Boasting high-performance and comfort for all-day wear, the UGG Cecile is our Top Pick for Style. This 7-inch low profile duck boot compliments many outfits and is a favorite among our testers. Cast in a waterproof leather upper and coupled with a warm wool liner, it performed well in moderately cold temperatures and kept feet dry on the street. The outsole is infused with a cork material and over-layed in a rubber composite that kept our feet on the ground over surfaces of soft and hard-packed snow.
That said, it is not a top performer in comparison to other winter boots on the market. While traction is decent in town, the lug design is not very technical and not suitable for super steep or slippery terrain. Cute contenders like the Keen Elsa did better in our traction tests and was also well-loved by our testers. Overall, this boot is excellent for casual wear through the Fall, Winter, and Spring.
