Bring on the snow, you’ll be ready with these stylish boots


The weather forecast says to expect flurries next week.  Forget slipping
and sliding around in flats.  Be prepared for icy conditions with one
of these options that are cool enough to wear indoors.

The gear

1. Who said all Uggs have to come in that classic duck-bill shape? The Edmonton is not only handsome and waterproof, it’s got that super-soft sheepskin lining that made us first fall in love with the brand. Ugg Edmonton, $350,

2. OK, sometimes even when it’s snowing you have to look cute. And these platform booties have rubber soles and are lined in shearling to keep you warm — and a good four inches taller. Loeffler Randall Serena platform bootie, $213,

3. Stand out from the sea of plastic rain boots and school the streets with Tretorn’s new part-boot, part-sneaker creation. The Sherpa lining and eco-friendly, breathable insole will keep you comfy, cozy and dry while bright laces keep your cred in check. Tretorn Highlander boot vinter, $160,

4. This option is a no-brainer: The super-insulated, waterproof boot — made with leather over Neo-Tech — is also slip-proof and will keep your feet toasty even in subzero conditions. But really, they had us with the cool equestrian design. Bogs McKenna, $170,
