    Winter boot brands?

    Looking for feedback on your fav winter boot . I am looking for warm, everyday, maybe sherpa lined boots. Not so much "snowboot" look. I have snowboots. No Uggs. (Appropriately named...Ugh! Imho).

    Looked at Teva brand.(Figuoro) Sounds like they run one size small according to the Amazon reviews tho good reviews otherwise . Looking at Alegria, Merrill.

    Thanks!
    Sandy

    I've always been a fan of "Sorel" boots; they last FOREVER :-)

    I'm more in favor of heavier socks than boots ..... I like to shed shoes when I come in the house but that's just my opinioin. I also don't like Uggs or their imitators.

    So funny that you mention "winter" boots. I had no idea there was a difference between "fall" boots & "winter" boots until my DD went to Syracuse University (we're from SoCal). "Winter" coats, too, I guess are different than "fall" coats...who knew?? My idea of "winter" shoes is sheepskin-lined flip-flops...
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Since moving to So. Cal. I haven't had any winter boots but when I was growing up in the Seattle area I had the best snow boots. Back in 1970 we called them mukluks, not sure what they would be called today. Totally not politically correct now because they were seal skin on the outside and sherpa on the inside. They were so comfy and waterproof. I could wear them in the house and outside.
    Sorry this doesn't help you now. But your question brought back the memory of those boots - a friend of mine borrowed them to go on a ski weekend and never returned them.

    Didn't buy any boots and not sure what is out there but yesterday finally bought a decent winter coat. Yep for down here. Family lives up north in Indiana and they're cold. In case of emergency, I need to have some heavy winter clothes on hand. Can't stand winter clothes that are heavy and don't keep you warm. quiltingcandy I know your pain. I lost a good winter coat and boots when I went to a winter party. I ended up having to borrow a friend's. I also would much rather wear heavier socks.

    I've been really pleased with a couple pairs of Keen boots. Very comfy, waterproof, and warm.

    I love Keen shoes and boots....they are the best..
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    I buy all my shoes and boots from "Online Shoes." I signed up for their emails and get coupons all the time. http://www.onlineshoes.com/shoes-boo...oots-list_ct27
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    There still a brand of Mukluks although I'm sure they are made from different sources now.

    Well, i did pull the trigger on the Teva Figuoro, shopping onlineshoes. I spent a couple of hours on the net searching for boots and considering the brands mentioned, but my attention kept coming back to this boot. I guess the faux shearling lining and the 12 degrees outside influenced my decision. Decent reviews too. We shall see! I hate to be cold and and I am in and out in this weather all day. It (weather) has arrived about 6 weeks early! Yikes!

    Thanks for the input everyone!

    I love Totes for keeping warm and dry. Not too attractive, but they're effective. Otherwise, Uggs for me.

    I have a pair of Frye boots that I got in 1979. I have had them resoled once and have Sno-Sealed them twice. Some years I never take them off and some years I don't wear them I would never give them up.

    I love my pair of Columbia boots. They are good to keep you warm to 25 below zero, which is what I need living in Northern Wisconsin. I think they cost me about $100 last year. Here is a link to the boots:

    I have had a pair of Bare traps for many years. They have lasted and I still wear them.

    Does anyone remember "Moon" boots? I loved those because they had a super warm liner and nylon outer.

    Glad I live in AZ where boots are a fashion statement.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Sorell is my choice too, they are made in Canada I believe. You can snow boot types or many other styles.

    While in Alaska 3 years ago I went to the "musk ox farm". they had scarves, mittens, blankets etc don't know if they make boots but if they do they would certainly be very warm. they say it is 8 times warmer than wool. I am so sorry I did not buy their scarf which is really knit in a circle and you can pull it up over your head to keep warm. Perhaps I can write or email them and still buy one.
