If you live somewhere that actually experiences winter (no offense, L.A.), you know that once the temperatures drop, you’re pretty much living in boots, as far as shoes are concerned. As a New Yorker, my footwear preferences are very specific, as I’m on my feet a good deal during my commute, and after serious trial and error, I’m happy to report that I’ve successfully curated my winter ankle boot selection to be the best yet.
Including trendy boots, practical boots, and everything in between, below I’ve shopped out my top 10 favorite winter ankle boots that I personally own, love, and couldn’t live without for you to hopefully shop for yourselves as well. Every single pair listed below has gotten me through the toughest of weather and the chicest of nights, and if you let them, they will be just as beneficial for you and your winter adventures.
I bought these the second I moved to New York and was too prideful to invest in legit snow boots. Thanks to the chunky platform sole and the indestructible nature of this brand, I’ve worn these through rain, snow, slush, and shine, and have never looked back.
In case you haven't noticed from my jargon thus far, I tend to lack outfit inspiration come winter, which is why I rely heavily on my footwear assortment to do all the heavy lifting. These multicolor snakeskin boots do exactly that (and have for two seasons now).
So these aren’t the exact Tibi boots I own… The ones I own are now gone due to the fact that I’ve owned them for three years. I wear them so much (in fact, I’m wearing them as I write this) that I’m convinced that any pair of Tibi boots are worth investing in.
