    Default Fasionable Winter Footwear (M)

    SO as we get our first snowfall the questions draws nearer: What is good fasionable winter foot wear.
    A lot of you work trades so are restricted to wear work boots so not a lot of style/selection there, but for the people with office jobs do you ditch the dress shoes for something a little more functional in the winter?
    Calgary has a bad market for this kind of thing I find and it's impossible to find something that looks all right and is warm that won't disentegrate in a month.
    Any ideas?

    actually a good idea. i dont want to wear my office shoes in the winter snow/slush, but i also dont want to wear my shoveling boots to work and look like a tool.

    suggestions would be nice.

    Edit: ^ or that, until you decide to run out for lunch/errands or your car gets stuck in a snowbank...

    Keep a set of shiny indoor work shoes under your desk, leave your grimey boots in the foyer/closet.

    Exactly this, I have a pair of ugly outdoor/winter casual/dress shoes and another pair I keep at the office for when I get there.

    Sorel. Comfy and who the fuck cares? It's winter.

    I'd be more worried about my toes falling off.

    Walk outside... silly pho-ballers


    Garage to garage FTW. I would hate to go back to no UG parking at work

    There should be some selection at Browns, Aldo, or Little Burgundy stores.

    I leave a few pairs of shoes at the office and change into them. Walking into the office, I have a pair of leather boots with a rubber sole that look reasonably "office appropriate". Most days, I don't even change out of them haha.

    I like them, but they're very cowboyish, granted we're in Calgary so it's almost appropriate.

    I wear these, awesome boots for winter, sufficient grip on the boot so your not slipping around. Super warm and high enough to handle most snowy sidewalks. Also no laces, slip on slip off, super quick and easy.

    if you think selections here are bad, try shopping in Vancouver lol.
    For winter shoes on everyday wear, I would suggest bunkers for casual. But please keep in mind you gotta put your punks inside the shoes not outside.
    Ugg makes pretty nice leather boots as well. No I'm not talking bout those suede ones that all the girls wear.
    The military style is back again this year so I'd suggest boots that look military such like bunkers.
