Top 3 Winter Shoe Trends to Watch in 2022

The approaching winter season means it’s time to take stock of your winter footwear collection. Luckily, there are many ways to keep your feet warm and protected this winter while still being stylish. Here are a few of the biggest winter shoe trends to look out for in 2022.

Opt for a pair of…

1. Classic, Utilitarian Winter Boots

To rock a classic choice that’s still very on trend this year, grab a pair of Timberland boots — a popular choice for both men’s and women’s winter boots. The brand even makes shoes for the youngest members of the family so that everyone can match. 

Our pick, if you’re looking for style and function, is the classic Timberland Premium Waterproof Boot, available in both women’s sizes and men’s sizes. These boots are made with a nubuck leather upper and padded leather collar around the ankle. They also feature PrimaLoft ECO Insulation that maintains warmth even when wet and anti-fatigue technology that provides geometric cone support, shock absorption, and energy. Not to mention, they feature rustproof hardware for added durability. 

2. Sneaker Boot Styles With Insulation 

You can’t get much more versatile than a boot with some of the design characteristics of a sneaker. This year, we’ll see lots of boots that have this stylish take, including the Mt. Maddsen Waterproof Hiking Boots from Timberland. 

These boots feature the TimberDry™ membrane designed to keep your feet drying even when faced with harsh winter weather. These boots are also made of 15% recycled rubber, making them not only a popular fashion accessory but also an eco-conscious sneaker option. 

Looking for a bolder look with pops of color? Consider the Euro Hiker Waterproof Boots, which feature a waterproof membrane and high-rebound EVA foam midsole. 

You can also find shoes like these from iconic sneaker brands such as the Air Max Goattera 2.0 Boots featuring a full-length Air Max unit for response and impact protection, or the adidas Nizza Trek Sneaker Boots with a grippy rubber sole and aggressive tread pattern. 

3. Platform Boots With Grip

Platform boots are another classic design with a lot of history dating back to the Greeks in 200 B.C. While you may think of platforms in heels or sneakers, they can also add some extra style to the winter boots you use to keep your feet insulated and dry. 

One of our favorites is Timberland’s Sky 6-Inch Lace Up Boots with a heel height of 2.5 inches. These boots also feature a ReBOTL™ fabric lining that is made from eco-friendly recycled materials and features an OrthoLite® footbed to provide support during all your favorite winter activities.
