I would highly recommend the Crockett & Jones Snowdon boot. Â It is constructed using the "veldtshoen" method, which means that the welt is completly waterproof. I use these in wet and snowy situations, and have no complaints. Â They look rather dressy for country boots and take a good shine. Â http://www.bsaltd.com/bsa_zcrock.html
This are very nice boots, contrary to what marc believes. They are a good country boot that can be worn in the city, and casually. In truly inclement conditions, wearing leather soled shoes is pretty much asking for a sprained ankle, broken leg, or broken hip, depending on how much you've offended heaven. If you are wearing those atrocities in the b8man's sig in Kingston, Ontario, in the dead of winter, I wouldn't be surprised if you broke all four limbs and a few ribs on the way down.
