The Wenatchee's were awesome this winter. Lot's of slush, snow and ice and the feet were warm and dry.

Highs average in the 20's to low 30's during the day and might drop to 0 or 10 once in a while at night. We can get cold snaps much lower with the wind chills measured in.

Here's some additional specs if you're interested...

I bought these Cat boots orginally because they were dirt cheap (50 bucks normally 130). I normally tear up a pair of boots per month no matter what brand I try. Im at the 7 month mark on these and I think I'll get a few more montha out of them

Thorogood 8".

Wearing the soft toes now, but also have steelies.

Very comfortable boots. Some days they feel like you're wearing slippers.

Carolina 8in un insulated for summer

Redwing with king toe for cooler days and muddy days.

Keen for the days I wear shorts or sheeting a roof. Go to shoe for inside work too.
One of my knees is all messed up and I'm flat footed so gel arch supports are a must in all my shoes. All but my red wings had them in from new.

Dakota Brand flat bottomed kicks. I like them because they have I nice wide base to prevent twisted ankles, and actually are steel toed. Also easy to slip on and off in the customer's house.

Stompers... Straight out of BC, steel sole and toe, CSA cert. And they threw in a free hat! Just got them last week.

I've always loved the dealer/Chelsea boot style. Slip on, slip off. Was bouncing about in a similar pair that I picked up on my last jaunt to the UK, until the steel sole started slipping out the side... Then those became concreting boots.

That's a problem. I wear Jordan high tops to frame in and the socks keep saw dust from irritating my bare ankles and they leave a repulsive tan line. At night when I'm wearing flip flops all you see walking down the street are a pair of glowing feet.
