battle -snow boots

White's Boots, storied boot-makers from the Northwest, have a newish winter boot The Snow Cat:
Removable Thinsulate liner
Lower profile foot with premium airbob sole
Latex sealed triple lock stitching
False tongue brush guard and nylon laces
Durable full-grain leather upper
No-chafe rolled collar
Steel shank for rigidity
Made in USA

The classic Sorel 1964 Pac™ Boot (originally made in Kitchener, Ontario):
Seam-sealed waterproof construction
Waterproof full-grain embossed leather upper
Removable recycled felt InnerBoot (w/ or w/o Sherpa Pile™ cuff)
Handcrafted waterproof vulcanized rubber shell with herringbone outsole
Ugly as sin and impossible to get the felt liners back in... but memmmoriessss...
I believe now made in China since Columbia Sportwear bought Sorel in 2000.

These are standing in the snow for hours or working the parking lot boots. Not simply walk around town when its slushy boots.
