I am originally from Miami, Florida but now live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have been trying to figure out what shoes to wear in winter with either slacks and a dress shirt, or a suit (perhaps not the same shoe for those). I went to an AE store and see some have Dainite soles. I haven't a clue how much better those would be than leather soles in winter. Silly question - what do people wear in winter with, say, dress slacks and dress shirts (but not necessarily a suit), or alternatively with a suit?
I see there are "Commando" outsoles, and a bunch of others discussed online, but I'm honestly lost. I'm trying to avoid slipping and falling on snow or ice, as I have existing back and neck injuries, but I'd like to wear decent shoes during winter, as opposed to sneakers or hiking boots. I'm looking for shoes that will go with dress slacks and/or a suit, but that I won't go slipping too easily in during inclement winter weather.
Any help is appreciated.
