Schnee's makes a good boot. I like the little details on this one like the kiltie. They are triple stitched and guaranteed waterproof. Schnee's also carries Filson and Woolrich items.

Another interesting find - Thanks. And another new name to me - I love all these American outdoorsy companies which are coming to the fore just now. Perfect comfortable practical stuff for Autumn.
