The 28 Essential Shoes You Need in Your Wardrobe This Winter

Everything from weatherproof boots to must-have clogs and loafers.

Footwear is probably one of the trickiest when it comes to styling for cold winter days, especially if you’re preparing for rain and snow throughout the chillier months. Whether you’re on the lookout for functional shoes like weatherproof boots, or searching for cozy options like mules and clogs to keep your feet warm, we’ve put together a list of must-have shoes this winter season.

Rainproof footwear from brands like Hunter and Moncler are designed to protect your feet from the cold, in addition to technical designs like Salomon‘s sneaker boot and JW Anderson‘s padded silhouette. If you’re looking for comfy options for your casual fits throughout the months, consider cozy clogs from Crocs, UGG, Hunter or YUME YUME.

Sneakers are must-haves regardless of the season, which is why we’ve included staples from brands such as New Balance, Nike and ASICS. We’re also spotlighting ankle and knee-high boots from the likes of Chloé and GANNI, while our list is complete with loafers and fuzzy slides.

Continue scrolling to see the most essential footwear you need in your rotation this winter season.
