No it doesn't. But in my experience having lived in Chicago and Upstate New York, in very cold weather people get away with wearing anything very warm.

Unable to transfer photos of shoes I have for nine and fifteen years respectively. 1803 original Campo Chukka boot purchased about 1999 2 pairs Ludwig Reiter three eyelet derby in suede and water buffalo leather purchased 2005 in the Amerikaner Last, the only last that fit.
