    I was going to say, maybe we should focus on good looking cheap shoes that could be modded to a winter sole.

    You'll need at least two pairs. Wet, cold boots are miserable. If you do a lot of walking, insulated boots will make it much more pleasant. Rubber soles are essential. Many people making recommendations have obviously never been to Montreal in winter. The engineer boots in your first post are the best so far. I wear Filson boots and they're great, but probably not your style. [​IMG]

    Uncontrol you're not going to beat RW2268s, they're the closest it gets to invincible tanks in your style. Just cough up the extra money and stop buying Tornado Mart floral prints for a month. It's worth it because you won't have to worry about winter boots for like 20 years!

    i'd tend to agree with Aeglus... although i think the just cavalli ones fit your personality even better

    My only comment is not to get the black-on-black Sorels. I have them. They don't look good. In real life, they look worse than the pictures. As a "shovel 3 feet of snow" boot they are passable. For everything else, they are complete POSes.

    I lived in Toronto last winter, and I agree that some of the boots posted here are pretty high-fashion for brutally cold snow, slush and ice.

    No matter how good the boots are, isn't the salt going to chew them up regardless? I guess you could carry a bottle of leather cleaner and a steady supply of soft cloths with you everywhere you go.

    Yes, this is inevitable. I have a pair of Red Wings that I've worn through 3 winters as an alternate pair of boots and they're in rough shape. Just clean them off at the end of the day and you can keep most boots for at least a few years.

    I just want some black wellies.

    Well thats a lie. I want black knee high horseback leather boots (would totally take the RL ones) but I have never found something like that for much under a grand.

    unc, you should do what softy is doing...except with cuban heels.
    cuban heel-commando sole boots!!


    Honestly sounds awesome but cuban heels on ice sounds like a bad idea.
