Snow boots vs. winter shoes

Men's snow boots vs. winter shoes – why would you need both?

These days, there are many kinds of winter weather. One morning might be snowy, the next wet and slushy, and then you might experience a warm spell or a few weeks of biting, dry cold. You'll need more than one pair of winter shoes or men's warm winter boots to endure a shifting climate, and Lands' End has you covered.

When the rough weather hits, you need tough snow boots. Try something like our lined duck boots which have 600 grams of Thermolite® insulation and remain incredibly cozy in the snow. They're also waterproof, so you can walk through icy puddles without a second thought.

Before the flakes start falling, you might want something a little lighter. Men's All Weather Mocs are great when you're between seasons, and take you from autumn to winter in total comfort. The rugged sole adds traction to help stop you from slipping on icy ground, while the cushioned footbed and padded collar provide support.

Our winter shoes are also great if you live somewhere with mild weather that doesn't require boots. They'll get you through wet and windy days just fine, thanks to the tough materials we use. You can also wear them with almost anything, including your favorite jeans.

However, a pair of men's waterproof winter boots will come in handy if you travel. A Christmas visit to the in-laws in Colorado or a ski trip calls for something that can endure a blizzard. Look for a removable felt liner for easy cleaning and drying.

Wool socks add warmth whether you're wearing men's shoes or waterproof boots, so have some handy. Wool is also better than cotton, as it insulates your feet even when wet. It also draws away moisture, so you won't feel sweaty, either.
