It’s that time of the year again when your summer footwear is officially rendered unnecessary. Woefully, you bring down the box marked ‘Winter Stuff’ from the top shelf in your closet.

As you dig through the box, you realize you haven’t bought a new pair of boots since 2012. Fortunate for you, I have rounded up a list of the best boots for Winter 2019.

1. Cole Haan

Wagner Grand Chelsea Boot

Retail: $210

Available in four different colors, the Wagner Grand Chelsea Boot is perfect for the office. The boot is constructed from polished waterproof leather and finished with grosgrain pull tabs and elasticated side panels. The Wagner Grand is all about comfort, and it does not disappoint.

2. Clarks

Bushacre 2

Retail: $110

A great option for those casual days is the Bushacre 2 Graphite Leather Chukka Boot. A classic boot that can easily transition from day to night. This boot provides lasting comfort with its cushioned footbed and ankle-height topline. Style and comfort? Can’t beat that.  

3. UGG

Morrison Lace-Up Boot

Retail: $200

Your inner rockstar will thank you for this one. The Morrison Lace-Up Boot delivers performance and all-day wearability. It’s pre-treated to repel moisture and stains, and the medial zipper makes it easy to put on and take off. You’ll look effortlessly cool with a pair of these.  

4. Timberland

6-Inch Premium Waterproof Boot

Retail: $198.00

This list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the legendary Timberland Waterproof Boot. The original waterproof boot has been around for 40 years, and it remains as a best-seller today. The rubber lug outsole is made with 10% plant-based materials, along with a direct-attach construction durability. You really can’t go wrong with a pair (or two) of these.
