When it comes to side zip boots, men might shy away from their sleek and smooth style. However, anyone with their finger on the pulse of the runways knows that city boots are a major fashion staple for men this season. Knock offs are everywhere and the styles are both comfortable and chill.

For an overview of some of the best-looking zippered men's boots on sale this year, read on.

Kenneth Cole New York City Boot ($200+)

Designed by Kenneth Cole, this sleek city boot is all about its cool, grey leather. Break away from boring black with this unique boot that's both smooth and sophisticated.

There are few details, no embellishments and a general style that's cool, calm and collected. The best part about these well made city boots? The non-slip heel means they're great for banging around town on a wet or snowy day.

Hugo Boss Ankle Boots ($175+)

These boots are designed to function and look good - making them a pretty nice pair of side zip boots. Most men will appreciate the rugged appeal of these heavy-duty boots, but also enjoy the waterproof functionality that lets you run though anything without worry.

These city boots are really made for the urban warrior - they can handle a beating during any winter storm, making them a pretty ideal choice for cold and snowy winters or stormy and wet springs.

Zippered Boots by Timberland ($139)

With their patented Smart Comfort System, these zippered men's boots by Timberland are made for walking. Fortunately, they're also made for style. This is a waterproof boot (they guarantee it) designed to take you from an afternoon hiking in the mountains right to the chalet restaurant. The design is simple, rustic and casual, but cool enough for a night out.

Gucci City Boots ($500+)

These boots are the one of the best for urban indulgence. The ankle boot style and soft, butter-colored leather blend very well together for an overall luxurious shoe. The one drawback? At almost $600 a pair, you may to be too scared to wear these beauties outside the house. If so, invest in a pair of galoshes.

For side zip boots, men should look for boots that not only look good, but also fit well right off the bat. Unlike leather shoes, boots are less likely to stretch out, particularly around the ankles - which means finding the right perfect is crucial.
