The leaves are changing, the temperatures are dropping and the snowy season is on the horizon. But those boots in the back of your closet—the ones that you meant to replace last year—might not make it through this season. Plus, the options out there are overwhelming. It’s hard to decide which kind of boots you really need!
We’ve assembled a pros and cons list of our favorite kinds of stylish yet practical women’s winter boots in Rochester Hills, MI. Read about the four major categories of winter boots, and decide which makes sense for your needs. Then come check out the selection at Haig Shoes!
Women’s pac boots
When you’re living in a snowy climate, pac boots are usually the best and most versatile option. They’re winter boots with a thick rubber shell around the bottom of the boot, which helps make them waterproof. Often, they will come with an insulated liner that can be removed.
We love boots with removable linings because they dry faster than others. A great example of a stylish, versatile pac boot is the Ugg Aldon boot. Although snow boots are great for everyday wear too, if you’re only buying one pair of winter boots this year, you’ll get more mileage out of choosing the perfect pac boot.

Women’s active winter hiking boots
Hiking boots are designed for activity, so you’ll generally find that they’re meant to wick moisture away from your feet and keep your feet toasty warm, but not sweaty. They have extra, softer traction in order to grip the slick, rocky terrain in winter. Generally, they’re less stylish, so if you’re looking for both fashion and practicality, you might want to try another option. On the other hand, they fit well with the ‘90s fashion revival—so if you’re looking for something practical that you can wear every day, winter hiking boots can do the trick.
Women’s snow boots
Snow boots are usually water-resistant, not waterproof, and are best for walking around town or for very light hiking. They have the benefit of being more in style than pac or hiking boots. However, their traction varies, so you’ll want another option if you intend to do anything more strenuous than a simple hike on a relatively clear day. We love snow boots for everyday use in the cold, wet winter weather. For these, we love and carry Ugg boots, especially the gorgeous Bailey Button Triplet II.
