfortable and functional equestrian-inspired  Tetra Strap boot should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Wear these boots to the office or out on the town. They will keep your feet cozy, dry, and stylish.
