Men's Winter Boot Trends 2016-17
Posted on Nov 20, 2016 by WinterBoots
And what are the top winter boot trends for the men in 2016-17? Comfort reigns in men's winter footwear this season, but there is no shortage of detail for guys wanting to make a statement.
The trendy Chelsea boot has been a staple in the footwear fashion world for the past few years and shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. By definition, the Chelsea is an ankle high boot that has an elastic side panel and usually a pull tab in the back. Their height makes them easy to wear with either a straight or wider leg. For guys who are expanding their look, the Chelsea men's boots are a stealth way to put your toe into the deeper end of the style pool without making too loud a splash. Two of our favorites: the Blundstone BL566 and the Baffin Copenhagen.
Winter boot manufacturers got smart a few seasons ago realizing that you can't take away the man's sneakers, but you can add cold weather features to make those beloved athletic shoes winter ready. Boot/sneaker options like the Merrell Turku Trek and the Timberland Adventure 2.0 Chukka aren't far off a classic Adidas but they will keep your feet dry! and your toes warm.
You don’t need to scale the nearest summit in order to take advantage of the hiking boot trend this season, though you certainly could in any of the options below! A rugged sole, smooth fit lacing and your choice of insulation make hiking boots the go-to boot for city dwellers or mountain types alike. Merrell and Salomon feature traditional hiking styles while Kodiak and Timberland offer more modern designs in the Kodiak Ballard and the Timberland Schazzberg Mid.
