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.

I love boot season!
Wait I thought it was boot season for the ladies all year round. 🙂
Heya Om, long time, reader, first time commentator. Highly recommend you and your readers give Helm Boots a look/ try. (http://helmboots.com/ –Austin, Texas.) Elegant craftsmanship, indomitable construction, and made in America. **Just a raving fan; no affiliation with the company.
Thanks for the suggestion. I was going to try it out.
Another vote for Wolverine. I have a pair that are about 7 or 8 years old that get used in the Fall and Winter in the Northeast. These aren’t from their high end – I think I paid about $150 for them at the time on a year end sale. Apart from keeping them clean (there is a lot of salt here in the Winter), no cobbler work yet. Up until then I wore Red Wings during the cold weather, but these have held up better and the last they use is closer to fitting my clown feet.
Love these, just need to convince my hubby to wear them.
