Not really. They've got a lot of 'volume', so they're meant to be worn with thick socks. I've found them to more more than sufficient down to -25 Celsius or so with warm socks.

my feet were freezing today in the slush and cold. I am in and out of the car alot walking through snow and slush.....im wondering I could potentially wear a pair of 566 or 584s in Toronto over the winter? I've killed a few nice shoes with winters in Canada.

Any recommendations?

Those would be more than sufficient, Toronto isn't that cold. The boots are waterproof so as long as your feet keep dry, you're all good. There really isn't a winter boot that can do waterproof, warm and stylish all at once (especially if you face salt and slush every day and don't want to invest a lot of money in boots that will be destroyed in a couple years).

I wear the 062 model with thick socks and insoles and I don't have any problems with cold feet. That's just my opinion though, I don't like heavily insulated boots as I prefer the versatility of switching up socks depending on weather. Where I live it can be -15 degrees one day and then +2 degrees the next day.

I wore the Timbs with skinny leather pants today and no problems.

In sunny weather, I wear Galibier Super Rando. Nice casual all around hiking boots.

 

When there's snow and ice, I wear Sole Spike studded Meindl Gastein lambskin-lined winter boots.

 

That's my go-to winter boots footwear.

They work fine, they're a bit chunky but that's just the way it is with winter boots. I wear mine with straight leg pants and tapered denim, I don't think it looks too bad. Everyone around here wears Blundstone boots anyways so I don't exactly stick out.

thanks brad and john. i'll probably pick up one or the other over the holidays.

i've been meaning to get a chunky black boot and a winter boot, so hoping the blundstones or timbs can check both boxes.

I kinda like these boots. I tried them on at local store & found them very comfortable & light-weighted. They are waterproofed & lined with merino wool. I'm just not sure if they are worth $260...

Precisely, they retailed for CAD360(USD260). I'll have to pay $360 if I decided to do so.

Yeah man definitely order UGGs.

and this (that's Celsius, not Fahrenheit):

 

 

I picked up these:

 

 

Not exactly attractive, I know, but mink shearling lining, waterproof, and grippy plus handmade in Montreal, Canada. Paid CAD$150 out the door (MSRP is CAD$375).

 

I guess they have a bit of a 'tactical' aesthetic to them, which is maybe more suitable for SW&D, but it doesn't matter too much when they're submerged in slush for the several blocks I walk every day to and from the office.

Where did you get your Pajar boots at CAD150? Looks like you got a pretty good deal.

post #585 of 614
Frankly even in person the aesthetic leaves much to be desired. As others have said, if you're looking to handle what a Montreal winter will throw at you and look good, you're SOL.

You should be able to find the made-in-China Pajars for ~$150 or so. These were on sale at the Bay for CAD$275 and I also had some store gift cards that I took advantage of. I don't think I'd have paid full retail for them, even if they are locally hand made.
