It's very rare I'd recommend clothing, but I have to say these slush proof boots found by Megan in Mark's Work Warehouse are superb for the Canadian weather. The bottom inch is a welly you see, the top is leather so they look okay in the office but don't suffer salt damage. I've tramped around Waterloo for the last few weeks and they cope easily with up to two foot snow and puddles and heavy rain. They're also insulated, which is handy when waiting for the bus. I attach some photos of me walking to work this morning - spot the new BlackBerry logo! Highly recommended!
