These insulated winter boots were a little girly for my taste but extremely functional in wet, slushy weather. They have a plush fur lining to block out snow, and the lacing system is very secure. The Vibram soles are great for tread, but the shoe felt a little high for me, almost like a platform boot—perhaps because they’re filled with PrimaLoft, arch support, and a cushioned heel to absorb shock. But platform or no, I do love these moon boots. (And note the snowflake design on the ankle!) $125; merrell.com.
