$149. It's hard to find a boot for less, even at a mall store like Aldo.
All leather—from the lining to the heel—with sturdy stitching, speed laces and a discreet rubber sole.
The boots broke in faster than most and aren't too heavy.
There's a lot asked of a cold weather boot. It should be substantial enough to withstand the rigors of winter, it should offer some traction on wet and slippery sidewalks and, ideally, it should be able to slip under your pants. So it's no wonder we received so many reader questions about this pair from Lands' End Canvas after a pre-order was put up on the brand's site earlier this fall. Priced well under comparable styles, the lace-up leather boots seemed too good to be true. We procured a pair to test out in the real world—wearing them nearly daily since last month. Sure, they're no Wolverine or Alden Indy, but they live up to the hype.
