TBH I’m not really a snow boot kind of girl BUT I do recognize that there are times when an actual snow boot is necessary (I’m sorry but UGGS are NOT snow boots – did you know that they originated in Australia and were meant to be worn as slippers or by surfers?). When wearing snow boots, style them like you would any other type of chunky boot – over skinny denim or tight fitting leggings. Please, do not tuck your wide-legged pants into them!
Here are my Top 5 snow boot picks, all available at Coquitlam Centre.
SOREL Winter Carnival Winter Boot
If you're in a cold weather climate, then these are THE boots to have. Waterproof, seam-sealed nylon upper. Removable 6mm ThermoPlus washable felt inner boot. 2.5mm bonded felt frost shell that provides an extra layer of insulation and warmth and a sherpa pile snow cuff. Rated -25°F/-32°C.
Available at Soft Moc $134.99*
ROYAL CANADIAN Lethbridge Boots
All leather with shearling trim, memory foam insole and traction sole with a slight wedge heel for extra comfort. Rated -30°C

SOREL 1964 Pac 2 Waterproof Boots
100% Waterproof leather nubuck. Removable 6mm washable, felt inner boot with Sherpa pile snow cuff and a rubber sole. Rated -25°F/-32°C. These ones are also Jillian Harris approved!

KEEN Elsa Waterproof Winter Boot
Waterproof PU leather and textile upper. Seam-sealed waterproof protection. Filled with 100g of KEEN warm insulation. Sherpa collar and mesh lining with heat reflecting strobel thermal barrier.

Dr. Martens 1460 8-Eye Smooth Leather
Ok so I know that these aren't technically snow boots BUT with their leather exterior, treated seams and iconic welted non-slip soles Dr. Martens are a good option for those of you that are looking for something a little bit more versatile. Add a pair of thick thermal socks for extra warmth and you're all set (or if you're really lucky, you'll find a pair of faux-fur lined ones online).
