Im moving to DC in August and I want a boot I can use when it starts to rain and possibly snow there. My first instinct was to just get an LL Bean bot http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/35487...tn&cat4=505557 http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/33172...tn&cat4=505558 But then I thought Quoddy might make something. http://quoddystore.com/catalog/produ...products_id=41 http://quoddystore.com/catalog/produ...products_id=44 Im not really clear on why those two shoes cost anything different, but would those work for DC weather? I realize DC isn't ridiculously rainy but I want my feet to remain dry if it does start to rain. Im not a big fan of the big hunk of rubber on the grizzly boots but the new vibram soles which will hopefully come out soon look pretty reasonable.
