Waterlogged feet. Frostbitten ankles. Pruny toes. Sometimes walking in a winter wonderland isn't all cracked up to be. Don't reach for your skis just yet, however.

Above, J-41's cruelty-free Mountaineer boot ($77), which features a quilted nylon shaft. soft faux-fur trim, and a non-marking outsole made of partially recycled rubber.
