Winter boots are twofold: Some help you trudge through the snow and keep your feet nice and toasty. But then there are the less practical, more trend-oriented boots that are nearly impossible to pass up when the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Meghan Markle are wearing them. But guess what: Celebs provide plenty of inspiration on practical footwear for winter, too.

Katie Holmes, for one, knows the value of sensible shoes. Stepping out in New York City last week, she braved the chilly weather in the coziest Sorel x Chloé boots that look like a dream to wear. On the other end of the spectrum, we can't knock a pair of high-heeled, knee-high boots, either. Scroll down to see how celebrities wear winter boots, and shop the key pieces to re-create their outfits.

Practical Boots

When it comes to practical options, you'll want to look for details like lug soles, waterproof materials, and cozy interiors to protect you from the cold. (For less practical boots à la J.Lo, keep scrolling.)

Next, the winter trends four celebs (and their moms!) all agree on

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
