Following this because I moved to Massachusetts from So Cal last year and what I thought were good winter boots was just laughable. And I need new boots too!

FrenchNewlyWed:  I still have a pair of Baffin snow boots that I got five years ago. They were almost $200 (so that’s less than $50 per year now, if you break it down) but they are great and have kept my feet warm in the -40* weather. That being said I don’t think that there is such a thing as winter boots that are pretty, warm, and suited for snow.

I live in Toronto, Ontario which sees a pretty cold, sloppy winter. I bought the Ugg adirondack boot and it’s completely waterproot and incredibly warm, I’ve had them for about 3 years now and there’s still in perfect condition. 

I have the black and grey ones, I found that they’re not nearly as ugly as most winter boots. These are the shorter ones, there are tall ones too: http://www.solestruck.com/ugg-australia-adirondack-boot-ii-black-grey/index.html

totally missed the part where you had a bad experience with sorel. i have had sorel’s for years and have never had a problem. northface and merrel also make pretty good quality, but i’ve never worn them, so i don’t know how they hold up.

FrenchNewlyWed:  This sounds nuts, but my Hunter boots got me through the brutal winter in the midwest last winter.  I wore them with the fleece liners, and they worked perfectly.  Being new to the midwest I assumed I’d have to get more heavy duty boots at some point, but I never did!

I love my boots – they really got me through the Prairie winters when I lived in Saskatchewan and have done well with the snow when I moved back to eastern Ontario.

amandajane4949: I was just going to suggest Sorel. Mine are great and sometimes you can find them at TJ Maxx or Marshalls.

HELLY HANSEN!!!!! They make awesome winter boots that are warm, light and cute.  They have far surpassed my sorels.  Sorels have never been the greatest, my feet always get cold in them and they are heavy and not that comfortable.

Ugg has good ones too and baffin is great too.

I’m in Montreal and I alternate between a pair of casual boots, like Ugg Adirondacks, and a pair of dressier boots by La Canadienne. Aquatalia by Marvin K are very nice but not suitable for slushy/wet conditions. Regular maintenance, like sprays or mink oil, helps, too.

FrenchNewlyWed:  +1 for Sorel and La Canadienne. For a more rugged boot I also like Timberlands which you can find at Timberland stores in Canada. Whatever you choose, make sure they are Waterproof, not just water resistant. Waterproof means no water will get in esp at the seams, while water resistant just means the material it’s made of doesn’t let water through, it can still come in through the seams.

In addition to Sorel, La Canadienne, there’s Blondo and Columbia (I’ve had a Columbia pair for 7 years, my feet always stay warm and dry.  I’m actually in the market for new ones because I’ve worn down the inside over the last few years.)
