I’ve been on a bit of a quest of late to find a pair of boots that will get me through 3 seasons of unpredictable weather here in New England. Along with the weather, I’ve been hoping to find a pair that will be as functional on my boat as they would be in a nice restaurant.
The current frontrunner in my personal boot derby is a pair from Chicago bootmaker Oakstreet Bootmakers. While they are ungodly expensive I subsribe to the philosphy of buy the right things, not a lot of things. So, I’m willing to fork over the money that will last me years to come.
Also, under heavy consideration is the Wabasha boot from Redwing.
