WInter Boot Choices
I am going to treat myself to some new boots as a Christmas present. My current favourites are a pair of Loake Design "Banks" boots- Loake Banks - Brown Derby Brogue Boot -Mens Shoes - Edwards of Manchester
I'm thinking either of these:
UGG® Hannen for Men | Waterproof Leather Work Boots at UGGAustralia.co.uk
I think the Uggs may a little impractical come spring (I have already made my peace with the fact they are Uggs!) . In the same vein, I think the white soles on the Grensons may become passe quite quickly. Any thoughts or any alternatives?
I guess you may be right on the vibram sole becoming passe too quickly, but being at the same pricepoint that the Uggs, you're definitely getting a better quality (and better looking) shoe with the Grensons.
When you say the Loakes are your current favourites do you mean that you already own a pair? Because if they're in the runnings they'd certainly be my choice.
If not, I prefer the Grensons of the two you posted, but if you're looking for a bit of a statement boot, how about something slightly more subtle?
Grenson | Glenn military bootSome may understandably be wearying of the military boot by now, but that one looks quite cool to me - a dandier take, informed by the heritage trend. One to consider?
I already own the Loakes, sorry.
Basically I want boots that;
A- I can wear casually or on a night out. &
B- don't have leather soles so I stand a chance of staying vertical on the snow!
Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks for you help
In that case there are some excellent product picks in today's article. Have a gander!
a cheaper alternative to the uggs but still good quality with the vibram sole at only £70 its bargain at urban outfitters withs these for £70!
I agree, the Vibram sole will become passe all too quickly and the one thing you want from boots is longetivty if you are splurging on something the quality of Grenson's.
