    Winter's here!Need a good pair of walking boots.

    No snow on the ground yet in eastern Canada but I expect it will arrive at any moment.Hell,it's probably snowing now.I use a pair of knee high felt pack for busting through snow drifts,shoveling,and walking in the bush.But I need some good walking boots with a super gripping sole for running around town when the streets and sidewalks are ice covered.
    All suggestions welcome and greatly appreciated.

    Note:I should add that my budget is limited.

    I have some Merrell boots, that are very comfortable, waterproof, light, and warm.

    I bought mine at Sportcheck, but you could probably get them in most outdoor stores.

    Good morning Mike,
    when it comes to snow and ice, I wear SCARPA brand boots and the model is EIGER. The most sure footed, comfortable winter boot I've ever owned.

    The North Face are my products of choice, high quality materials and durable, as far as I'm concerned.

    my boot buy this year..

    Rubber boots, fitted with a removable felt liner like snowmobile boots. They have a tie off collar at the top to keep snow,etc from dropping into the top of the boot. With a pair of woolen socks, they fit my foot just fine for a day of walking around taking pictures of swamps, ponds, and shallow watercourses.

    First time that I had seen them. Found at Marks Work Warehouse, for about $40.

    I wore these on the Brits and Yanks workshop about a month ago, and were they ever useful; my trusty old hiking boots (wedding gift from my wife 12 years ago along with a $70 gold band in lieu of an expensive ring that I would never wear anyway) only saw service on the first day, then it was rubber boots for almost every other outing.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Oh yeah! I had a pair of North Face boots that lasted a long time before the soles wore out. I still use them for around the house stuff.
