UGG Azaria Women’s Boot

For something a little more fashionable, try these boots from UGG. Made from 100% waterproof leather, with a brushed twill lining, and UggPure insole, you’ll be warm, dry, and stylish. Available in 3 colors.

Amazon User Review: Bought these before a trip to Iceland, and didn't even think to break them in before or spray them with a protector until I was sitting on the plane and it was way too late! Wore them everyday for 9 days, through (a little) snow, rain, mud, rocky paths, etc. and they were perfect. My only small complaint is that the laces need a double knot to stay put, but that's very minor. They were very warm when paired with light wool socks. Decent traction. Definitely waterproof. Not too heavy or bulky feeling. And I know I will continue to wear them all winter in Chicago! A+”

KEEN Women’s Elsa Snow Boot


Keen is one of our favorite go-to sandal brands, and they are no different when it comes to boots. The Elsa boot is comfortable, has a breathable leather lining, rubber sole, and will keep your feet dry, cozy and comfy during your cold weather vacation.

Amazon User Review: These boots are amazing. The picture doesn't do it justice. The fur lining goes all the way down the boot. The boot is wide, which was perfect for me. The sole has great traction (you can feel it as you walk). The best thing about this boot is it is lighter weight than another brand of snow boots I own. I don't think I'll experience leg fatigue with these. They are exactly what I had hoped for!”
