If you ask me what I enjoy about winter, I’ll tell you honestly: not much. Sure the holidays are great, but it’s cold, it’s dark, and dog-walking when it’s -30 °C outside is an absolute nightmare. 

I’d much rather spend my time indoors, but when I have to be outside in the winter, there’s only one thing I’ve found that makes it bearable: my Ugg Adirondack III Boots. The perfect combination of comfort and function, these winter boots have gotten me through the last three winters intact, without the dreaded wet or cold feelings of other winter boots I’ve tried.

Made from ultra-soft sherpa-lined leather, the Adirondack III Boots are designed to tackle the harshest of winter conditions and can handle temperatures down to -32 °C. They’re also completely waterproof, making them my ideal choice for snowy and icy conditions.

Built to last, reviewers have shared that these boots have lasted for over a decade, making them well worth their $295 price tag. If you’re looking to try out a pair for yourselves, thanks to Ugg’s Boxing Week deals right now you actually can score them for $250

“Owned my first pair for 10 years, just bought my second pair,” wrote one happy reviewer. “These boots are so warm I wear them without socks all winter long!”

“I live in a cold and snowy climate for much of the year and these boots are a total lifesaver,” added another. “Not only are they very durable, waterproof, have great traction in the snow... withstand practically subzero temperatures, [but] I feel like I'm walking on a cloud they are that comfy.”

Available in four different colours in the classic height, the Adirondack boots also come in a tall version for extra warmth, which is also included in the current sale that knocks 15 per cent off all regular-priced items. 

Personally, I’m a fan of the chestnut colour that features a tan and black exterior along with an off-white sherpa lining, which I’ve worn on countless occasions over the years with jeans and oversized sweater for a cute yet functional winter look.

I will say that although they’re on the chunkier side, these boots are lightweight enough that they can be worn for hours outside without feeling bulky. Thanks to their thick rubber sole, I’ve also never had any issues with slipping, even on the iciest of winter days.

Just make sure that when you’re heading out the door that you give yourself some extra time, since they don’t have a zipper closure and can take a little time to lace up.
