      Rubber Totes overshoes to go over my work shoes and North Face Gore-Tex jobbers for when things get nasty.

      thinking about those and then finding a pair of chukkas somewhere for <$100 for when it's not terrible out.

      They're really nice .

      Eddie Bauer winter Pac boots. Got a pair last year form Ebay for about 30 bucks and they are comparable with Sorel's that cost a lot more. For how often you're going to wear them, used is okay.
      I had my eye on a pair of Born boots with fleece lining, but dont' think they are made anymore. I agree with the above poster the Timberland Earthkeeper boot look really nice. Anything from Keen for me as well. I'd like some NoPos, or the Glarus. From Lowa a pair of Trekkers or Borneos would do me nicely.

      or
      If you live in an area that gets a lot of snowfall, stay away from those crepe soles.


      These are what I'll be wearing most of the winter:



      I'm gonna probably grab another pair in Goretex, too.

      Got the same pair for going on 3 years now. Still looking good and are now really nicely broken-in.

      Im looking at these UGGS. They look fairly comfortable and would look good with reg pants half tucked in or out/ over the top..

      if those are legit Vibram soles, they'll be super comfortable.

      I don't have to deal with "weather" here. I wear these almost all year round. I have a couple of pair and they are light and fairly comfortable.

      These are my next choice so far but something a little shorter would be good:



      I really like distressed looking stuff, I'm not a fan of the bright standard LL Bean boots.
      Thanks

      I was never a shoe guy until I got my first pair of genuine leather boots. Now threads like this have me debating spending a good chunk of my next paycheck on ****ing shoes. What's wrong with me

      On topic, I'd rock these.
