I don’t have much need for actual snow boots here in Portland (though the rumor is this year perhaps we will!,) but I have a definite need for good, warm sneaker boots. I love that this has become more of a trend over the last few years.
I had some Kinetic Caribou boots previously (that I discovered in a former search like this) but wound up finding the colorway I chose to be less versatile with my wardrobe. (It was this shoe if you’re interested in Camel Brown.) I’m still not sure what it was about them, I just didn’t wear them a ton. They were super-comfy though!
Comfy. Warm. Cute. A Weather-Resistant Winter Boots Try-On Sesh
Anywho, here I am again hoping to find a cozy, comfy weather-resistant pair of boots to take those neighborhood walks in, as well as run errands in, etc., (A few of these boots may work with our code at Backcountry for 15% off! Use THEMOMEDIT)
This is my current shoe addiction. I just keep trying them all, and spoiler alert, so far the best are Sorel (with a last-minute addition of an awesome Merrell boot!) It’s not really a surprise, but there are some other adorable options, too, so let’s get to it!
These are so so cushiony and warm-with-felt-lining that I die. I wound up keeping this option because they’re just so toasty. I love this color combo best (khaki II,) but these come in a TON of options! True to size here, but perhaps go up by half if you plan to wear thick socks. I won’t need to here, and the felt lining keeps them warmer than most, but if you’re somewhere really cold, probably size up.
These are a new favorite of mine that arrived after the rest. SO comfy, warm and awesome. They work great with my favorite black jeans here, as well as leggings. LOVE! True to size. I have an outfit post coming soon, but here’s a little preview!
Allbirds lovers, I think you’ll adore these! They’re like Allbirds but with a wedge! These are super-comfy and as a longtime Chaco sandal fan, I’m excited that they’re delving into the world of sneakers and boots. Wool and suede upper with more of a wedge than the Sorel Explorer Joan above.
Teva Highside 84 Mid (In 2 Colors!)
I loooooove the retro vibe of these…so much I tried them in two colors. These are so cool. I think I may revisit in the late winter/early spring as they seem better suited for spring and fall, but gosh, so good. They run true to size and have a nice wide toe box area, but they are less cushiony than all the other boots I tried.
Ok, if I didn’t already have some Danner boots, I’d have kept these. So good. Less hiking boot than the Danner though, and definitely a comfy sneaker boot. I am actually trying out the black version because they’re so good. Super-cushiony and the quality you’d expect from Sorel. True to size, and somehow the laces are amazing. They are cute and kinda grippy. Rad. Sold out alllmost everywhere, but I’ve linked to two places that have them in stock below!
I truly wanted to keep so many of these. I adore these, but thought they might not be quite as versatile. They are so rad though, aren’t they? They’re like a hybrid between UGG slippers and high tops.
At first, I thought I’d keep these. The deep green color that reads almost black with the pale peach laces is just a gorgeous combo. I’ve just realized I’m kinda over the wedge boot though…just for myself. But as far as flattering and well-made and seriously comfortable especially for the height, you can’t go wrong with these or any Sorel wedge.
