These waterproof boots are not only specially treated and sealant-taped to keep your feet bone-dry, but they’re also constructed with 200g Thinsulate and foam liner that’s comfort rated to -40F by the Performance Testing Council (PTC).
These boots are the epitome of rugged, winter style, without sacrificing warmth. The Pro-Dri waterproof membranes and the thermal insoles with radiant technology work together to keep the cold out; so much so that the boots are comfort rated to -22F.
Marcie Waterproof Snow Boot with Faux Fur Collar, Pajar ($240). Nordstrom, King of Prussia Mall, King of Prussia, 610-265-6111
Not a fan of wearing super-heavy footwear just to stay warm? These boots are proof you don’t have to—the nylon construction means they’re super lightweight, but they’re also comfortable (memory-foam insoles!), waterproof, and warm (temperature rated to -30F).
Though there’s no mention of a temperature rating for these men’s boots, the fact that they’re loaded with 400 grams of PrimaLoft insulation is a pretty good indicator that they’ll hold up in sub-freezing weather.
