Rain/Winter Boots

I know that there are dozens of threads on this but I wanted more of a up-to-date opinion. I have one more year left until I start full-time and I will be doing an IB internship in a city that will experience rain and cold (probably 30 degrees Fahrenheit at its worst in the winter). I am looking for boots for the long term that are versatile, good for those conditions mentioned above, and look decent with a suit on when needed during commutes. I know about the LL Bean duck boot and I really like the price and the $30 warranty on the sole. Any one have any opinions on what kind of boots I should be looking for? ($100-$250 preferably)

Like you said Bean boots are great. Sorel, Hunter, UGG, HH will all have good options too and aren't crazy expensive.

Also take a look at Cole Haan they have a ton of weatherproof boots that will look better with a suit as well.

This. No reason to drop anything more on boots which'll just see the exit of a subway station to the lobby of your building.

I wouldn't be wearing it for office. Just for the commute. I would have my actual shoes there to switch out.

not even joking or trying to get MS - bean boots are some of the nastiest, ugliest, and lowest quality boots ever. just buy a pair of 6 inch timbs and change them out in the office

nastiest, (fine) ugliest, (fine), and lowest quality (WRONG!) boots ever. just buy a pair of 6 inch timbs and change them out in the office

Dude personal style is personal style, no harm no foul there, but Bean boots are objectively of exceptional quality. They are one of the few ubiquitous products still made here in the USA and actually warrantied.
