Just bought these boots from Timberland's website. They are currently $128 with free shipping until January 3rd, then they will go back up to $160. I looked ALL over the internet for weeks trying to find a boot that would look sharp, and handle snow or mud- while being affordable. It's hard as hell to find a boot with form AND function. They arrived in the mail a few days ago and I'm confident in saying these boots suffice for Church, work, the bar, walking in snow, and a lot more settings, and they have a side-zipper for quick on/off & they are real comfy (to boot). Hats off to Timberland, I thought they only made boots for guys wearing hardhats or flatbrims.
