    With the recent snow in nyc I was wondering what shoes everyone wears to get around?

    I have used Blundstones for the past few years. I wanted to get something a bit dressier since I go from meetings to meetings and I really don't think the Blundstones are going to work

    Neos overshoes-- the knee-high variety. Revel in wearing real shoes and comfy socks while it's snowing outside.

    Right now, my first, last and only pair of kenneth coles serve as my main black "slush" shoe, and a banana republic chukka boot serves the same the function in brown.  Both are lousy shoes, but come with durable man-made soles.  At least the BR was purchased for only $20.  I actually dropped a decent chunk of change on the KC.  Easily the worse shoe purchase of my life.  Lousy, fake-looking "shiny black leather" and there's nothing special about the degree of sole comfort.

    8 eye Doc Martens. Grr.

    NB: Business casual office. If it's inclement enough to break out the Docs on a weekday, it's also worth moleskin or heavy corduroy trousers and a wool sweater. The bulk of the clothes draws attention away from the boots.

    - Black Ludwig Reiter Derby shoes with crepe sole
    - Red Wing 875 boots
    - C&J Chestnut Chelsea boots

    I'm glad that I work in a business casual enviroment, because Winter means 4-5 months of snow, ice, slush and wet salty roads here.

    "Fogey-ish" I am. In the city I wear Tingley rubbers. Storm style or the
    moccasin style which looks like a Venetian high vamp loafer.Keep them shiny with Amor All tire preserver. Weekends out of town and it's LL Bean
    Ducks and I do believe in some corner of the garage is a pair of buckle
    artics.
