If insulation is your top priority, The North Face Men’s VECTIV Fastpack Insulated FUTURELIGHT Boots is the best pick. These are durable and massively insulated while remaining breathable — a feature your feet will love.
Specifically designed to take on almost any cold-weather activity, these boots have a rugged heel perfect for trekking through mounds of snow and ice.
They have a leather upper, a breathable, waterproof membrane, a supportive rear heel for strap support and more.

3. Best Faux Fur-Lined Option: Dr. Martens 2976 Faux Fur Lined Platform Chelsea Boots, $210
A Chelsea boot is a must-have in every man’s closet, but your everyday Chelsea boot won’t cut it in those brutally cold winter months. Especially for those days when it snows profusely and the temperature drops to new lows, you’ll need a well-insulated boot with a ridged heel and platform for stability and traction. The Dr. Martens 2976 Faux Fur Lined Platform Chelsea Boot checks all those boxes.
These classic boots are made of milled Nappa leather and have a soft, faux fur lining. Men’s sizing ranges from 6 to 14.
4. Top Premium Leather Winter Boot: Koio Brixen Boot, $425
Few brands make better quality leather shoes than Koio, so when it recently launched its stunning Brizen Boot, it wasn’t surprising that it almost sold out.
This hiking-inspired boot was handcrafted in Italy from vegetable-tanned leather and lined with authentic insulated shearling, making these extremely warm without the bulk. It also has a comfortable padded color and hooked eyelets for easy lacing and that classic look that goes with every outfit.
Also, the durable Koio ArcticLug sole provides traction on the slickest city sidewalks, so you don’t have to worry about slipping.
The chic Koio Brizen Boot comes in two colors and sizes ranging from 7 to 16.
5. Best Waterproof Boot: The North Face Men’s Chilkat V Lace Waterproof Boots, $135
It’s essential that your winter boot also be as waterproof as possible since, once the ice melts, the puddles form — and no one wants cold water seeping through their shoes!
Designed for this very scenario, The North Face Men’s Chilkat V Lace Waterproof Boots are surprisingly lightweight and comfortable. The upper is waterproof suede (a material that’s hard to come by), and the entire boot has a fully waterproof seam-sealed construction that keeps any liquids out.
It also has elevated rustproof metal hardware, internal collar support in the heel, Heatseeker Eco insulated for exceptional warmth and more.
This boot comes in three colors and sizes ranging from 7 to 14.
6. Coziest Casual Weather-Rated Pick: UGG Classic Mini Pull-On Weather Boot, $180

If you’re looking for an extremely insulated boot with a bit of a sense of humor and a casual, fun look, the UGG Classic Mini Pull-On Weather Boot is my top pick.
It’s weather-rated to minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit and has a seam-sealed silhouette that keeps the cold out and the warmth in. This pull-on boot also has a quilted collar with featherless insulation and a removable silicone UGGuard. It’s also extremely lightweight, ultra-durable and just insanely comfortable.
Sizes range from 5 to 13.
7. Most Size-Inclusive: UGG Butte Sheepskin-Lined Boot, $240
