This Designer Makes Functional Yet Stylish Winter Boots, so I Tried Them

When most people think of Moncler, they think of the puffer coat that gives you instant cool status. Its coats are next-level, as they were originally designed to keep workers warm while they made expeditions in the mountains that approach the border of Switzerland. As the brand grew to be renowned in the fashion world during the '80s, it became known worldwide that all of its winter gear is designed to keep you warm and comfortable no matter how much snowfall hits overnight. And Moncler's snow boots are no exception.

Functionality is quite important to me as a New Yorker. We experience all four seasons, with winter being the most challenging to get through. I grew up with the comfort of only walking to and from my car on colder days, so living in New York and walking everywhere presented a challenge for me. One thing I've learned the hard way is that the right pair of boots makes all the difference. On a snowy day, sneakers will simply not do. It's important to have a few pairs of snow boots on deck. I like to have a pair that I don't mind getting absolutely trashed and then a pretty one to wear once the snow dust settles. Today, I write to you while wearing a pair of Moncler boots. Stay tuned for my review.

If you want to feel like your ankles are surrounded by a warm pillow, I just found the perfect pair of boots for you. It's essentially like wearing a puffer coat but on your feet, which is something that I'm most definitely here for. I love that they can tie up tighter for extra warmth and to avoid letting the snow fall into them. The lug soles are the perfect finishing touch.

Sierra Mayhew was always destined to work in fashion, but she didn't know it at first. Growing up with no choice but to wear a rotation of school uniforms and activewear, her love for fashion really blossomed when she moved away for college and was able to finally define her very own personal style. Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor. When she’s not working, you can catch her always trying to catch a flight, rollerblading through New York City traffic, or exploring the latest luxury vintage boutique.
