Any New Yorker worth his salt-marred brogues knows that our winter streets are no place for the faint of foot.

Navigating the slush requires tough footwear that A) keeps your dogs warm and toasty, and B) helps you stay seasonally handsome.

Thusly, we present our Winter Boot Guide, your blueprint for stepping through the frigid months with sure-footed aplomb.


  • Ruggedly casual moccasins that pair nicely with jeans and a chunky sweater

  • Brawny-soled wingtips that navigate slick sidewalks and carpeted boardrooms with equal surety

  • High-top sneaks impenetrable to the elements.

And the heavy-duty duckies for when all hyperborean hell breaks loose.

Plus the shops where you can cop ‘em and the maps to get you there.

So step inside (har), pick a pair. Pick two, even.

It may be a long winter.
