Lifestyle Outdoor: 5 Chelsea Boots for Winter Weather Muck

Shovel your driveway, walk around the ski resort, or hit the town this winter. These Chelsea boots have you covered.

Easy to slip on and off, Chelsea boots are both functional and fashionable. With laceless design and durable uppers, these boots are built to handle both winter chores and après, in whatever order you please.

During winter, the Chelsea boot design has one advantage over traditional lace-up boot design: weatherproofing. Without laces, Chelsea boots only permit snow and slush to enter from above the ankle.

And dry feet are happy feet.
