A pair of waterproof insulated boots that are under $50
Sporty and durable without breaking the bank, these insulated winter boots have a non-stick strong grip on the sole and toggle at the top to keep in heat and keep out water and snow. They're waterproof and are said to keep your feet warm in weather up to 25 degrees below zero. They're a classic snow boot that you won't hate to wear when shoveling or moving around in the snow.

A pair of non-slip winter hiking boots with removable fur
Another budget-friendly option, these hiking boots will work on the trail and in the city. They have removable fleece insoles to keep your feet toasty on cooler days.

A stylish pair of EVA boots with a microfleece lining
If there's one thing I'm always looking for, it's adult shoes that look like they could be in the kids section — that, and anything that looks like the iconic Danner hiking boots for less than $300. You can imagine my excitement then when earlier this winter I snagged a pair of these colorful EVA booties with eye-catching laces. The brand says they're water-resistant but as of this week, I have worn them in pretty severe snow and my little piggies were perfectly dry, even after walking for a while. The inner part sucks your foot in and really keeps snow and slush from getting in there and the round toe shape gives your feet tons of room.

Promising review: "So far so good. They're comfortable and kept my feet dry when walking on wet pavement." — Avis C.
A timeless, versatile pair of waterproof, all-terrain Blundstones
A brand that needs little introduction, Blundstones are the Australian lug-sole Chelsea boots you've probably seen everywhere. They're incredibly comfortable, last for years and look amazing dressed up or down. While I can attest the regular leather pair does well in the snow, the specific all-terrain, waterproof pair have weatherproof soles, removable sheepskin footbeds and double stitching for more durability.

Promising review: "Very comfortable, very well made. Great easy on everyday use shoe." — Bob
L.L. Bean
A pair of shearling-lined insulated Bean boots
Another age-old classic, L.L. Bean boots are made in Maine from high-quality leather and waterproof rubber bottoms. This pair comes lined with their extra-soft and warm shearling, making them feel like slippers whenever you put them on. They're stylish enough to wear during the day without sacrificing function and warmth.

Promising review: "I waited 3x months on back-order - totally worth it! Comfortable from the first wear, and now I don't have to worry about what Mother Nature throws at me. I wear a 7.5 usually - ordered a 7 reg. - as advised because I don't intend to wear incredibly thick socks - perfect fit. Couldn't be happier!" — Lepadouen
A pair of Columbia Bugaboot boots
Columbia is a strong name in the outdoor gear game and their winter boots are no different. The Bugaboot gives you ample support through your ankle, with lightweight insulation and midsole cushioning keeping you dry and stable. The traction outsole keeps you stable on the slush and ice.

On the sportier end of the spectrum, Muck Boots are great for wet, muddy climates or super snowy and slushy areas.

Sturdy and comfortable, the mid rise gives you ankle support in bad weather and the protective rubber toe cap keeps your toes dry and comfortable. Though they're made for hiking, they're not too bulky and they look great when styled with trousers or denim, in addition to hiking gear or snow pants.
