Casual shoes for rain/light snow?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im looking for some shoes (boots?) that are suitable for rain/snow (Im from vancouver Canada) for fall/winter... Does anybody know any styles that i could look for? Boots? shoes? Im not looking for brands and models, but just some styles that I could keep an eye out for... I found a pair of Diesel boots (no idea what the name was) for fairly cheap, but they're not new models, so i cant find any info online on them... By casual i mean sweater and jeans with a leather jacket or a down-filled "puffy" jacket... Thanks in advance

Funny you should post this, as I just purchased a pair of such boots.   They are the Snowdon model from Crockett & Jones.  They are veldt sewn, which means that the welt is sewn so as to make the welt completely waterproof.  Most welted boots will leak at the welt, and the veldtshoen construction is really the only choice if you want a pair of quality, traditionally styled waterproof boots that you can actually stomp through puddles in. Here is a picture of them:   http://www.bsaltd.com/bsa_zcrock.html The alternative is a more casual boot, such as the many various styles of hiking boot which are available.  Many of these are also waterproof.  A different look than the Crockett & Jones' however. Check out Cabelas or Orvis for a large selection of these more casual sporting oriented boots.   Kai
