Perfectly rugged, dependable boots to invest in now, then wear all winter.

The right pair of winter boots can go a long way — a really long way — in determining the success of your style ensemble (and your mobility, for that matter) when it comes to getting around during these chilly, snowy times. And with that being said, there’s no better pair of men’s boots to invest in at the moment than the rugged Mark Albert Uptown Boots, some of the best leather boots to slip your feet into for December (and beyond, naturally).

And if you’re already acquainted with Mark Albert boots? Well, best to give a new pair a shot for a new season, ehh? The thing with these rugged leather boots is that they’re aged to perfection already, so they’ll look like you’ve had them for years (thanks to the premium kudu leather), yet you can still break them in all on your own. And given that you’re going to find yourself needing boots for all occasions this season, you’ll have plenty of chances to break ’em in nicely.

A tough Vibram outsole helps separate these boots from the pack.

These boots aren’t quite a pair of L.L. Bean boots made to brave the snow, but for days and evenings when you’re not trudging through a blizzard, these Mark Albert boots should do more than just fine. The relatively sleek profile is offset by a durable Vibram outsole for extra grip on slushy streets, while the rich kudu leather pairs quite nicely with casual style picks like slim faded denim and your favorite henley. All of this is to say, these boots assuredly combine form and function quite handsomely, without a doubt. And when you’re hunting down a pair of the best boots for winter, that’s exactly what you need, is it not?
