When the weather is this cold, this wet and this treacherous, only a proper alpine boot will do. Good thing that hiker styles have never been more popular. That's probably because, unlike some trends, these boots are as practical as they are stylish—helping you trek through winter's harshest conditions while keeping your feet dry and looking damn good while doing it. And you will be able to wear them year after year (even after Gorpcore runs its course), so you might as well invest. But which is right for you? We tried on a handful of pairs to bring you three smart options, in a range of price points. But don't worry, they all look great and can stand up to everything from a city slush puddle to an icy mountain trail.
