Up until now, myself and dc have always made do with wellies but have decided to treat ourselves to some snow boots. Loads of choice for kids but apart from the really expensive lovely north face ones I've seen for myself, Im not sure if the shell type fabric ones are a bit 'old lady' ish. I have seen a few pairs that I like but am unsure if they are going to put 20 years on me!
Do you wear snow boots and if so, any recommendations would be appreciated.

I have some from Next, think its these

I'm waiting for a pair of Sorels to arrive. I've also come to the conclusion that my feet won't grow anymore and I'm fed up with cold but dry (wellies) or warm (uggs) but not waterpoof.
I've seen so many people in normal ballet pumps this week.

Some fur-topped Bearpaws from TK Maxx, they are a bit 'mum-boot' but they've coped with snow and slush really well. £40 in November IIRC.

I have a pair as I am going skking in two weeks...I have been wearing them for the last week...they are soooo comfy!

I bought some Romika Arktis black ones in the Shoon sale last year and they've been great. They're waterproof as well as fur-lined, and thick soled so keep the cold out.

Merrell winterbelles they are fugly but toasty

Carrie, only just seen your reply, been on the lands end website and they've got my boots for £40 but only in cream or purple. The purple is nice but don't know if they're a bit bright for boots, anyone got that colour? Will keep watching the website in case the black or brown come up in my size, what a bargain

sooo many lovely suggestions but I am leaning towards the Merrell Oslo's and Lands End Powder Run, both look warm and cosy as well as looking nice too - both more pricey than I had anticipated though hmm
I think the Brucie bonus of these though is that they could be used as a warm winter boot, not just in the snow which is rapidly disappearing here! Am going to trawl tinternet to see if I can find anyone selling either of these a bit cheaper than what I've seen so far, am on a mission now!

Sorrel boots here. They are brilliant, v warm and give a good grip on ice.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Thu 24-Jan-13 12:21:51

I've got some Tresspass ones (black ,waterproof with a zip and a toggley thing)

I would rather look old lady-ish than fall on my backside grin

I have today bought some in the Land's End sale (extra 25% off today), with some waterproof thermal gloves. We don't get loads of snow here in the SW, so hopefully these will last me for a very, very long time. Sledging with the children and snowball fights just aren't that fun when your gloves are cold and wet, and your wellies leave you with numb toes!

About 2 winters ago I decided that snow boots were the way to go for weeks like we have just had. So I bought some Lands' End kids snow boots in the sale (they go up to size 5 so you don't have to have tiny tiny feet for them). But I do only wear them when it is actually snowy or slushy.

I also have a pair of the Brasher winter lined knee length boots for more presentable days. I decided that as my feet don't grow like children's do, that I won't grow out of them and they will last for years. I hope.

I have something almost identical to this Next snow boots - I bought them 2 years ago when we had the really heavy snow. They are brilliant, so warm & waterproof and fleecy lined.

I got these last week, my feet have been super-cosy & they actually look pretty good too - am v pleased.

HolgerDanske Thu 24-Jan-13 10:16:42

I got some from Animal for £12.50 down from £65, they've been great this week, cosy and warm and i can sludge through muddy, mushy snow no problem. i'd say it's definitely worth it

I have very chunky calves - can only get boots from Duo. The Oslo fits fine on me.

EuroShagmore Wed 23-Jan-13 23:04:39

I have these:

They are amazing. V warm and they have a bit one the soles you can flip out to give you extra traction when it is really icy. I think snow and rock has sold out now though as they are no longer showing on the website.

CointreauVersial Wed 23-Jan-13 22:39:10

I bought a pair a couple in years ago in the sales, as I get really cold feet in the snow.

They are nothing fashionable, but only £15 from Milletts.

If you want cheap and functional, Groupon often do them.

MegBusset Wed 23-Jan-13 22:38:47

The Oslos have a lace-up bit at the back so adjustable for wide calves.

Drywhiteplease Wed 23-Jan-13 22:31:00

I bought these 2yrs ago with thermal insoles my feet are never cold and they are really waterproof.....look good too.

wheresthecake Wed 23-Jan-13 22:27:47

I have chunky calves-can't fit into normal knee high boots-would the merrell Oslo be too narrow or are they a widish fit?

cougar72 Wed 23-Jan-13 22:01:07

Mine are Merrell Prevoz Highly recommended as I have warm dry toes and can also wear them on a normal cold day and not look like a plonker!

herbaceous Wed 23-Jan-13 21:40:13

I've got a pair of merrell dauphines, bought in a sale, and hey haven't been off my feet for weeks. Super comfy, warm and grippy, and good for country type walks whether its snowing or not. Most impressed.

shopafrolic Wed 23-Jan-13 21:24:49

These are mine
Bought super cheap in the Netherlands so probably not much use but so cosy and waterproof

mrsharkness2 Wed 23-Jan-13 21:22:31

Oo thank you for all your replies, seems like I'm behind with getting myself some snow boots then!
Quite a few different ones to look at there, will start at the top and work my way down, feel quite excited about my first pair of snow boots now!
Thanks everyone xxx
