Hey guys!

 

Can you guys please recommend me some winter boots for Boston?

 

I'm an exchange student from Australia heading to Boston from January - June, and Sydney's winter is no where as cold (don't even snow) as Boston so I have no clue what kind of boots I'll need. Just looking for something that doesn't look ridiculous (like LL Bean - sorry supporters) and enable me to walk around comfortably as I'll be visiting places.

 

Any other tips to prepare me would be welcomed!

 

Thanks in advance!


It depends on the day. Last winter, we got a little over 2' of snow in one storm. I would suggest having a cheap beater pair to get you through the snowy days, and then have one or more nice pairs for when the sidewalks have been cleared of snow. Chippewa's can be had for quite cheap, and they don't look bad.

 

More important objectives for you will be to find some warm socks, a warm winter hat, the thickest gloves you can find, and a scarf. It can get as low as -10 degrees Celsius (or more) in January and February, so you need to place dressing warm above all else.

I'm looking for something in a dark brown nubuck/suede. Closest I've found are probably the J Crew / Red Wing Iron Rangers but don't really like the reddish tinted sole.

FYI, Amazon has Iron Rangers for a little cheaper and in different colors: http://www.amazon.com/Red-Wing-Iron-Ranger-Harness/dp/B001IOGMTA/

What are the nicest vibrammed boots out right now?  Besides visvims?  Looking for a second pair with a vibram sole for a softer/spongier ride, I have bad joints

I've talked to them quite extensively recently. I think most people should give them another chance

post #5217 of 5231
The last time people gave them a second chance it all went to shit (again). A lot of chargebacks etc. YMMV.

Really looking for a pair of roughout/nubuck creeper boots.  Nothing too dramatic, more like these (which of course, as always, are long sold out):

 

.

 

 

 

 

There's Rick combat boots but I'd prefer something with a slightly less RO aesthetic...if that makes sense.  Also being cheaper than Rick is always a plus, lol.

Any suggestions?
