    Try John Varvatos, these boots are good. Only one problem with wooden sole is it get slippery in snow.

    that's not very fucking useful in a winter boots topic then is it?

    I went to the Ugh store today and tried those boots on. Pretty comfy but god is that store scary.

    i hate these popular culture references that i don't understand or care to understand
    In all reality the store was tiny but so packed I could barely move. Right after i got there the store started doing 1 in 1 out and had a line outside. It was insane. This was a 3pm on a Tuesday. No sale or release or anything. It must suck to work there. Although there were a ton of breezys in there to chat with while waiting to get the boots to try on. But the fact I was actually in there probably took a few points out of my favor.

    I'm looking for a boot that's water resistant but I don't need some sort of iron clad chunky workboot, just something with a little more grip then chucks and not completely pourus. And ideally something a little sleek....

    Which ones (top 3?) would you pick?

    Pretty good, still deciding though. They are pretty bulky and I really wasn't wearing an appropriate outfit for them to look good with. I can get them for 140$ total new, so I might do it. Definitely warm!

    Yes. But I do like their design, very rock and roll. I bring my boots to a shoe maker and let him add a rubber sole. Like what women do to their Louboutins.

    Definitely not the DBs. Partly because that's a crappy price, but also because they're not real water resistant and that sole really isn't good in Toronto winter weather. The Tretorns aren't bad, I've got a pair of the high tops, but they're pretty much rubber boots and look like it.

    If you need something cheap and weather resistant, I've had good luck with some of the standard LL Bean footwear. Or check out Get Outside instead of Little Burgundy.

    a few options for under 2 hundred:

    instead of the red wing 2268, the chippewa 27899

    or a justin roper with a nitrile sole (maybe too cowboy, but when worn will just look like a normal boot)

    [​IMG]

    or world war ii impressions boondockers after dubbing (search superfuture if you want some pics, i'm too lazy).

    but all practical and all under $200 and well built.
