What do you have that you couldn't get through winter without?

Particularly boots. I hinted to my friends & family that I wanted a nice pair of boots last winter, Christmas came, nothing. Ba$tards. Chicago winters are rough, lots of snow, lots of ice. Anyone have/recommend a pair of Timberlands, Columbias, or other boots? I'd like a pair that is good for trudging around in the snow, and also looks good when I go inside.

Those look like a great functional pair. Do you have those Brad?

This is the other side of the spectrum I had in mind...

...which makes me wonder if I should look for a hybrid of the two, or if I'd be better off with separate pairs.

Those Cabelas look much more comfortable/durable to walk and be active in out in the snow, while the Tim's would look better with my typical work/social attire. Hrmmmm...

Depends on what you want. Those Timberlands are basically fancied up leather work boots. Yes I own a pair of the Avalanche and they are awesome. I have been going to Cabela's for years, but I actually learned of these boots from Peyton's dad. I saw him wearing them at one of our snowboarding trips to Tahoe/Kirkwood and I was surprised that they didn't cost $200+.

So I was shoveling heaps of snow this morning, in -5 degree weather, feeling amazed that my feet were so warm and dry in my new boots from xmas, when it occurred to me that I owe someone a thank you...

THANK YOU BRAD WARREN!!!!

My sister wanted gift ideas so I sent out an e-mail linking the pair of boots you recommended as well as 2 other pairs I found that looked nice, and she picked yours. They were out of stock so she got me a slightly different pair. They're awesome. Thanks again for a great recommendation!

I heard these are a nice boot if you wear them a lot.

I wear some of these just if i shovel or have to be outside for a while.
Great boot for the money. If fashion is not key. They are 100% water proof, so you can stand in water and stay warm.
