23 Most Comfortable Boots for All-Day Walking in 2022: UGG, Merrell, Eddie Bauer



The fall season kicked off with a splash and with that comes the need for a refresh of comfortable boots that you can wear daily. Here’s the thing: as stylish and as chic as a pair of over-the-knee or ankle booties look, it can be hard to find a pair that doesn’t leave your feet aching. If you don’t want to compromise on style, we found the most comfortable boots to add to your fall and winter wardrobe. After all, boots are a top-tier choice for a fashion-forward look, and finding the right style can ensure your toes are kept warm, safe, and dry despite any snow or rain this cold-weather season.

What to look for in a comfortable boot

You might be wondering, what exactly makes the perfect winter boot? While the answer is subjective, there are a few non-negotiable winter-friendly attributes that every pair of boots should have. First off, you always want to make sure that they feel flexible enough to move around in and don’t have a hard shell that feels crushing. Then, there’s taking note of the size of the heel—of course, if you feel more comfortable walking on platforms opt for those instead. You should also make sure you consider the width, the arch, and the toe box. If you have flat feet try adding an insole to support your arch. Overall, the boots you choose should feel snug but not tight.
