Whether it’s Chelsea boots, boots or winter lace-ups … We’ll make you fit for the cold season with our top 10. These are the best winter shoes for men!
The best winter shoes # 1: Dr. Martens
Do you remember your first couple, Dr. Martens? For decades the brand has been cult and the classic model (the 1460 Smooth) one of the most popular boots in the world. But the rest of the range is also worth seeing, like one of our current favorite shoes: a classic lace-up shoe in a sneaker look.

The best winter shoes # 2: Arket
Another blockbuster in the shoe cabinet is the Chelsea Boot, which is increasingly replacing regular lace-up shoes, especially in the office – at least in autumn and winter. If you want to wear it with a suit, it should be as sleek and elegant as possible … like this one from Arket. (Are you looking for more Chelsea boots? We show the best styles – and how they are worn – here)
The best winter shoes # 3: Dior
A tasty dose of runway glam should not be missing on your feet this autumn and winter. A few days ago Dior presented a new material: the “Oblique Tapestry”. The three most successful Dior pieces were provided with it exclusively for the autumn / winter collection – the “Saddle Bag”, the “Rider” backpack and of course the “B23” sneaker.
The best winter shoes # 4: Bottega Veneta
Another high fashion highlight this season are the “Puddle Boots” by Bottega Veneta. It has never been so easy for us to fall in love with a rubber boot. The boots are (of course) waterproof, very comfortable and made of a biodegradable polymer. The most beautiful shoe for bad weather – you won’t regret it.
The best winter shoes # 5: COS
There is also a lot going on in the area of lace-ups this autumn and winter. COS actually ends up in our top 10 lists every season – after all, you always have a good knack for updating classic models with a very modern design. Right now at the top of our shopping list is this leather derby with square lace.

The best winter shoes # 6: Emporio Armani
Anyone who has followed the Fashion Weeks in January knows that one of the biggest runway trends of winter is tall boots. Of course, these are not so explicitly universal that you can wear them with every look and for every occasion. For everyone who wants to make a statement now, however, exactly the right thing. One of the most extraordinary examples is currently available from Emporio Armani, for example.
The best winter shoes # 7: Asics
There are really many sporty sneakers, but only a few are really suitable for winter. But what we can really recommend, given the current weather, is the new “Novablast SPS” from Asics. Not only does it look good, it also has a water-repellent surface with light-reflecting elements.
The best winter shoes # 8: Scarosso
Last but not least, three perfect examples of how diverse the most practical shoes for winter can be: lace-up boots. The model by Scarosso is particularly suitable for everyone who likes to spend the cold season in lots of knitwear and classic denim pieces. This shoe perfectly complements such outfits.
The best winter shoes # 9: Timberland
The Timberland model, on the other hand, is a little bolder in design. Nevertheless, the shoe retains the necessary balance so that you can easily combine it in relaxed casual looks despite the material mix and camouflage print.
The best winter shoes # 10: Skechers
Last but not least: black, classic, calm. The lace-up boot from Skechers is an all-purpose weapon for almost every look and gives you all the freedom you need, especially when choosing pants. Whether jeans, chinos or trousers, this shoe is always suitable for everyday use. And with warm and softly bedded feet, winter isn’t that bad anymore.
