Winter boots that aren't ugly - Page 2

post #16 of 600
Does anyone know if storm welted shoes actually work? If so why not get a nice pair of english country boots with a storm welt

Sorels are also heavily insulated, so there is that to consider...

Bean boots and Sorels both get my vote. Stralas are nice for fall + spring, but they had issues with Toronto winters, so I'm thinking they'll die in Montreal.

There's also the cheap Red Wing lines that are still aimed at people that, you know, work in them, like the 4473 and 953. 4473s are basically well-made combat boots, with some decent insulation, and you should be able to find them for ~160.

Military Surplus for both boots and socks. You can even get the white ones for riding your Tauntaun.

For real weather I either use my Indys which are bomber or my NiCo combats which are bomber-er. Like people don't know what indys look like by now. Realistically, though, I think I'd wear any boot in snow. I mean they're boots, getting beat up is what they're meant for in my estimation. If I get Augusta / CCP / Guidi I'm wearing the fuck out of them in the snow. Especially if they're cordovan.

Are you looking for something insulated for warmth, or are you looking for something that's just got ankle support, water resistant over the ankle and good traction?

Not a traditional winter boot, but slather with sno-seal, wear thick socks and you have a decent-looking boot with a good lug sole for traction in snow. Goodyear welted so it should last for years and take a beating. Runs about $120-$150.

And the silly American flag is removable.

They're leather soled anyway, put a $25 lug sole on and it's a non-issue

I think "Ugly" would change a lot depending on what you are planning to wear them with. Something like the Bean Boot or the Sorel 1964 would probably work great for the J. Crew or workwear crowd, but if you are more the SuFu or High Fashion type, it may be a bit more difficult to find something that is equally functional and affordable.
