I would suggest the Blaxland. It is identical to the Craftsman but has a rubber sole ("non-slip composition") instead. I got my pair last September and it worked very well in all kind of winter weather. On very cold days one should wear thick socks though, since the sole is not thicker than a leather sole, but that means the pair is elegant and can be worn all year round e.g. on rainy summer days too Thanks much for the rec! This is what I ws thinking with the comfort craftsman. Now that I think about it, isn't the Blaxland the same thing as the comfort craftsman? If not, how do they differ? Thanks again for the info, appreciate the help. Is that the craftsman in chestnut on the left? Yes, but they aren't quite that 'dark' in person. Still quite nice, just a little different brown.
