    1 and 3 will not be ideal in snow conditions due to the sole. 2 would be best.

    When it's snowing outside, yeah. Snow, salt, freezing temperatures make for slippery streets. Thick socks plus good boots are pretty essential

    I must be too long in the NW, because Sorels are no longer looking hideous to me. Also, for anyone with cash to spare and doesn't give a damn about sturdiness, the shearling Moncler boots are amazing beyond words. The leather is a bit thin (same problem I have with RO shearling) and too pliable imo, but the shearling is ridiculously soft.

    I like the Galibier Super Rando or Super Touring as its called in France. Unfortunately, Paraboot does not ship to the States. And its not available as far as I can tell, on the French Internet.

    Its a low profile boot that can be used for urban walking and for low intensity hikes in the country.

    The lambskin lining in my Meindl Gastein is amazingly plush. And the soles give a good grip on snow and ice. Now that is a winter boot!

    I'm thinking about getting the Allen Edmonds Bayfield

    lug sole + chromexcel leather. should be fine for standard walking around winter boots. not shoveling/digging your car out, but fine for day to day winter wear

    I love how if you go to SZ, some people just walk around in their guidi all year, just wear thicker socks

    Places that sell paraboot will import Galibier for you. You can get from Pelle Line (near me) for example. They order on Thursdays and it takes about 2 weeks to get the boots from France. http://www.pelleline.com/

    It'll be warm enough, but the sole on Docs is terrible on ice.
