I'm looking to get a dress boot for the winter. I prefer the Dalton to the 5th street but I'm wondering if the Dalton (bottom photo) would look good with a suit. Also, if anyone has any experience with either boot, or just has an opinion of which one to get, I'd appreciate your feedback. I'm a lawyer, but my firm isn't very stuff, to give you some context. Also, I live in New York, so I'll do a bit of walking in them and would wear overshoes on really bad days.
I own them. I agree with everyone else that it is best with jeans, but acceptable business casual on shitty days. I've worn them in some bad rain storms and been very happy with the leather and the sole.

[quote=The Silverfox;3661067]If the problem is purely the practical one of dealing with the snow and cold, rather than a desire to wear boots for their own sake, have you considered simply wearing regular leather soled shoes with a rubber overshoe or overboot? Probably my best option, thanks!
