Winter Boots

post #1 of 87
Thread Starter 
I'm a college student who goes to a fairly large public and have to walk 20+ minutes to class every day. I don't own an actual pair of boots (I only have heavy duty ones for when I'm outside for 3+ hours, and they are pretty ugly looking). Last winter I wore the crap out of my couple pairs of shoes due to snow, ice, slush, etc. They are all pretty much ruined.

I am in dire need of a good pair of boots to walk to and from class in. I'm looking to spend no more than $150. I would like something that is somewhat fashionable, but is also comfortable for me to walk in and good traction so I won't slip and fall!

Any ideas? Thanks for the help!

LL Bean Katahdin Iron Works boots. These are made by Chippewa and they are super high quality for $150 in my oppinion. I wore mine all last winter and they were excellent and stylish. Get 'em here: http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/sto...rom=SR&feat=sr

The Katahdin is an awesome boot, probably best value you will find. They raised the price to $160.

What makes it such a great boot?

I think it looks great myself but the quality is really high, super soft but thick leather and overall just a well shaped and constructed boot that feels like it will last a long time.

Aside from my kodiak boots for serious weather when looking good goes out the window, my winter boots will be Nice Collective Combat Boot Alden Vintage Indy Boot Indys are always available. I think NiCo is coming out with more boots this year as well. Anyway both of those are solid options. They will run you more than $150, but should you decide to up your budget, worthy of consideration.

Same but including a silver-painted version. It's ridiculous.

Every winter I ruin a pair of shoes due to salt stains...Do you just wipe your boots down after every wear or what?

Not a lot of salt issues here on the west coast, but I don't see why you wouldn't if it's fucking up your shoes.
