The Absolute Best Shoes for the Snow

When you’re purchasing a pair of snow boots, it’s important to look for a few key details. First, a sole with a grippy material (no one wants to slip and slide on a fresh pile of powdery snow). Sorel seals nearly all of its boots with a seam-sealed waterproof construction feature. Second, a cozy lining (to keep your toes warm, obviously).
