Women’s casual footwear

Our Top Picks

Our top picks meet our minimum slip resistance standard for icy conditions.

If you are wondering why the top rated boots so far tested this year were only awarded one snowflakeclick here to learn about our rating system. Notice that 90% of the footwear we have tested so far didn’t even get one snowflake.

 

One snowflake is better than none.
