I'm looking too. Suddenly realised it's stupid not to have them as they should last years and keep me very toasty!

I've found these which are similar im-boot-brown//ski-snowboard-outdoor-sports/fcp-pr oduct/1159

I like the look of the first pair you posted.

Not as pretty as the Columbia boots, but this is the one I would pick. It's a slip-on, not leather or suede, and has great traction. The rip cord means you can adjust it for tightness, and keep your gloves on too. There's nothing as annoying as trying to deal with laces in the snow (taking off gloves, fumbling with wet/frozen laces, getting your fingers cold and wet) and the tongue of a laced boot needs to be attached or the odd bit of snow can get in. The synthetic construction dries out faster, needs no care, and won't crack or stiffen when winter is over.

Having slithered and slid I bought these today. Zip on side so no doing laces. I have just been and got grit for local pavements and didn't fall once. Maybe they are bit hiking boot-like but v suitable for where i live. ( and maybe I shouldn't be posting on Style and Beauty grin)

I got some boots from Trespass, but they don't seem to be online - have a front zip (but with full gusset job so can't leak) and toggle at top.
Got them a size bigger than I usually take so I can wear walking socks inside and still get them on and off really easily.

Not pretty but not quite as heavy-looking as that other pair, and seem very practical.

it between number 1 and these's-joan-of-arctic-b oot-suede/snow-boots/ski-snowboard-outdoor-sports/ fcp-product/15198 my only issue is which will keep my feet the warmest and dryest and will they be worth the money also need to not date as i dont intend to buy a new pair every year smile

Prefer number 1.

Number 1 seem to be sold out in very size, and number 2 in most sizes. (Although, for the record, I prefer number 1)
