When Do I Weatherproof?

Weatherproof boots are the most popular and most essential footwear style anyone in New England can have in their fall wardrobe.  But, if you’re thinking of your classic L.L. Bean or Sperry duck boots, we’re not on the same page here.  While those boots are extremely practical, and last a very long time, the weatherproof boots I’m talking about are much more fashionable. 

While it may seem impossible to find a pair of boots offering durability and style, there is a happy medium.  Find a fashionable leather boot you can wear even on those rainy or snowy days.  Look for a boot specifically treated to repel the elements, sealed to keep your feet dry, and built for style and comfort.

            Most popular men’s footwear brands have some version of an all-weather boot in various colors and styles.  You may find a suede-like finish with a seal reading, “WEATHERPROOF” on the inside.  Or, a leather boot that promises to be “treated during the tanning process”.  Both are great solutions for a low-maintenance, but high functioning weatherproof boot.
