Crockostyle, is the black one 3-season as well in your opinion?
Peter1, in 20 degree weather with snow or rain outside, the wax wouldn't cut it? I'm assuming it'd be better in warmer weather though, right?
I've worn mine all winter here in NYC; when it's been that cold I wear silk liner socks under ragg wool socks, and I've been fine. The canvas is as waterproof as the leather. I can attest to that, having gone sledding about 10 times with my kids already.
BUT, If I was going to be standing around in 20 deg weather for a long time I'd buy a pair of Sorels...
I personally like the canvas, as I've said, but I don't LOVE them, mostly because the material doesn't offer any support.
