Looking for the best women’s winter boots to take on the infamously cold Canadian winters? The choice is not easy. The warmest winter boots for women are not necessarily the biggest or thickest. There are many things to consider, such as the look, the purpose (for walking, everyday life, snowshoeing, etc.), the sole, and more.

This year’s winter is gearing up to look a little different than we are used to. We’ll probably be spending more time at home, plowing snow, playing outside with people or finally trying out winter sports, now that we have a little more time. We reviewed the best women’s winter boots for the winter of 2021, and determined that the UGG Adirondack III boot was a great choice.
