Choice depends on two things: Fit, and Need for warmth.

Fit: Everyone's foot shape is different. Try on several brands and models. It's not something you can really do well online, unless it's a repeat purchase.

Need for warmth: Again, everyone is different. For example, my feet (and hands) get cold easily (due to Raynaud's). If I went on a winter hike in the Salomon Quest, my next stop would be the ER for amputations. So I wear the Salomon Toundra (kind of like a pac boot, big and soft and heavily insulated). With room for thick wool socks and chemical heaters. But again, your needs may vary; no one else can guess how much insulation you need.
