Ugg Fraser

For those Game of Thrones superfans out there, winter is not coming. It’s already here. With one wintry storm already in the books for our region, while the season may be technically a few weeks away, the weather has arrived just in time for the holiday season.

Winter boots can be tricky to shop for, especially for us gals, as we want a pair that are warm and comfortable, while still being functional — keeping our toes protected from cold, wet and snowy conditions- and also fashionable. We want comfort, but still want the cuteness.

While we all want to be stylish, we also know that many of us have different needs in terms of functionality. Not every girl needs heavy-duty, all-terrain boots, some are fine with simply water-resistant booties on most winter days. We scoped out our options both online and at local stores, and rated our top picks based on what they do best!
