Hi I have read all the threads on chukkas for the winter I can find on here and have narrowed it down to a few choices (some of my own finding). Currently in Canada where our winters are pretty heavy (decent amount of snow and ice) and according to predictions this winter should be one of the worst... so going to look for boots. Here are my options... obviously some are at different price points but all are in consideration based on combination of price/quality. Are the Alden's really worth the extra money?
