hey all, i'm certain this has been discussed before and so i apologize for the repeat. Winter is upon us and I am in dire need of a good pair of winter boots. I've spent the majority of my winters trudging around in soaked canvas sneakers with frostbitten toes and have finally decided it's time for a change. I really like LL Bean boots as there good for outdoors but not too bulky, however i will not be purchasing a pair of leather boots anytime soon, or ever. So, any suggestions?
