An extremely comfortable and cozy winter boot, the UGG Adirondack II stands out for its unique features and sheepskin liner. This boot offers stellar all-around performance: it's cute enough to wear out to happy hour, but lightweight and comfortable enough to wear on light winter hikes. Our favorite thing about this boot is its plush shearling insulation. This contender is also designed with a cuffable suede shaft: roll it down to expose a fluffy sheepskin cuff or roll it up for extra protection against the elements. We liked the built-in versatility that this feature offered, as well as the unique style that it adds.
Although some women loved the look of these boots and would definitely wear them with casual outfits, others thought they were decidedly less stylish. If you like the look of these full-grain leather boots and are looking for high-quality footwear that will perform outdoors, then the Adirondack II may be just what you're looking for. At $225, it is a bit of an investment — in fact, it is significantly more than most of its competitors — but we predict that it will meet your winter boot needs for years to come. And if your only hang-up is the mid-height shaft, UGG also sells a Tall version intended for temps as low as -20 °C.
