15 Edgy Lug Sole Boots to Wear All Winter

Cold weather footwear that's extra–in a good way.

Our favorite cold weather clothes are chanting a new-old mantra: Bigger really is better. Exaggerated proportions are a head-to-toe vibe, from the giant totes we're carrying to the billowing jackets we're wearing, all the way down to the best lug sole boots of the season.

It's not hard to get behind a boot with an exaggerated rubber sole this winter. Pull on a pair and your cold-weather outfits reach new heights, thanks to their outsize proportions. Then there's the extra dash of practicality. Most lug sole boots are water resistant or completely weather proof, so editing your outfit for the forecast is a non-issue.
