Not everyone needs a pair of snow boots that are rated for such extreme temperatures, but most people would like a pair of snow boots that look good. If that sounds like your situation, then you may want to have a look at these sporty boots from The North Face. They look a bit like hiking boots, but they have still loads of features that will help to protect you from the elements, including waterproof uppers, outsoles with grip optimization features, and 200g Heatseeker insulation to keep your feet warm.

Reasonably-priced at $100, the 'Chilkat II' is temperature rated to -25 degree F.

If you know any girl or woman under the age of 50 or so, then you're already familiar with the term "UGG boots," but you'd be missing out if you thought the boots (or the brand name UGG Australia) were just for those of the female persuasion -- or that they all looked the same.

The fact is, even before they were popular in the States, and long before they became one of the most ubiquitous fashion items of the 21st century, sheepskin boots were worn by men and women; athletes; and workers who had to face cold conditions and needed to keep their feet warm.

UGG Australia is only one of the brands that manufactures sheepskin boots, but they're obviously one of the most well-known -- and the "Butte" snow boots shown here are incredibly popular

Don't believe me? Just check out the glowing customer reviews at Zappos.com for more evidence.

Available in a nice selection of colors, these boots are one of the pricier styles on the list, ringing up at $250.
