    Anything with rubber above the sole is disgusting, get that shit outta here
    cant argue back
    sorry but those do not fill the "not ugly" requirement
    not the only ones

    the weekend FT "how to spend it" had an article about dress winter boots. some very nice boots there, including the first pair of berlutti I have seen that I would consider buying - some zip side whole cut medallians with sheepskin lining.

    Here is a link to it.

    the KVAs look good as a rugged winter boot.

    what do people think of trickers monkey boots? i was never one for monkey boots but these are pretty cool i think, now have a goodyear sole. the shape is really nice, more like a rugged leather chuck taylor

    yeah suede boots. not sure where to buy laces tho, they came with the boot!!

    they are these: http://www.ssense.com/men/product/kr...de_boots/27494

    lampo zips on sides. the "welt" throws me off tho.


    Im not sure about suede as a winter boot but good luck

    yeah. those kvas are okay but are you buying them because you like something intrinsic about the boot or because they r kva? mostly look quite normal to me, not great not bad. dont know what your issue is with the toebox is though, it looks appropriately rounded for the thickness of the sole

    i bought them for the lug sole mostly.also imagined them going well with jeans over the boot. when they arrived i thought to myself, "these are heavy duty". lampo zips proves that. they are quite heavy as well. the fact that they are a bit boring peeves me. wish there was a little more detail. it is a classic silhouette tho. toe box doesnt look too bad upon further review lol. side pics look better than birds eye pic.

    i mean timberlands have a lug sole lol. i mean i feel like any old black boot with a lug sole would work as well and look as good as that pair, particularly since suede does seem a bit impractical for winter boots..

    i would take all black docs over most of the boots in this thread

    What Im using until I get some insulated / lined boots. Wear it both tucked/untucked. Tucked it to show the whole boot.
    Lack of zipper kills these for me
