Winter boots are essential items for the colder weather — especially in Canada — and if they don’t keep our feet warm, dry and cozy, they’re not worth it.
When it comes to shopping for footwear, we tend to look for comfort and fashion — but with winter boots there is a whole other list of criteria.
The winter boots need to be warm and have slip-resistant soles to combat those icy sidewalks we’re all afraid of slipping on. It’s also important to make sure you purchase water-resistant boots because melting snow leads to wet socks and that isn’t enjoyable for anyone.

The Dream Pairs women's mid-calf winter snow boots will keep your feet warm and comfortable during all the cold temperatures this winter season, mixed with ice, slush and snow.
These durable and water-resistant winter boots promise to keep your feet warm and dry with their 200g Thermolite insulation that stands up to -31 °C temperatures.
The selling point of these boots is a tie between the seam-sealed water-resistant construction and the soft plush faux fur lining that will keep your feet warm all day long.
The Dream Pairs boots also have slip-resistant soles to provide traction to help keep you from slipping on those extremely icy days.
The faux fur trim at the top of the boot adds warmth and comfort but also style. This boot is available in 28 different styles including monte beige white and river tan khaki. The brand suggests ordering a size up for a loose fit.
Why shoppers love them
With a 4.2-star rating, these winter boots are shopper-approved.
“I bought myself a pair of boots similar to these and my daughter loved them. I got her these and she said they are very warm,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “She has wide feet and they are snug but they do fit. For the price, you can't go wrong! We live in Northern Ontario with -30C or colder and they are warm,”
Another customer said his wife loves these boots.
“Wife loves them. I think mainly because she likes the look of them. It's a guessing game as to what her reasoning is on anything, but they must also have fit well enough and be reasonably comfortable or I'm sure I would have heard about it,” the customer added.
Another customer said boots were great for walking their dog in cold temperatures.
“Great for walking my dog Elsa-Rose in cold temperatures. Boots arrived sooner than expected,” added the reviewer. “Very well packaged. Fit is perfect (8 US). Will certainly recommend to my doggy friends for walking in cold weather.”
“Super comfy, just as pictured, very happy with these boots! I wasn’t sure they would fit my size 12 feet but they fit perfectly. Came a day later than expected but the shipping was free so not a big deal at all,” raved another satisfied customer.
