(2) Soldaini cord leather boots are doing ok but had some trouble with salt
(3) hanwag gruntens are killing it
Anyone still looking for stylish winter boots?
I've had this exactly same problem and just discovered the forum so I wanted to share what I found. I found these waterproof chelseas from Cole Haan. I think they would hold up to a harsh Montreal winter if you do obvious things like avoid jumping into puddles of slush and walk only on shovelled sidewalks, head to work, etc.
They come in Black or Brown and have found them for $250 CAD with tax and shipping included.
What do you guys think?
