Awesome thread. I'm starting to fall for the Red Wing 213 model, but I'm not so sure about the sole. Also considering Wolverine 1000 Mile and Diemme Roccia Vet. I wore Chelsea boots last winter and I didn't have any problems staying warm, so Sorel or anything like that would be overkill. Just looking for a more rugged pair that will do good when the weather is turning bad.
