i seen these boots at stoneridge i think it was, forget the company name, but they look like an old sacony shoe at the bottom but are high like boots, and have insulation inside......the black ones looked pretty cool.

I was thinking about this the other day actually too.

Not really a fan of the AM90 boots myself.

Could always just buy a cheap used pair of beaters off Ebay for cheap for the winter.

I saw some GoreTex Dunks recently on the front page of Hypebeast here.

Ransom has some Red Wing boots that look like they could work for winter.

Blundstones?

Sorels?

I dunno about winter, but for rainy weather I;m glad I bought my am90 boots. They're incredibly comfortable because the insoles are extra padded and feel like memory foam. Also, They're waterproof from the swoosh down.

I believe they are $160ish. The Nike Store on Bloor St. has them. I'm thinking of just rocking leather vandal his. The thick leather is warm, and they don't have any holes on the toebox for water to seap in. I sprayed some Footlocker shit on them so the water just beads off.

I'm going with the Nike Dunk High Gore-Textongueface


If you wanna slip on some ice because the sole has no traction, Be my guest. I'd wear dunk hi gore tex if it were raining, but I really wouldn't suggest it in the winter.

On ice, I would expect a running shoe like the dunk to perform better simply because there is more surface area of the sole making contact with the ice thus more friction which makes it harder to slip than a boot with its "knobby" sole. Unless of course you have miniature spikes on the bottom of your boots.

you expect wrong, my dunks slide like a bitch

obviously boots are going to be more equipped for winter than running shoes..

maybe, but I've never had a problem with Af1s on ice. Anyways, check out the Nike Store on Bloor, they have a couple of other boots besides the AM90 ones.
