Thanks, the snow isn't that high, I live in Toronto. I'm breaking in a pair of slim straight raw denim right now, does that sound like that would work?
Yeah, totally. If the jeans have a hem > 7", you should probably be able to fit the leg opening over the top of the boot. That's the only thing I would take into consideration.
LL Bean has a good return policy, so you can always send them back if you don't like them.
