Hey, I'm looking for a winter shoes / boots
The basis points are:
- they should be able to deal with snow and keep by foots dry
- they shouldn't look like a tracking boots
Are they warm enough for winter? How will they deal with snow?
Are these guys still extremely plebful?
Also, what do you think about these timberlands?
What does it mean, that they are not "winter" boots? They will not be able to deal with snow, or what?
Winter will absolutely destroy those clarks. The timbs will fare better, but I think they look awful.
Look into LL Bean, Chippewa, Danner, and Fracap. What you probably want is something with a rubber commando/lug sole, made from cowhide rather than something finer like suede, nubuck, or calfskin.
Care is also vital. Something important for the longevity of your boots is to wear them on rotation. Give them at least 24 hours in between wears, to let the leather dry out, and brush off any dirt/salt you can see. If you get caught in a big snow that will persist for days, consider getting two pairs of boots.
I bought these from some random site a couple of months back, not realising they were geox until they came and they're surprisingly really nice boots. Sturdy as fuck and comfortable as well. The geox branding on them is absoloutely minimal and i really like the design.
Also on sale now as well.
