6 of the best men’s boots for Winter adventures

Needless to say, the weather in winter is not as favourable as you’ll find in the spring and summer months so you need boots made of tougher stuff when heading out into the wild. Luckily, there is no shortage of options in this regard and we take a look at 6 of the best men’s boots for winter adventures below:


Ridgemont Outfitters Monty HI Boots – $99


The Monty Hi Boot from Ridgemont Outfitter ($99) is an ode to the classic light hikers of the 80s and will tackle any outdoor adventure with aplomb. This was always one of the brand’s favourite styles, and they were saddened to see this silhouette following the same path as the average middle-aged person’s waistline by disappearing without a trace. These great looking and wonderfully well priced boots have a high quality oiled suede with DWR coating, antique brass eyelets & speedhooks and a bespoke Ridgemont gum rubber lugged sole for superior traction & grip with impact absorbing eva mid-sole. ($99)


Adidas Terrex Free Hiker Parley Hiking Boots – $200


Crafted from upcycled waste intercepted from beaches and coastal communities, Parley Ocean Plastic turns plastic into performance. The Adidas Terrex Free Hiker Parley Boots ($200) uses Adidas’ most responsive cushioning technology ever. The full-length Boost midsole delivers endless energy return in any temperature and high adaptability on rocky surfaces. These boots have a Continental rubber outsole which ensures an extraordinary grip. ADAPTIVE TRAXION allows the shoe to adapt to any terrain and uneven surfaces. ($200)


Danner Pub Garden Boots – $190


Boasting a premium leather upper which is highly robust and classically stylish, these Danner Pub Garden Boots ($190) will make short work of all your outdoor adventures this winter. They have a 100% waterproof barrier which lets moisture escape without letting water in, keeping your feet dry and comfortable all day long – whatever the weather. The removable Ortholite footbed uses three layers of varying density that are combined for maximum cushioning and support and the entire footbed is made of open-cell polyurethane for better heat dissipation and air circulation. ($190)


All Weather Duck Boot – $188


Every design element of the All-Weather Duck Boot ($188) was carefully considered to contribute to its ideal combination of rugged, boot-like performance and the all-day comfort of a lightweight pair of sneakers and that makes them alright in our book here at Coolector HQ. These rough and ready boots are built for comfort with a soft, cushy insole, shock-absorbing midsole, and breathable membrane that wicks away moisture. They also offer a rugged, all-terrain performance in any conditions courtesy of the durable, full-grain leather uppers, a tough rubberised leather rand, and tread designed for traction in all elements. ($188)


On Cloud Hi Boots – $170


These On Cloud Hi Boots ($170) have an upper built from vegan leather and suede with durable canvas for a stylish aesthetic and robust performance. They use a proprietary and innovative CloudTec® outsole structure which cushions both horizontal and vertical forces for a very light, comfortable running sensation and will give your feet all the protection they require for your winter walks and adventures. The unique Swiss-engineered Speedboard™ turns force into forward motion and they have a speed-lace system for easy on and off shoes that stay in place securely. ($170)


Oliver Sweeney Citerna Grey Boots – £379


The Norwegian welt on these Oliver Sweeney Citerna Grey Boots (£379) boasts a practical sturdy construction with an additional stitch row through the welt to fortify the join between the upper and the sole – something that makes these boots ideal for winter hikes out in the wild. Oliver Sweeney have added the practical lightweight St Moritz cleated sole and teamed this with oiled calf suede uppers for a dapper look combined with a no nonsense performance. The oil provides water repellent properties, but also creates a great casual, lived in look that looks as good in the taproom as the great outdoors. As you’d expect, there is a leather lining and insock alongside a series of ski hooks and a lace tab keep the foot comfortably well positioned and allow that all important ‘give’ up hill and down dale. (£379)
