We hate to break it to you, but winter is just getting started. And if you learned anything from January's polar vortex it's that you can't let another year go by without investing in cold-weather gear that'll, ya know, actually keep you warm. Luckily, you don't have to splurge too much: has select boots from popular brands like SOREL, Columbia, and UGG on sale for up to 40% off. In other words, if you've been waiting for the perfect moment to buy a new pair, now's the time.
With a perfect five-star rating on Zappos, these wedges seamlessly blend function (waterproof leather) and fashion (3-inch heel).
What reviewers are saying: "If you are on the fence, just go ahead and buy them. You will not regret it. It's comfortable from the start. I can't tell that I am wearing something with a heel."
One of the top sellers on Zappos, this waterproof pair from SOREL has a Sherpa Pile™ snow cuff to keep your ankles nice and toasty while you're outside shoveling.
What reviewers are saying: "The best winter boot I've ever owned! I have long skinny feet and plantar fasciitis so it's extremely hard for me to find shoes that work for me let alone a winter boot but I think this is it!"
When it comes to kids' winter boots, these take the top spot: They're easy to pull on, extremely warm, and have a reflective logo for safety.
What reviewers are saying: "We recently bought these for a longer adventure in the Sierras where it has dumped a ton of snow. Our 8 year old used these several days in a row, in knee deep snow, and stayed dry, warm, and happy every day."
This affordable option from SOREL is insulated with Thinsulate to withstand frigid temperatures down to -25°F.
What reviewers are saying: "No more granny shuffle! These boots are incredible. They feel like ski boots with blown-in insulation and extremely flexible."
For a chic yet casual option, consider these leather ankle boots from UGG, which come in brown, black, and various suede options.
What reviewers are saying: "These are great for casual and for dressy occasions. They are very comfortable. Highly recommend!"
Here's proof that you can keep warm and look cool at the same time.
What reviewers are saying: "These are perfect for living in a place where it snows a lot as the shoe gets a little warm. Very comfortable and very stylish — I get compliments all the time!"
These heavy-duty snow boots are made with Omni-Heat technology and Omni-Tech, which means they reflect body heat and lock out moisture.
What reviewers are saying: "The reviews were right on the money, they're like wearing sneakers instead of clunky boots. I feel like I can run a marathon in them, which is incredible since I would never be able to run a marathon even in actual sneakers."
Although they're not necessarily a solid snow day option, these fur-lined boots from UGG are a classic for a reason: they're seriously cute and comfortable.
What reviewers are saying: "My toddler was warm, waterproof/snow proof and comfortable all winter! Would highly recommend and buy again!"
A cheaper alternative to the popular L.L. Bean Boots, this classic style is perfect year-round, especially in wet, rainy weather.
What reviewers are saying: "High enough to keep your feet protected but not so much that they feel overwhelming or constricting. I've walked all through Central Park in these and might as well have been wearing sneakers. So comfortable!"
Go for a vintage look with these herringbone boots. The best part: They'll keep your feet warm and dry down to -40°F.
What reviewers are saying: "The boots are great. They're warm, comfortable, and have decent arch support. Plus I can trudge in the snow and go to a bar in them without looking like a fool."
Sadly, your tried-and-true UGG boots aren't always work appropriate. This leather and wool pair, though, totally is. One thing: Go up at least half a size because they run small.
What reviewers are saying: "Like everyone said, it takes a little work to get them on, but otherwise I really like them. Same Ugg quality but offers more versatility than the classic boot. "
The name says it all: These herringbone and faux fur boots are made to handle arctic-like temperatures.
What reviewers are saying: "I live in Minnesota, it is snowy and cold here in the winter. I know that Sorel does make other boots with higher ratings for colder temperatures than these, but this style is the perfect compromise of fashion and function."
