Winter boots are often aesthetically underwhelming. It seems the warmer they are the less attractive. In an effort to bring you the best of both worlds, we've compiled this list of the warmest and most stylish boots available this season.

Whether you're a Sorel loyalist or ready to try something bold by Gucci or something new by Paris Texas, we've stuck with only the best of the best in terms of materials and brands in order to guarantee the warmth, comfort, and longevity of your new boots. Be sure to pair them with wool socks––not cotton––for optimal warmth and comfort. Once cotton socks get wet, they stay wet, and will not only make you feel the chill but hinder the performance of your boots. Wool socks will also add a layer of cushion to the sides and soles of your feet, making wearing high-heeled boots all day that much more comfortable.
So, without further ado, if you're in the market for a few pairs to carry you through the rest of the season, look no further than these editor-approved picks.
