The coolest snow boots in the UK for women who love to be trendy but still warm

Whether you're planning a skiing trip, or braving the British winter, you can expect to face some snow this year. Indeed, weather reports even forecast a cold, white blanket in the UK for October, so it's definitely not too early to start thinking about how to keep your tootsies warm, while remaining stylish and cool this season.

Quality and technology meet fashion on the high streetClarks might not be the first place you would think to go if you're concerned about staying on trend. However, over the past few years, Clarks has worked hard to modernise its "plain school shoe" image, and this season it's worth taking a look at its women's snow boots, especially the range featuring GORE-TEX® technology for waterproofing and breathability. With a great spectrum of colours and styles, all around the £100-pound mark, the range includes the very stylish Nemo ThrillGTX available in black or white suede, lined for extra warmth, and featuring trendy laces from top to bottom. The Walk to Hi GTX boot comes in four appealing colours - plum, denim blue, khaki and black - and features Clarks' WaveWalk sole which enhances the natural movement of your foot - an extra bonus for the fitness-conscious. There's a Clarks store in almost every high street, or you can shop on line at clarks.co.uk. Standard five-day home delivery is available free of charge for adult shoes.

Always a quality option, Timberland has a very funky range of women's snow boots this season. Its Crystal Mountain Waterproof Tall Lace boot is available in pink and brown or in black and silver, and features the company's exclusive anti-fatigue technology for maximum comfort. For the eco-conscious, the boot contains a 30% recycled fleece lining made from recycled plastic bottles. A bonus for you, and for the environment! Check out the whole range on the high street (timberland.com has a UK store locator) or shop on line at timberlandonline.co.uk.

Other outlets selling snow boots in the UK for women include Barratts, with the Skechers range, which this season has some fashionable designs at reasonable prices; or try Debenhams or John Lewis for ample options.

And don't forget that most online retailers provide free delivery, so if you want to take your time, do your research and shop from the comfort of your own home, some good sites include: hi-tech.com, fitnessfootwear.com and, for more top-of-the-range, stylish but slightly more pricey options, sorel.com, with really funky designs including the gorgeous Women's Wild Wooly Wedge™, to bring out the yeti in you!
