If you were in certain parts of the U.K and the U.S over the past few weeks, chances are you've also encountered quite a bit of snow while out walking on a winter's day. And what a bone-chilling, treacherous walk it can be if your footwear is not designed to withstand these icy weather conditions.
Winter boots may not be the most elegant of footwear but when functionality plays an important role, unfortunately the level of chicness tends to go down. Luckily there are more options than 'total fashion monstrosity' available and the boots I've listed below guarantee you will step out with your style, budget and physical balance intact.
