As hard as you may work to keep warm during these winter months, it often seems like the weather fights back twice as hard. While there are a variety of different options you can employ to stay warm, many brands have stepped in to give you more of a fighting chance. To wit: boots lined with shearling, fleece and even down will help you beat the chill. Lace up with some of our favorites, listed below.
Aquatalia Christopher Boot
These Aquatalia boots feature a neoprene liner, and considering that it’s been the go-to fabric for surfers aiming to keep warm in the coldest of temperatures, we think it’s a perfect match for a winter boot.
Tod’s Shearling-Lined Suede Chukka Boots
The math here is pretty simple: A traditional suede chukka plus a shearling liner equals a boot that’s warm, but still in the vein of the desert boots you’re already used to wearing.
Brunello Cucinelli Shearling-Lined Leather Boots
Drawing inspiration from retro hiking boots, these Brunello Cucinelli boots have feature a warm shearling lining. The construction of the upper combines of traditional and waxed leathers that give the whole piece an overall vintage feel.
Timberland 6″ Premium Waterproof Insulated Boots
Timberland knows better than to mess with a classic. These boots, one of a small handful of pairs you can truly call iconic, feature a layer of PrimaLoft polyester inside for warmth.
Blackstone Shearling-Lined Gull Boot
What Blackstone’s Gull boot lacks in waterproofing, it makes up for with a sharp, smart traditional looking offering that’s sure to go with everything in your wardrobe.
Merrell Tremblant Boot
Like a Chelsea boot, Merrell’s Tremblant shoe is easy to slip on and off — so it doesn’t require chaining your feet in like Houdini when you need to venture out into the snow.
Santoni Shearling-Lined Oiled-Suede Chelsea Boot
If you like the idea of a winterized Chelsea boot — but don’t need it to do a lot of heavy lifting — this one from Santoni will do the trick.
Ross & Snow Stefano Boot
Ross & Snow’s Stefano boots is a lot like your favorite pop culture tough guy: Rugged on the outside (its suede and leather combination upper has a nice textured look), but with a soft interior (made with shearling).
Ugg Halfstein Boot
Ugg has always made stuff other than the pull-on shearling boots popularized in the late aughts. Case in point: these Halfstein boots use a similar faux-shearling lining that made those other boots so ubiquitous, but nestle it inside a cool contrasting hiker. The blue laces are the cherry on top of this already appealing satrorial sundae.
Want Les Essentiels Stevens Shearling Suede Zip Boot
Just like peanut butter and jelly, Migos and Drake, Rocket and Groot and beer and pizza, shearling and suede are just two great tastes that go really well together — and this zip boot from Want Les is no exception.
Taft Viking Boot
In an absolutely no-brainer move, Taft has taken one of its most popular designs and lined it with a calfskin interior that’s capable of hanging all winter long.
Danner Weatherized Mountain Boots
Lined with Primaloft (read: synthetic down), these Danner Weatherized Mountain boots are easily the warmest boots on this list. Completely waterproof and mounted on rugged Vibram soles, they’ll withstand everything this season throws at them.
