if i buy a pair of leather boots is it ok to wear them in the snow? won't they get wet and ruin the leather? i thought you weren't suppose to let water touch leather?

Make sure you got a command sole. I wore my leather soled boots in the snow last winter. I was ice skating.

Commando soles. Like the Vibram military style soles.

Water + leather is OK. Water + Salt + Leather destroys boots.
