Like most objects, when applied to ice, they slip.

Yeah, they're pretty slick on ice and on smooth wet surfaces (painted concrete, for example). That said, they are supremely comfortable on hard surfaces.

I wore Red Wing Work Chukkas for 6 years straight working in restaurants and bars, and after the original sole (very Christy-like) wore down I had them resoled with Christys twice. Those soles, in concert with some SuperFeet low-pro black insoles, were extremely comfortable, even during 11-13 hour shifts. The shoes finally rotted out after years of water and citrus exposure, and now I'm wearing Chippewa's with the Vibram GumLite sole and the SuperFeet insoles, and they are likewise comfortable and seem to be a little better in wet conditions. They also have more pronounced tread than the Christys.

Thanks for the feedback!

 

I have a pair of Thorogood moc toe boots i'm hoping to wear to Japan in January to use as a stop-gap measure for walking around snowy areas. My preference is to avoid buying dedicated snowboots since I would never have any other use for them.
