Summer is officially over and what that temperatures start to dip, little by little. And that means, it is time to bring out the boots. Given that most of us (in tech) tend to wear jeans pretty much all the time, I believe investing in a pair of good boots is a smart decision. They look good and can stand the daily wear and tear. There are dozens of options but I wanted to highlight three from US boot makers — Oak Street Bootmakers, RedWing and Wolverine. You can add Alden to the mix as well, but if you are shopping for boots, you need to take a close look at these.

Wolverines are my favorite and they go with me everywhere. I took them to Germany and they survived the rigors of a German winter without as much a sweat. I believe I will be wearing them for next ten years before taking them to a cobbler.
