Not waterproof but man do they look great. And as long as it’s not super bad out, these’ll at the very least be a smart choice for getting to and from somewhere that requires nice clothes (and shoes), yet will grossly outperform standard dress shoes. Studded Dainite rubber sole. Goodyear welted of course. Still made in the USA. Built on the 65 last, so it should fit like a Strand. Also shown at the very top of the post.

80% Wool / 20% Nylon. Skier guy on that sweater is straight out of
Burgundy suede makes for a change of pace.
A friendly reminder that Spring is just a couple of months away. And that means spring getaways. Maybe. Get that travel insurance. From their “imported” line of casuals, but these have garnered a lot of really positive reviews. Available in four other colors if blue isn’t your thing.
