It only takes a quick scroll on social media to know the super-sized stylish snow boot is having one major moment. Adored by influencers, models and celebs, it’s no surprise we’re seeing this sought-after style not just on the slopes, but in the cities too.

Think of this practical footwear as fashion footwear and you’re winning. Not only will your toes be toasty warm all winter long, but, blizzard or no blizzard, you’ll be sporting the most Insta-worthy, stylish snow boots around. If you’re genuinely heading to powder-topped mountains or booking that budget-friendly wintery trip, then consider the style, practicality and performance, which is why Sorel constantly remains an outdoor favourite.  This year the sports brand sees the launch of the Kinetic Impact NXT waterproof sneaker boot, a snow-ready boot that includes maximum  insulation, waterproof construction and a comfy fleece lining. Simply put, you don’t want wet feet.

For that beautiful blend of luxury and performance, German brand, BOGNER, needs to be on your list. Having recently opened its very first concept store in the UK, BOGNER London is ready to kit you out with all the latest winter gear. Founded by Willy Bogner in 1932, the company has a rich heritage in ski fashion and sportswear, so you know you’re in good hands. Personally, I’m willing it to snow in London so I can try out the label’s new shearling Chamonix boots. They are beautiful. Plus, they come with retractable spikes for a secure foothold in the snow. Not entirely necessary on city streets, but amazing for true ski bunnies. 

However, if you’re more about finessing your après-ski style, at home or abroad, then the finer details are less important. Understandably, we’re obsessing over the latest Chloé Mountain collection, which features beautifully cosy pieces, specifically the iconic winter boots. Then there’s the want-it-all collection from Inuikki. Temptation will undoubtedly be challenged by this luxe brand. With sustainability at its heart, most of their shoes are lined with soft European shearling, a biodegradable, breathable and naturally thermostatic organic material, so basically like walking on clouds. The label has also created a stunning collaboration with IKKS Paris, including unbelievably comfy fur-lined, studded boots, with a rock-inspired aesthetic.

From shearling to padded nylon, lace-up to slip-on, there are many iterations to choose from.  If in doubt, you can’t go wrong with the iconic Moon Boot. A favourite with the Apsen set and A-listers, the brand has collabed with everyone from Gucci to Fendi. But, even the high street is serving up affordable, yet technically brilliant styles (looking at you, Zara), so you’ll be guaranteed to find a pair to complete your ski wardrobe.
