Winter Boots for Walking

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I will be working as a tour guide this December which involves a lot of walking even during rain/snow. What are some stylish boots that can keep my feet comfortable for walking and also functions well in winter? Have been considering the LL Bean Boots which, although don't look the best, still look better than the other winter boots I've been checking out. Any suggestions?

Yes but will you be attending dinners and having dessert? It would also help to know your complexion.

Those look great but at around $300 I wouldn't mind considering other options (Are there stores in NYC that can sell it cheaper?)

 

Also have been considering LL Bean Katahdin which was well-appraised here on SF but the price is now $210 compared to the old $150. Although more expensive, I have also considered RMW Comfort Craftsman, not sure how these fare in snow/rain though. So currently I'm trying to decide between:

 

LL Bean Katahdin

RMW Comfort Craftsman

Redwing GT

 

One more thing. If I do buy any of these boots, can they effectively replace my Clarks Beeswax DB for every occasion? Or are the beeswax still the ultimate casual shoe?

They truly are the pinnacle of footwear.

Honestly, for boots most of your good options are going to be around $300+ at retail, so your best bet would be browsing B+S or saving up. I live in Minnesota, and my winter boots are my Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots, which I vibramed with a sole with a bit more grip.

I'm hoping the 3 boots I was considering above would have these traits right?

Ok so I'm going to spend a bit more and think of this as an investment which I can wear a lot. I like the RMW Craftsman but I'm worried they might look too dressy and maybe won't hold as well on snow/rain. The Katahdin are the cheapest option and appear to be the best value so I might check that out as well. The Redwing GTs look great as well!

If I were to buy only one boot for walking long distances in Winter and also need to be presentable, which one should I buy?

You keep repeating the same stuff only slightly different most people will probably ignore this thread now.

Well since you say you'll be living in them, I suggest you go beyond the traditional "work boot" brands, and have a look at more technical, lightweight models that you can find online. Patagonia has a pair that would be PERFECT for you , and they are nice looking as well. They could literally go from a snowy mountain pass to a restaurant or shopping with no problem. They are supposed to be waterproof and made for hiking.

Thanks for the advice, I do need to eat at a restaurant/shopping every day so unsure if the 'work boots' will fit these occasions (even though they will be perfect for walking in winter).

 

The Patagonia linked looks 'functionable' but the look just isn't my cup of tea..
