If this year has taught us anything about fashion, it’s that our most comfortable and functional staples are always a good investment. Now with the winter season upon us, there’s no item more top of mind than the always-essential pair of boots. Forget the thigh-highs and tiny heels of the past, the boots that are stopping our social media scroll right now are the ones with that covetable mix of versatility and style.
When it comes to finding the perfect pair of winter boots, our favorite fashion follows on social media are already ahead of the curve. Just turn to these five inspiring and undeniably chic tastemakers to find the SOREL boots that prove the best winter style starts at the sole.
Alison Stroming @alisonstroming
Look to the toes of professional ballet dancer Alison Stroming, for some seriously on point boot recs. The Brazilian native knows all about the importance of finding a comfortable and well-crafted shoe that can support her arches all day. Her Lolla II Cut-out Booties—equipped with a cushy EVA footbed that feels like memory foam—are a great choice for anyone looking for a little freedom of moment and a fresh spin on a classic style. When it comes to color, just follow Stroming’s advice: “Never play it safe, and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.”
Aly Rae @alyraeeee
Model and breast cancer survivor Aly Rae never fails to find an uplifting message in every fashion moment. The style star’s social media posts practically beam with positivity, and isn’t that exactly the way we always want fashion to make us feel? Ray’s Evie Lace Booties are a step in an optimistic direction—their comfy wedge heel offers an effortless amount of lift, and their easy-grip sole is made to keep you standing strong in uncertain winter weather. “There’s power in every single one of us,” says Ray, and these boots take us one step closer to channeling it.
Deja Foxx @dejafoxx
For social justice activist Deja Foxx, standing up for a cause sometimes requires a pair of comfortable shoes. The Gen Z influencer is no stranger to tackling an uphill battle in style, so take cues from her fashion-forward hiker boots for a look that’s right for the seasonal moment. The Blake Lace-up Bootie is designed to tackle all the important issues when it comes to winter weather (think: waterproof leather and rubber traction), but don’t underestimate the power of its stacked heel to stand out in the crowd. As Foxx says in her post, this time is about “putting one foot in front of the other to take better steps for the future.”
Even though the world may seem to have slowed down, Shavone still considers herself “a woman in motion.” The dynamic musician, artist, and entrepreneur has been staying on her feet with creative projects while still serving up style that pushes the envelope. Her chunky-heeled Blake Booties are an effortlessly edgy option that has the potential to take an outfit just about anywhere—even if it’s only to the grocery store. Let these booties be a reminder to exercise those creative fashion muscles wherever you can find them this season.
Ally Maki @allymaki
LA-based actress and advocate Ally Maki has mastered stay-at-home style. But beyond the chic sets of matching loungewear and statement hoops, turn to Maki’s feed to find the boots you can really live in this winter. Her Joan of Arctic Puffy Booties pack in next-level comfort with a soft microfleece lining and extra insulation designed to take on the chilliest days in stride. For Maki these vibey kicks are all about “footwear that moves with you and makes your day a little brighter.”
