Winter Boots 2011 / 2012 - Page 7
Styleforum Top Picks
Parachoc Super Rando from Richard Pontvert's famed Paraboot company. It comes with the famous red laces. Available from France through Internet shop e-Killibre Outillage. It can be dispatched to USA within two weeks via the French La Poste's Collissimo tracking service.
I swear those are dead ringers for the Parachoc Super Touring boots that I have! Are the Norwegian stitches on those sealed with a water-proof resin? Those better not be Galibier Khumbru soles! The red lacing is uncanny, to say the least!
The Brooks Brothers mentioned above
I just picked up a pair of these. Not diemme quality by any stretch of imagination, but not bad especially as I picked them up new for under £30 (Dr Marten Holt - also available in Black)...
Another cheap option if you're happy with beater quality is Wolverine either Tyrol or Branson
Are the RW 8146 enough for a Chicago winter? I have the Wolverine Addisons and RW GTs, but I don't expect to have any traction with either. I just received a pair of Danner Mountain Lights in the mail, but I'm not sure how i feel about the look of them. I'm looking for traction and some degree of water resistance.
as multiple people has said multiple times itt:
those boots (and many others) will be perfectly fine for day to day wear
for shoveling and walking around in serious storms, you probably need real winter boots
people overestimate what they need on a daily basis and underestimate what they need in real winter conditions. I've never seen a boot ideal for both
This is the strangest thing to come from the ass-backwards minds at PETA.
God help us
Alden/Tricker's/Alfred Sargent on a commando sole? Just make sure to wipe them down when they get all salty
