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 brown Bass waterproof boots for foul weather.
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
LL Bean Hunting Boots.
Neos overshoes-- the knee-high variety. Revel in wearing real shoes and comfy socks while it's snowing outside.
Ankle-high waterproof Timberland chelsea boots (black). Great for rain and snow.
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.
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
