My Gay Toronto - MGT Hot Topic

Now that Halloween has come and gone, it's time to think about what's around the corner. If the words “Canadian Winter ” mean anything to you, there’s a good chance you’re in the market for boots that can stand up to sub-zero temperatures.

Sometimes men like to pretend they don’t need to wear serious winter boots unless they’re working outdoors, so they spend all winter either forcing some sad, tired pair of sneakers to do the job or ruining their dress shoes by wearing them outside in all that moisture. Nothing gets more wear than winter gear—it’s the only thing you’ll definitely use day in and day out for the rest of the season, so it’s worth it to find a well-made pair of boots that are warm, weatherproof and stylish. Stash your dress shoes at work or tote them from home in your briefcase or work bag.

The problem is that most winterized boots look like they’re a better fit for scaling Mount Everest or sitting in a drum circle eating vegan trail mix, than they are for everyday life. In short, they’re heavy on function and light on looks. These boots, however, convinced us that one doesn’t have to come at the cost of the other.

Whether “winter” for you means a slight chill in the evenings or six months of snow, these boots will serve you well. It also proves that to be functional and stylish, does not mean you have to go to Holts and drain your bank account.
