Our favorite cold-weather boots for ski and city, from Jimmy Choo, Fendi and Prada’s puffer snow boots to Miu Miu and Chloe hiking boots.
Whether you’re a hard-core adrenaline junky praying for powder, or you’re really just in it for the après-ski, a pair of cosy-chic snow boots is essential for every well-travelled winter wardrobe. This season, Prada and Valentino have put a fashionable spin on functional footwear with oversized padded snow boots, or look to Chanel for an elegant alternative (warning – their quilted knee-highs are not intended for rough terrain!) Feel like going off-piste? Channel your inner Yeti in Chloé’s wild shearling knee highs. Whilst Gucci X North Face proves that sturdy winter boots aren’t just for Alpine escapes – they look as good in the country and the city as they do on the mountain. As we get ready to slip into a pair of salopettes, here are the best snow-ready boots of the season.
QUILTED & PUFFER BOOTS
Up your après apparel game with oversized padded snow boots this winter. Nylon is the material of choice – and who does it better than Prada? For an extra dose of luxury, look to Valentino and Fendi for statement logos and gold hardware.
SHOP QUILTED BOOTS
From St Moritz to Verbier, Aspen to Courchevel, shearling is hard to beat when it comes to staying cosy. Luxuriously soft and stylish, this season’s Chloé X Moon Boot collab and Gucci’s horsebit snow boots with classic ‘GG Supreme’ print are high on our winter wishlists.

ELEVATED HIKING BOOTS
Need to stay warm? Nothing gets us hot under the collar like a collab between icons. Gucci X The North Face takes hiking boots to another level of functional luxury. Whether you’re contending with icy urban pavements or an Alpine trek, look for exaggerated proportions, colourful nylon laces and chunky treads at Prada, Bottega Veneta and Louboutin.
