Tried and True:Outdoor-City/Country-Boots

Part 4

City ice slicked sidewalks demand style, still.

Our fav waterproof boots-are for any place you stroll...
as well as the labels deemed timelessly fashionably chic...by even the pickiest attire snobs...

Is there anyone in this country that hasn't seen like every other person in colder/wet weather wearing L.L. Bean duck boots in some iteration.
No wonder-this company with the STILL generous return policy...introduces new styles as refreshing as the original classics.
The still made in Maine boot weather busters...small batch with water proof rubber bottoms + supportive steel shank, pictured above...on left women's cheery cherry/cherry guide orange ($119), kids' vintage style flexible waxed canvas-handstiched $129, and women's small batch 8"  premium full grain leather-(a guy version too-both $129) with rubber chain tread bottom for great durability/grip.  

Bernardo 1946-chelsea RAIN BOOTS are waterproof rubber kicks...side buckle adjusts (Zoe + Zain models-now on sale $99), other pull-on styles in multiple colors -including pastels which we love ---in the Paige- with pretty ribbon lace up backs $145.

Le Chameau Boots (women, men) are France's answer to the Brit's- Hunter...a heritage brand
We have a pair like these-that are leather lined purchased in France decade+ ago...but they're also now available in the USA-with different linings-like 3MM neoprene, wool or jersey lined...in low and mid heights.
