    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.

    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.  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.
