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

LL Bean slip on Maine shoes and a few pairs of shoes at the office.I have two pair of heavier downtownish boots; one black and one brown. The black pair is from the closeout store of some italian place on Spring street a little east of 6th Ave and has held up well since 1999. The brown pair has elastic side gusseting (wrong for slush, really) and the leather a little dry -- should have waterproofed it. Â It's Steve Madden & cheap so even if, as I doubt it is permanently salt damaged it is no great financial loss, though I will miss them -- they do put an almost literal 'spring in my step' like no other shoes or boots.
Note to self: water proof boots. And get salt stain remover.
If I were more fogey-ish I might get actual rubbers, but I just can't bring myself to do it, even on rainy days.
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. Â Both are lousy shoes, but come with durable man-made soles. Â At least the BR was purchased for only $20. Â I actually dropped a decent chunk of change on the KC. Â Easily the worse shoe purchase of my life. Â Lousy, fake-looking "shiny black leather" and there's nothing special about the degree of sole comfort.With the recent snow in nyc I was wondering what shoes everyone wears to get around?
