8 of the best men’s boots for winter

Needless to say, winter is the season when boots are the go-to form of footwear for most men but finding the right pair for you can be a touch tricky. Finding some boots that match your boots and style persuasion gets a lot easier with brands like Huckberry around and their well-stocked digital shelves chock full of great looking men’s boots for winter. Check out our pick of 8 of the best below:

All Weather Duckboot ($188)

Every feature of the All-Weather Duckboot ($188) was carefully considered to ensure that it played its part in delivering the ideal combination of rugged, boot-like performance and the all-day comfort of a lightweight pair of sneakers. Crafted for comfort with a soft, cushy insole, shock-absorbing midsole, and breathable membrane that wicks away moisture. Great style, performance and versatility. ($188)

Lems Boulder Boots ($125)

Lems has significantly improved their already excellent Boulder Boot with an even more rugged leather material that makes them more adventure-ready than ever before. Now, they are stain- and moisture- resistant so it’ll hold a clean and classic look for many more woodland walks — and puddles. But what we love the most about these boots here at Coolector HQ is the weight and versatility. At a featherlight 9.9 oz., the Boulder Boot is the ideal travel ally, as the heel and toe can be completely folded together to save space — making it perfect for stuffing into a pack during a hike and wearing around the campfire afterwards. ($125)

Danner Skyridge Boots ($160)

The Danner Skyridge Boots ($160) are a responsive and lightweight pair of hikers with an abundance of style for wearing around town. The uppers are made from a soft suede and cotton ripstop for a robust, adventure-ready boot that’s comfortable right out of the box. Danner’s Dry barrier is 100% waterproof but still allows moisture to escape so your feet stay cool on warmer days. The multidirectional lugs on the rubber outsole provide great traction and for all town-to-trail excursions. ($160)

Rhodes Owen Boots ($265)

The Owen Boot from Rhodes ($265) has been purpose built for everyday wearability and long-lasting comfort. Each pair is made in a family-run factory in Leon, the bootmaking capital of Mexico, and the leather is sourced from a tannery just down the road. Each time you thread the laces through the easy-on speed hooks, you’ll see the leather subtly ageing with a glorious patina that will be unique to you and your adventures. Recraftable welt construction ensures that a cobbler will make short work of replacing the sole and you’ll be back in your favourite everyday boots in short order. High quality materials, best-in-class craftsmanship, fully resoleable—in other words, this is a pair of boots you can depend on for a lifetime of service. ($265)

Rancourt & Co Wolf Boots ($395)

The Wolf Boot, handcrafted by Rancourt & Co and available exclusively at Huckberry is a real favourite piece of footwear for us here at Coolector HQ. Each pair is crafted from Snuff Kudu leather, from UK’s Stead Tannery, that will develop a personalised patina over time. The Blake welt construction is resoleable when the sole is worn out or damaged and the full-grain leather midsole has a storm welt to keep moisture out. Each pair is handmade in Maine with Horween leather made in Chicago. ($395)

SeaVees Coronado Boots ($112)

The Coronado Boot from SeaVees ($112) takes one of our favourite silhouettes of the season – namely, the Chelsea boot – and does a great job of dressing it down with a gum rubber sneaker sole that guarantees long-lasting flexibility and has superior grip out on the wilderness trail (or urban landscapes). Add in the slip-on convenience and SeaVees’ signature memory foam footbed that’s purpose-built to keep your feet comfortable day in, day out and you’ve one cool boot on your feet. ($112)

Nicks Urban Drifter Boots ($529)

Boasting a classic 6” work boot design with impressive grip from the deep lug outsole, the Nicks Urban Drifter Boots ($529) won’t let you down wherever your adventures take you. Each pair is crafted from USA-sourced and tanned brown Chromexcel leather from the legendary Horween tannery in Chicago so there is a tangible sense of quality to the touch with these rough and ready boots. The leather insole molds to your foot and each pair comes with a pair of robust, leather laces. ($529)

Moonstar Alweather Boots ($230)

In a distant shoe laboratory in the depths of Japan, a mad scientist has just devised a whole new kind of sneaker boot that’s unlike anything we’ve seen before here at Coolector HQ – say hello to the Moonstar Alweather Boots ($230). Combining the casual-cool comfort of a plimsoll sneaker and the rugged weatherproofing of a duck boot, the Alweather has a totally unique aesthetic, and that’s why we’re so fond of them. Add in vulcanization done by a handful of skilled experts that use wood-fired kilns and handmade quality that’s undeniable when you get your feet in them, and rainy season doesn’t stand a chance. ($230)
