Stylish Men's Winter Boots - Tips For Men

It's a tough pill to swallow, but the fact of the matter is, winter's on its way. And while those suede Chelsea boots may have been great for the brisk-but-harmless autumn months, they're just not going to cut it when the weather turns ugly. As we all know, snow, rain, and ice can wreak havoc on shoes. So get prepared with these pairs of winter boot . Your feet will thank you.

The Brogue Boot
There's actually a reason for broguing beyond simple aesthetics: Originally the brogue holes were added by Irish shoemakers to allow water to drain off the shoes when walking in wet weather. That functionality is long gone—the holes are now decorative—but the hefty soles and general durability remain. In terms of a dressier boot that can also handle the elements, you can't do much better.

The Blucher Boot
Originally developed by a Prussian general (Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher, hence the name) during the Napoleonic Wars to give Prussian soldiers more comfort and better protection for their feet, blucher boots are a perfect way to keep the elements out while still maintaining a professional look for the office.
The Combat Boot
The name "combat boot" may not exactly evoke images of office wear, but the truth is, a streamlined and polished pair can look amazing with either a suit or business casual. Just make sure not to tuck your trousers into them paratrooper-style.

The Dressy Hiking Boot
Fortunately hiking boots have been a major fashion trend for the last couple of winters, which means there's a whole host options that you can wear to the office. Just make sure they aren't too bulky, and are crafted from high-quality leather. You can even polish them up just like you would your regular dress shoes.

The Cap Toe Leather Boot
Similar to a blucher or derby, a cap-toe boot has the added advantage of extra leather on the toe, which gives it a little bit more protection from snow and rain. Plus, just as with cap-toe oxfords, it's a nice added element of style
