But if you're careful about what you step on and keep another pair of legit beaters like bean boots, etc, you can get away with pretty much anything with a decent sole. I think I used AnnD highs for an entire winter as go to footwear and managed to avoid falling or getting soaked.

Salt stains rub off pretty easily - not really a bother unless you are really fussy about stuff like that.

 

If you are looking for real foul weather boots, just get something with a Goretex insert.  If you are really looking to be a canuck, get a pair of Sorels. http://www.sorel.com/mens-caribou-wool-boot-NM1873.html?dwvar_NM1873_variationColor=282&cgid=men-boots#start=6 which will take you comfortably through a snow and slush and sleet filled winter on James Bay.

Thoughts?  One vs the other?

 

vs

I like the Sanders. There was a photo in the Camoshita lookbook that I think were Sanders that made me want to get a pair.

nothing makes me more loathe to buy new clothes than an entire morning spent selling crap on yahoo auctions

Please tell me you didn't sell the blue Petrosoleum

post #12158 of 13969
They've been about a size big on me, been wearing them with insoles and thick socks. Same with my L-0 boots. Complete shame, but I think I need to flip and re-order both pairs frown.gif

I wonder if people will start name dropping Calvin Kleins main collection once Raf's collection is released.

Sanders are much better made, but there's something special about the Wallabee look.

I ended up not listing the Petrosolaum. Ahh, just wish they were like a half size smaller. Such a flipping hassle listing everything up with Yahoo's shitty system, but I do enjoy the auction format - I set everything to begin with 1 yen and take my chances. For me, it's entertaining both as a buyer and a seller to participate in auctions rather than using Buy it Now or something else. I rarely see eBay auctions like that anymore..

Here's the first half of the stuff, free shipping if anyone wins!!

Have you tried an insole?
post #12163 of 13969
I still rate the standard 6" wheats as a good winter boot. They are pretty durable even if you take zero care of them and cheap enough that you don't need to care about them/can buy a new pair whenever.

@nicelynice Don't you use superfeet green? I thought those took up at least a half size in shoes

@Synthese

ETA: at a beach cafe in New Zealand and there's a (non Chinese) dude wearing full Rick. MA1, skirt, jeans, runners. Pretty sure I saw some chrome hearts jewelry too.

 

Sure that you didn't see The Arm?
