We’re stomping over snow this year.
Time is running out before the world is covered in a grey-brown snow sludge that you’ll want nowhere near you. Sadly, to get to where you need to go, you’ll have to face the elements, but that’s where platform winter boots come in and save the day. Adding a little more chunk to your soles does even more than add height. The extra cushioning makes them incredibly comfortable to wear day after day, storm after storm.

When it comes to heavy-duty, you’ll want ASOS’ Chunky Lace-Up Boots ($34, ASOS). The boots go up to mid-calf for maximal protection, but you don’t have to run your fingers ragged lacing them up every day. Conveniently, these shoes zip up for easy wear.
Chains are not just for your neck. Instead, you can spruce up your stomping boots with the punkish accessory. And despite the massive platforms, Yes Style’s Combat Boots ($61, Yes Style) are lightweight and easy to spend all day in.
Skip the hassle of lacing up your shoes because of the graphic and functional zipper front on UO’s Platform Boot ($50, Urban Outfitters). “These boots are so comfortable,” one reviewer wrote. “[I] wore them to work and a concert right after, and honestly, it was so comfy! No need to break in either.”
You can’t go wrong by focusing your entire winter on Gen Z’s favorite color chocolate brown, and your shoes can match with Missguided’s Chunky Sole Boots ($42, Missguided). These shoes make a great base for your monochromatic ‘fit.
Two pairs of socks aren’t always enough to keep your toes warm, which is why you’ll want the fur-lined Chunky Ankle Boots ($46, Sam and Oleander). You just may want to order a half-size up to ensure your socks can fit against the lining.
