x2

I have had a pair in the closet since '88 and was going to school in VT. First pair got resoled about 5x until the leather got too worn and I needed to get another pair.

They are far from perfect but can do a lot of things decently. I wear a pair of Garmont hiking lo-cut boots 80% of the time for outdoor use but have the Bean boots for when things get wet/sloppy. They are packed in the 90 for off road trips just in case.

As a side bonus you can use them for going to the club on wet/snowy nights (said laughing at myself). Given Josh's affinity for Vineyard Vines wear, I am shocked he doesn't have a pair already.

I like my Matterhorn cold weather boots they are the cats meow. When I'm in civilian clothes though I have a pair of Sorrels my dad got me a couple years back that are almost as good.

Crazy coincedence Josh!

I just ordered these over the weekend.
http://www.muckbootsonline.com/Wetla..._p/wet998k.htm

I wanted something a little taller and not so extreme temperature range wise.

There's a link on expo that Justin M started recently almost the same subject. More shoe than boot, but there's some good option there as well.
