The only thing that matters more than your winter coat game in New York's colder months is your choice of boots. This season, we've covered the bases by tracking down stylish options that will make a statement as we transition into lower temps, including footwear that's both good-looking and functional for snowy days — and then mapping out where to find all of them.

Keep scrolling to check out 22 places in New York City to find your next pair of winter boots. This time around, we've nixed the department stores in favor of a mix of boutiques that really offer something for everyone, from grungy-cool biker boots that can handle salt stains to ‘70s boho-glam styles to go perfectly with this season's culottes trend, and everything in between.

Bonus: Most of these have price points that won't cause you to put your credit card on ice. Check out our north-to-south rundown below.
